  1. Hello all, I'm new to the forum, but a long time Gibson enthusiast. I have been playing guitar for about 15 years, and lately I found myself playing more acoustic than electric, so I decided to check out some Gibson acoustics. My old acoustic guitar was an Art & Lutherie which I got for my 16th birthday, and it has seen many hours of playing and many rainy campfires, so needless to say she was ready for retirement. I just recently picked up a brand new Gibson J45, and I am looking forward to learning new tricks and techniques to keep my new baby looking and sounding great for many years to come. The J45 is the first nice acoustic that I have owned. When I went in to look at new guitars, I orignially had my heart set on a Gibson Hummingbird, but I also wanted to check out some Martins and Taylors just to get an idea of what else is out there. But when I played the J45, I immediately fell in love with the guitar. I know that every guitar plays and sounds slightly different, and I really think I found a gem with this one. The tones are so full and rich, and the neck feels absolutely perfect. Although I have always dreamed about owning a Hummingbird, when I was playing all the guitars in the shop and I played the Hummingbird and J45 back to back, I just kept going back to the J45. I knew that guitar was meant to be mine. So I bit the bullet and forked over a princely sum to puchase the J45, but I have absolutely no regrets. I know that I would have been kicking myself for a long time if I left the store without that guitar in my hands. I have always thought that Gibson makes the finest guitars in the world, and when I put the J45 up against the other high end acoustic guitars, I was again reminded of why I love Gibson so much. I also own a Gibson Flying V which I purchased new in 2001. Anyway, I just wanted to introduce myself here before I begin browing the forums. I'm glad to have found this forum so now I can talk about guitars with fellow Gibson nuts instead of boring the crap out of the wife all the time. Here's a couple pics of my new J45. Cheers! Phil
