Finally got me a J-45...again.

 

Had few J45’s in the past and I don’t know why I ever sold them...well I am hopeful this one will stick around. Perhaps just me but it seems burst has gotten better recently. Or maybe mine is just special :)

 

Also to note, 2018 case is now brown as shown in picture and case candy has changed. No more pack of strings but now they include a strap, pick holder, towel, and most important... TRUSSROD TOOL!!! In the past it was pain to find one local thin enough to fit. I’m glad it’s included now. Also I don’t recall from the other ones I have owned but the body binding on this one is but more yellow in person. Me like it!

 

Tone? Did I mention mine is special?!?! :D

 

 

Question: anyone know what the stock strings are? It’s no longer the Gibson master built 80/20 it seems to me. It’s darker color such as PB.

 

Cheers!

Arguably the best all-purpose workhorse of a guitar on the planet. (Martinettes would say a D-18) I love the round-shouldered J45. I never travel with any of my guitars but when I'm out of town for any length of time I will rent a J45.

 

Congrats on a beautiful instrument. It will just get better and better.

Oh wow!!! That’s just stunning to me. Is that yours? Is it standard model with two tone burst? It almost look 3 tone burst with lots of yellow in the middle. Is the Photo processed in anyways? Geez... so perfect and love the picture.

That IS a beautiful burst. And pic # 3 shows a great break angle and tall saddle.

 

Now I’ve got a new case to jones after, too.

 

Congrats and enjoy.

 

I was just thinking the same...really looks like Gibson have sorted the inconsistent neck angle issues recently.

W e l l . . .

 

Looking at the air under the low E, there is a fair amount of it under that string- but that is a scary-high saddle (not necessarily a bad thing {unless..}).

 

 

A practical advantage of the non-black case such as the one above, or the Cali/TV/Vintage cases- less likely to be accidentally taken home in a multi guitar jam situation.

Sweet, Congratulations Skyrider. I have one but it is a '15 and recently I had a surgery that prevented me from playing my larger Dreads,instead I have spent most of my brief playing time with the LG-2 Ae. When I did get the 45 out recently I fell in love with it all over again they are great guitars.. Have fun my friend.
