Gibson G-45 Standard with Rosewood fingerboard now?


Recommended Posts

On the Gibson site I see that the fretboard of the Standard G45 now is made out of Rosewood in stead of richlite? That would justify the higher price for me. Richlite was a step down from walnut for me, to be honest. Do all new Standard G45's now ship with rosewood fretboards? Would be worth to wait for me...

That appears to be correct, the shop I bought mine had two. One richlite and one with rosewood. I also prefer a "real" full wood guitar. I bought the rosewood one made in june 2020.

How it will sound I don't know yet because I bought the guitar online and will arrive this coming tuesday.

I am convinced the sound will differ somewhat as richlite is a very hard material.
