DonCarlos Posted June 6, 2009 Report Share Posted June 6, 2009 I have read similiar questions about what model of J45 a person has, so maybe this post will be of interest. The answer. I have a J45 Modern Classic Standard, I think. LOL I don't why these things mean so much to me, since they are the same exact guitar, but I kept wondering what model my guitar was, since it was built in the Fall of 2008 and I purchased it new a couple months ago . So of course I write to Gibson with all the information I had, which included the serial number, model number, the information of the box shipping label, the Body Construction Tag taped on the inside of my guitar and description, and their verdict: Hello, Your serial number is consistent with a J-45 Standard, which to my knowledge is no different than the Modern Classic. All modern Gibson acoustics (i.e., not historic or vintage in appearance) have the white labels. Also, your tuners are consistent with the Standard, or Modern Classic, as they are indeed a modern tuner--as opposed to the white plastic button tuners. Best regards, XXXXXX XXXXXXX Gibson customer service So although the box shipping label says MC, and the Body Construction Tag says MC, the serial number is consistent with a J45 Standard. So I have deemed my model a J45 Modern Classic Standard. But depending in the future which may or may not have more value, I will then settle on one model name. If it is indeed the new J45 Standard then perhaps the box shipping label and the handwritten BC tag were done at the transitional stage of switching the packaging and label over. Or I could just say "My guitar is a J45". Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
