Here is a rare 2004 Gibson J-45 Custom Vine in sunburst finish!
Gibson makes a few guitars which stand above the rest – this is one of those guitars. The abalone and pearl vine inlay is stunning! The inlay is done into a jet-black ebony fretboard. As you know, ebony fretboards are an increasing rarity at Gibson, since they aren’t currently producing any guitars with ebony boards. They are all rosewood.
The back and sides of the guitar are AAA-grade Indian rosewood and gorgeous! They give the guitar a deep and full-bodied tone (I did play the guitar momentarily to ensure the action and tone).
The top of the guitar is made from AAA-grade Sitka spruce.
The guitar also features an abalone rosette and abalone purfling, similar to the Gibson Doves in Flight – another masterpiece.
This guitar has been used, but is in good condition. It shows minor signs of use, and a few nicks here and there. There are no major issues with the guitar. It has been well taken care of, and well used. It’s not quite for the collector out there, more for the player.
The case isn’t in great condition. It is structurally sound, but has quite a bit of scuffing. The handle has been reattached using wire, but it is solid and functions just fine.
Included is the original hardshell case and all case candy. The guitar even includes the original hangtags.
Additional shipping options are available upon request for international buyers.
