J45 thru vox ac15

It would probably sound good, but not necessarily beatly.

The code behind J & G 's sound is not least the kind of cold slightly metallic combo of ceramic saddles and the latter-braced plywood guitars. 

Listening in you'll notice that these 160s weren't the conventional warm merging 'wooden' factor but rather pretty harsh semi-acoustic rock instruments.  Well, guess you already know.

J-160E's had a P90 Pickup as well.

While J45's might look similar it's a totally different Guitar....

That said, AC15's are great Amps. Especially if they have Celestion Alnico Blue Speakers.... Your J45 would sound great thru one..

Good point - and they were recorded through the Vox amps, , , though also sometimes miked up, which may have started a few years in.

Actually not sure if there's a pattern or a point where they go from one method to the other - guess they switched their way forward by ear. 

Research on the topic has of course been done down in every corner.

This book would probably tells a lot ~ Recording the Beatles by Kevin Ryan & Brian Kehew: Good Hardcover ...  I recall it as splendid.

This is the most important thing. With a P-90 at the end of the fretboard, the J-160E is essentially a flat-top version of the ES-125. Other than the new humbucker-equipped J-45, the rest don't have electric guitar pickups.

That said, one of my favorite electric guitar recordings was actually made with my Martin and an undersaddle pickup through multiple effects.

I own a Ltd. Edition Bozeman Masterbilt Gibson Solid Top J-160E. It sounds great as an Electric Guitar & it also sounds great as an Acoustic... Which is why I chose it over the J-45's.... The Beatles connection had a lot to do with it too...
