J-45 without bridge dots?


Recommended Posts

We were discussing this in another thread, and the question came up about which J-45s do NOT have the pearl dots on the bridge. Mine, a 1942 J-45 Legend from CME, does not, but I'm curious about others.

Here's mine. Let me know if this picture doesn't show up.

There were early-1942 J45s and J50s which did not have the bridge bolts.  So the guitar loaned Gibson to copy obviously  was one which lacked that feature.  Oddly, the earliest Banners also lacked a center back strip.
