J45 -Two piece top?

Recommended Posts

Hi this is my first post as I'm trying to enter the Gibson line with a J45. My first real guitar.

 

I've seen a 2002 VS sunburst for sale with a piezo pickup that I suppose was installed after market - no preamp. My question concerns:

 

The front is two-piece, like you would see on the back of many quality guitars. Is this correct? It raised a flag with me so I just wanted to confirm with some knowledgeable folks before considering it any further.

 

Thanks,

Dave

Thanks for the info. And there is nothing else that was concerning me. I just realized that I wasn't sure if I'd ever seen a j45 with a two piece top. There are some J45 players around here at the open mics I play and gigs. I never really looked that closely at them, so I just wanted to check with you all.

99.9% of acoustic guitars have two peice tops. The exceptions being some prewar Martins and Gibsons that had four piece tops and a rare later Martin here and there as well with a four piece.

I guess you don't notice as much with J45s because of the 'burst.
