Gibson J-45 "1942 Banner Re-issue" w/Torrified Top (2012)
We offer this very nice top-notch Gibson J-45. It's the superior "1942 Banner Re-issue" version with a thermally aged solid Adirondack Spruce top in a tasteful vintage sunburst - relatively new but already with a nice vintage type vibe. Made in 2012 (#12005019), It remains in very good condition with some normal scratches, small pick marks and dings and very slight clouding from use and wear which only seem to give the guitar even more vibe. The neck is straight and the action comfortable and the tone is pleasing and resonant. Comes with its original Gibson hard case.
Described on net as follows:
"Considered by many to be the preeminent vintage acoustic guitar, the Gibson J-45 Jumbo has inspired generations of songwriters and performers, finding its way onto countless hit records and gracing stages all over the world. In celebration of the J-45's proud history, Gibson has released the 1942 Banner edition J-45. Meticulously constructed with old school craftsmanship, the 1942 Banner J-45 is a portal to another time, with a smooth vintage sound and an intangible vibe. Gorgeous thermally-aged Adirondack spruce tops the 1942 Banner J-45's mahogany back and sides, combining for a warm, sonorous tone that projects admirably from its Jumo-sized body. The thermally-aging process draws out the best characteristics of this tonewood pairing and imbues the 1942 Banner J-45 with a lived-in quality, unlike other newly produced acoustics. Premium appointments include a bone nut, open-back cream tuners, mother-of-pearl neck inlays, hand-sprayed burst top, and a hot hide glue top bracing for superior tonal response."
