I have wanted my own J-45 since playing a friends back in the 1970's
The workhorse of Gibson Acoustic's. Finally pulled the trigger and purchased a J-45 Custom, After setting up the relief in the neck and action to my liking, it is so very nice to own this Guitar! Plays like butter and the sound is truly heaven sent, The voice of this Guitar blends with other instruments So well. The LR Baggs element pick up sounds Beautiful. The extra detail in the Custom is well worth the money! It looks as nice as it sounds! The inlays on the headstock and fingerboard and tailpiece jump out and make this Gibson a treasure. I have now purchased 3 Guitars from Sweetwater, I have never been disappointed with the Sales staff and extra care they take, making each item arrive on time, in one piece! Most important!!! First class care! and follow up to make sure that your happy with your purchase.
I never thought I would order a Guitar without playing it first, But Sweetwater has changed my opinion on that! being able to pick out the exact Guitar and then finding them so playable and ready to go.
If you want a Gibson Acoustic that will sound and play great, The J-45 will not disappoint !
