J-45 Standard

J-45 Standard

I’ll have my J45 for one year as of July 5th. Got it at GC’s 4th of July sale. I went up there specifically to buy a Gibson CJ165. A J45 was not even on my radar scope at the time. They brought the J45 to the floor while I was there. They tuned it and I reached for it to play. Primarily because it was brand new and I just wanted to play it. Soon as I played it I think I knew…lol…It was instantaneous. I wanted that guitar. I played it for a while and took it home. No regrets. It’s as easy-to-play as any guitar I’ve ever owned and/or paid extra money to have professionaly setup. It came that way straight from Gibson. I’ll still get a CJ165, but am definitly glad I have the J45. The way things happened that day, I suspect it was just meant to be that I bought a gibson j-45 1967.

in all sincerity, I would not get wrapped-up in any kind of thinking that says you should only use certain kinds of guitars for certain kinds of music. Some guitars, due to their volumn, tone, physical appearance, etc. may be better suited for a particular genre of music/songs than others, but your gibson custom j-45, etc. can play pretty-much whatever you want to play on it……I hope you get the guitar you need.BTW, a sweet guitar like a Gibson will make you want to play it. It’s easier to make yourself practice on an instrument you can bond with.

The TV line does seem to be the most widely appreciated here, and there are some nice recordings posted which indicate why. There certainly is an impression of good consistency in the line, but there are several comparative reviews which found in favour of a Standard model over a TV. Depends what you like, really. Definitely worth trying as many slopeshoulders as you can manage. Despite certain broad similarities between models of a given design, Gibson acoustics are very much individuals. If the one you tried really spoke to you, then that is probably the individual guitar you want. If the process of saving makes it unlikely that you’ll get that particular 45 TV, at least you have a yardstick by which to judge others.

Gibson Memphis built the 1964 Gibson 345 TD semi-hollowbody electric guitar to vintage specs for an instrument that plays just like the original. The ES-345 TD’s neck and body are built using hot-hide glue which many argue sounds better than synthetic glue. Gibson Memphis also uses a vintage-accurate truss rod, truss rod washer, and anchor in the guitar’s neck. Every piece of wood used in the ES-345 is hand selected by its looks and weight. Just like the original, these guitars are lightweight wonders to play.

Tonal excellence is yours when you plug the Gibson Memphis j 45 gibson guitar TD into your favorite tube amplifier. Loaded with a pair of MHS Alnico pickups, each with its own volume and tone controls, you’ll be able to dial in chiming country tones as easily as savagely distorted rock tones. The Alnico III neck pickup gives you classic hollowbody-style tones for everything from smooth jazz to dirty blues. Flip to the Alnico II bridge pickup, and you’ll command sounds covering everything from bright and clean to raw and mean. Sweetwater guitarists have found that between the alnico pickups and the 6-way Varitone filter, you can create a wide range of tones that will work at any gig.

Rosewood Fingerboard with Rolled Edges and Dot Inlays,The fingerboard of Gibson’s J-45 is constructed from the highest grade rosewood on earth, which is personally inspected and qualified by Gibson’s team of skilled experts before it enters the Gibson factories. The resilience of this durable wood makes the fingerboard extremely balanced and stable, and gives each chord and note unparalleled clarity and bite.

The J-45 guitar’s dot inlays are made of genuine mother of pearl, measuring approximately 1/4-inch in diameter, and are inserted into the fingerboard using a process that eliminates gaps and doesn’t require the use of fillers. The fingerboard also sports a rolled edge instead of the usual right angle where the fingerboard surface meets the neck. Gibson Acoustic’s rolled edges are slightly beveled for an extremely smooth and comfortable feel, enhancing the playability of the J-45.
