New J45 Custom


Recommended Posts

Wife's on vacation, she won't know for a while.

No no no, that's not how its done. [-X You must start planting seeds weeks in advance. Leave some printouts on the dinner table of a $10,000 plus vintage at Gruhn's or something. Start a conversation along the lines of - "Good lord, I can't believe some guys spend X$ on a single guitar - that's just insane, what would you think is a reasonable number? I would think a guy could find a very nice instrument for 3 or 4 thousand." Very important to refer to the guitar as an "instrument", makes as though the topic of the conversation is centered around wisdom, and responsibility, instead of the mis-direction it really is. 8-[ Good luck.

Thanks folks.


Really diggin' this bad boy.


I did play a few J35s and found them extremely nice, especially at their price point.

I was very close to pulling the trigger on a J35, however the Adi top of the J45 won me, and my wallet, over in the end.

Visited my local Gibson dealer with the intent to try out the new J35 and came home with this:




2013 J45 Adirondack in Sunset Burst.


Wow, is all I can say.

I have just done the same thing, shopping for a J35 and ended up with J45. Although I love everything about my guitar its the smell when I open the case that gets me, Its like a sexy woman's perfume. My mates don't get it, when I tell them about the smell. Maybe its just me ah?
