For sale due to to imminent 50th birthday purchase!
This is a wonderful Gibson J45 Custom Shop Tonewood Edition in Honduran Rosewood and Sitka spruce. Built in 2017 (according to serial number) lovely amber burst to top looks really classy.
This guitar appears to have been modified by previous owner with he original (not very good) pickup removed and a top quality bone saddle installed. Also the nut looks to have been replaced as well. It looks like the previous owner had a sound hole pickup fitted and unfortunately there is a little chip on the sound hole. Nothing a marker pen couldn’t cover but I am being honest. One or two other little marks but overall in really good condition. Structurally sound. End pin reamed out ready to receive a pickup of your choice.
This guitar sounds amazing. All the playability of a J45 with Rosewood tone and overtones - yum!!

walkingdecay: The smell of wet dog is not nice. You'd think they would do something about that.

walkingdecay: Martin: Limited time free trial of Fallout 76 on a the moment. Having tried it I think it's not bad, certainly not the disaster it was claimed to be during the press feeding frenzy. Apparently the next patch is introducing NPCs too.

walkingdecay: Teehee! Wet dog combined with essence of cat. I know someone who wears that fragrance.

Martin: walkingdecay sorry just noticed our Fallout 76 shout out - if there are NPCs and proper quests, I may well invest...

walkingdecay: At the moment it's still a Mission Impossible type thing driven by found tapes, but it's completely soloable. I did about five hours without a word to or help from anyone.

Onechordtrick: Half way through Rolling Thunder and listening to “a Hard Rain’s a Gonna Fall”. Could almost be the prototype for punk.

walkingdecay: I'm almost sorry I cancelled Netflix. I'll have to get the Blu ray.
