1949 Gibson J-45
Case: Hardshell case

If you've been collecting Gibson guitars for any amount of time, you know that they would do some seemingly unexplainable things from time to time. This SJ/J-45 hybrid would definitely fall into that category. The binding and top finish are indicative of a Southern Jumbo, but the neck would have been intended for a J-45. Both the body and neck are stamped with matching Factory Order Numbers, so they probably were just trying to get the guitar out the door as soon as possible. The finish is original as is the bridge , bridge plate, pickguard, and tuners. The original bridge was shaved down to combat rising action, but the guitar received a refret and neck reset more recently imparting excellent playability. The guitar itself is free of cracks and sounds great. Check out the demo below!
