1942 Gibson J-45 Banner, All-Mahogany
SOLDAdd to Compare
You gotta love that vintage guitar smell–decades of good tunes under the hood mixed with a little blood, sweat, and tears. This 1942 Gibson Mahogany J-45 is a beast from yesterday! One of the loudest Banner J-45s we’ve had in the shop, this Gibson has the iconic Louisville Slugger neck and a killer woody tone that really speaks to its impressive age.
There’s more vintage mojo at work here than you can swing a baseball bat, or this Gibson Banner neck, at. By all appearances, the neck has never been reset, but there’s still lots of life left to the saddle height and it’s set up as a loud strummer right now. For such a big body, the weight is surprisingly light. The singer songwriter will love the volume and woody response, especially if you like to croon Townes Van Zandt or Steve Earl tunes. Outfitted with an L.R. Baggs Lyric pickup, this vintage Banner J works further miracles on stage, too!
