Gibson Guitar: J-45 Vine (2005)

Please Call to Inquire

SOLD

Used Gibson Custom Shop J-45 Vine Guitar

  • Rosewood back & sides-
    • Sold to the previous owner as "Brazilian rosewood" by a reputable Gibson dealer.  Even though this guitar was built in 2005, and Gibson, for the most part, stopped utilizing Brazilian rosewood in 2003, we are more willing than not to believe that this guitar does have Brazilian rosewood back & sides. The appearance of the wood is consistent with Dalbergia Nigra in our experience. And the tone backs it up. Additionally, the Gibson worksheet on this guitar list the back & sides as  "Various".  It does, indeed, seem like this one was meant to "slip under the radar".  You be the judge.
