This was one attempt in a series of refinements by Gibson in trying to 'capture' the historically-accurate J-45 (whatever that is....).
There have been re-issues, "Historics", "Authentics", "Legend", and "True Vintage" too -- in 1997/8, they came up with the "Early 60s" Hummingbird as well as the "Early J-45". At the time, they were intended to be a more accurate representation of a particular snapshot-in-time of the J-45's glory days.
Hope it sounds good!

Wish I hadn't of course. Beautiful guitar - get it! White tuner knobs and single ring rosette, and orange label.
The neck wasn't 1 3/4 it was standard gibson width. The neck was fairly low profile. My 93 J-45 has a much thicker neck, but great to play.
