Saw an ebay post for a 1975 Gibson J-45, but the pictures show a square-shouldered axe, looks more like a songwriter. Other pics show documents & tags thatshow it's a J-4. I'd never heard of a J-45, 50, etc. with square shoulders. Anyone else? Is this a scam?

There were square shoulder J45s made during that era - late 60's earely 70's, not one of their most notable times. Acoustic Gibsons during the Norlan Era are generally viewed as very hit and miss.
