Nothing so sweet as having a Gibson approved by Gibson haters. Left that forum years ago!

 

Man, I read all of those post's and only saw a few snarky ones. Which is pretty normal for any forum. 

The responses were almost all pretty darned positive AND it went 3 pages pretty quick.

A few is to many for me! This is the kind of stuff I’m taking about.

“ had been eagerly awaiting these because I genuinely haven’t liked almost anything Gibson has done in decades “

Being a Gibson guy I too look forward to seeing what they are like.  Seems odd that there is info on other sites yet it is not been officially rolled out here on Gibson.com.

I wonder what the difference is between the G45 standard and the J45 studio is besides the standard having a richlite bridge and fingerboard and the J45 studio (and the G45 studio for that matter) having a walnut bridge and fingerboard, and the fingerboard inlays? From what I can see I dont understand why the G45 standard is cheaper than the J45 studio. Maybe its because J comes after G in the alphabet therefore must also be higher in the price 🧐JK

I love the look of these. The one in the AGF thread is stunning. I don't go for satin finishes generally and that Sonitone would be out of there in a flash, but otherwise I could really see myself owning one of these. I've missed the Walnut tone since I parted with my J15 in '17 and one of these could be a great replacement, especially with the thinner body profile...that really appeals to my shoulder issues too.

How much can you water down the J-45 to meet a certain low price point until it becomes a huge mess? I wish Gibson would not engage in compromising their ideals and standards to that end which is ultimately short lived, short sighted.

I don't know - I'm excited about it, and can be just within reach of some who would really love a Gibson and can't go for a full dollar J45 or bird or a stepping stone for someone undecided.  They do need to match the strategy with a quality product though, I'm routing for it

A new J-45 is a stretch financially for a lot of people. I think the G-45 is a great guitar for a young person, or someone on a budget. Even a gigging musician as a main guitar or back up. There's plenty of competition out there in the sub $1500 range and I think it's great Gibson is producing an all USA built guitar below that price point.  If it helps keep Gibson in business for years to come I'm all for it.

Hmm...these don't seem to be available in Europe yet. I wonder when/if they will surface?

Seem to be available over here.  If I was ever to go this way I think I like the studio version.  Maybe I'm being a curmudgeon but not sold on richlite yet...  and diamond inlays really don't do much for me.

Almost seems like it harkens back to the WM-45, but with the Walnut B/S of the J-15, and other changes to keep down costs. I don’t have any problem with it. Hope it sells!
