Slash Signature J 45 Pair

Folks,

Slash Signature J 45’s have been announced

Taken from Guitar World:

 

The J-45s feature a custom Slash-approved C-neck profile and a "fatter and more modern" 16" fretboard radius (the 2019 Standards have a 12" fretboard radius). There's no wood spec revealed by Gibson just yet but it looks very much like the regular run of J-45s with a solid Sitka spruce top, solid mahogany on the back and sides.

As with the Les Pauls, the J-45s have signature or blank truss rod covers, Slash "Scully" sketch on the back of the headstock – and, yes, they come with the picks, too.

 

45s available in November Burst and Vermillion Burst.

How many sig models does one man get? When I think J-45, I think Slash.

 I don’t think this this is going to be a grandfather vintage spec 45.I think this is going to be a “play all over the fretboard” instead of just a “cowboy strummer” 

 

I’ll be at NAMM .Will report back with thoughts on the model.

Thanks to Mr. Horse. As mentioned above, I still don't know, and fretboard radius is not something I've ever paid much attention to. 

But someone ought to tell Thalia.

That is fine, but if your capo is not the same radius as your fretboard  it will not put even pressure on your strings and one or two may choke out.  But I think Thalia's come with replacement pads for different radius's or is it radii?

Right. Hence, the "someone should tell Thalia". Not a big capo person, here. . .  In general, capo≠jam friendly.

and we can't always trust specs on big G website. Anyone got a contour gauge?😙

I used to have a radius gauge, and I do not have a J-45. Lots here do and can probably rattle off more J-45 specs than you can shake a stick at. Why don't you take the lead on informing Thalia. My Shubb and Kyser are the radius for my guitars. Thalia's are a like $60 and I got all the capo's I need.

Not to mention Thalia can do the same thing I did go on line an look. Plus they are selling the product  and should know. You would think they may have  different guitars in the plant to  do R & D.
