1966 Gibson J45 thoughts on quality


Recommended Posts

Hello I’m new to this forum I appreciate you allowing me to come in and ask questions it’s a great resource to have available I’m in the middle of trying to decide on a good quality guitar 
 

I had the opportunity to buy a mint condition rarely played kept in case 1966J 45.

 

I understand that the bridge changed in the 50s? Is it the sound quality is greatly reduced does anybody have an opinion on this.

I think I’m getting a great price of $2700 but then I read sometimes if there’s such a your loss in quality sound that might be better off getting a 50s if I can afford it

 

Thanks again and look forward to hearing from someone

Hello and welcome..   You are probably better off asking this in the acoustic section.. You may get some answers here but you will get more there....

My opinion: play the guitar if it sounds good to you and price you feel is good buy it.

Acoustic guitars need more care than electric. 

Make sure glue hasn't dried out. 

Neck doesn't need a reset, bridge isn't lifting,  etc.
