My new J-45


Recommended Posts

I just got a J-45 off E-Bay. It was the one signed by Jackie Greene. It's a 2006 in pristine condition. I've removed the signature (Sorry Jackie, I'll probably regret it when you get really huge). I'll learn a couple of his songs to replace mojo.


Questions: It has the plastic button Gotoh tuners, were these stock that year? Do they change components year to year? The label says J-45. The inspection card says 'VS'(vintage sunburst)?


Guitar is great! It really booms! It blows my Larrivee L-05 away volume wise.


Cheers, Mike

Love my standard J-45.It's only in the last few years I have been able to afford higher end acoustics.When I went to buy my first all solid wood guitar I was not very knowledgable...a J-45 was a bit out of my range...i played one for the first time and thought..wow this really has a unique sound I like........long story short..the salesman talked me into a Larrivee D-03..lots of BS about subtle overtones...Gee I thought I better get those overtones..haha.....

Got a J-45 in Japan and the Larrivee never gets played anymore....unless by a visiting friend
