This is a stunningly beautiful and collectible Gibson Custom Shop J-45 Granadillo Limited Edition. It is part of a very limited run that Gibson Custom Shop produced in 2015 and one of the most beautiful acoustics that I have ever seen and played.

I purchased this beauty new and played it only to test upon arrival. I have stored it carefully in a humidity controlled environment. This is a very rare, limited run, collectible and beautiful instrument. It features Trance Audio Amulet pickup which sounds incredible plugged in.

Granadillo is beautiful and considered a premium and limited tone wood. Luthiers often compare Granadillo to high end custom shop Indian rosewood. According to a Gibson forum, pairing granadillo with a Sitka spruce top will yield clear, ringing, long-sustaining notes. It is very limited in availability.

I have spoken to my friends in collector circles and these are highly prized and rare J-45's. There are very few in existence, and it is almost impossible to find one in new condition.

Gibson specs below:

- AA Premium Sitka Spruce top

- Granadillo back and sides

- Granadillo fingerboard and bridge

- Premium Trance Audio Amulet M pickup (tech details in last few images of listing)

- Gold Grover tuners

- Setup with Gibson PLEK system

This is an extremely well crafted and resonant instrument. In my opinion, Gibson Custom was building some of their best acoustics during this time period. The workmanship and attention to detail on this guitar is impressive. It plays and sounds fantastic and has zero playtime and zero fret wear.

The tone, resonance, weight balance and quality of the finish and fretboard are out of this world.

Includes original Gibson hard shell case and COA.

No trades.
