Played my first J-45 Custom


Recommended Posts

After having read many comments over time about this model, I finally ran across my first J-45 Custom at GC yesterday. I was very impressed! Overall, the guitar sounded great - nice sparkly highs, balanced over the full range. But what really stood out were the deep, rich lows. Hitting the low E string open gave a resounding boom that went on forever. Overall, a great guitar. The rosewood body gave it quite a different sound from the J-45 True Vintage that was hanging next to it (possibly different bracing, too). If I had not recently blown my guitar fund on another Gibson acoustic, I very well might have left the store with it!


I now understand first hand what others love in this model. Just wanted to share.
