Gibson J-45 Custom Shop 60s reissue
Made in USA
Pure acoustic
Gibson Custom Shop


Super nice to me handle, which was well in hand, ie neither too thin nor too thick
profile in the most beautiful rounded.
Access to acute satisfactory for this type of guitar.
a key top quality Indian rosewood, very nice. Also for the hoop at the top of this great guitar.
No fault level frets buz or small E string that gets stuck in the bottom frets ...
good setting, I find the string action a little high for my taste
but it is true that I play with guitars with low action and strings extra light Martin
I think a little later to lower the string action.


I play and compose music style pop rock influenced by years end 1960/1970 (that's the beautiful world :))
But bossa and many arpeggios or it sounds great set, with a crystal clear Kazi side.
a well-balanced sound.
Actually it is a very versatile guitar to play any style of music it seems.
the Tone ......... I love the guitar, ribs, back and mahogany neck, for his hot round they issue.
Sounds like mine and I love its sound inspires me to play, I really love this sound
Now the sound is a matter of taste for everyone.


J 'had a vintage Gibson southern jumbo thrue that I had to separate myself ...
it was less perfect than this one
but she had a tone that made me melt completely.
for a few days and after a few weeks of testing and research to find a guitar.
I tried Martin, but basically I wanted to find a Gibson J 45.
I met this 45 J Custom Shop 1960 black beautiful and it was immediately "TILT"
as if we fell in love at first sight :)
this is how it goes when buying a guitar j
love at first sight or anything ...
Well now she is super beautiful, she cracks me up and I'm super happy to play with.

It is very pleasant to use with a very comfortable guitar fretboard. Accustomed to the electric guitar player and occasional folk, I had no problem to adapt. The weight and size is perfect for me. I play pretty low because I added a belt fastener to body-neck junction.
Obviously, access to acute is limited, but this is not really the goal of this kind of guitars.


Well, this is where it gets interesting. Having a large budget enough to buy me a folk guitar, my choice was to Gibson because my musical tastes lead me to the country, folk, woodland sounds. I tried a lot of models and I must say that relatively few have really convinced me. The J-200 and slamming sounds too cold for the music that interests me, the Hummingbird is very good but a little brighter. I tried several models 'Southern Jumbo' but I do not feel.
This guitar, however, I was completely packed. When we play, it's a kind of natural compression instead below the song for me as a songwriter more than a musician, this is very important. Arpeggios and passing notes stand out beautifully from the rest. This really is the legendary Gibson sound I hear on my favorite records (especially Yankee Hotel Foxtrot Wilco for those who know). It's very hot, very flattering also must admit.
For the scene, I put a LR Baggs active makes his job very well and is able to reproduce the acoustic qualities of the guitar for a set amplified.


You'll understand that this is a guitar that has completely won me over and has quite changed my approach to music for a year and a half that I have. I started to do more acoustic sets and is the basis of all my songs. This is the tool with which I compose. For me, this is the perfect guitar / singer / songwriter. I can not imagine any other that transcends to the kind of music I make. And also, its Cherry Sunburst finish (which I find more than cherry caramel actually) is beautiful and what is also important, look, you have to have fun.
However, I put 9 because I think the price is really too high Gibson. I sold a Ramirez classical guitar at a good price that has allowed me to buy the J-45. I do not really have the utility of the classical guitar - with my very limited game really was not worthy - but I must say that for an equivalent price, Ramirez had really impressive finishes, compared to Gibson. If I had a smaller budget, I think I would have opted for a Martin or Guild who, I think, better guitars in the mid-range. Of course, these guitars would never filled me as the J-45 does, but the quality / price ratio is, I think, superior.
