This guitar so<nds heavenly and has been loved and admired since it was given to me in 1977.

Gibson headstock serial # 370812
Straight and tight as a tick. 
Old tuners in box
Headstock never cracked, truss rod excellent
This is a great 55 y/o J-45.  Easy to play and sounds beautiful
Just restrung, guitar & fret board  are in excellent condition.   Kit, musican/luthier, at Music By the Bay, Wareham MA., new tuners, new Stings, old ones inbox, fret board refreshed this guitar  Physically, someone bad tripped the deck with something pre 1977.  It's purely a character accoutrement now.  I was gifted this guitar by Alto Reed, The Silver Bullet Band, when LIVE BULLET went platinum in 1977.  I had introduced Alto to his wife at Seger show in Tampa.  It was the night Patti Smith, opened, and slipped off the stage and broke her neck. Worst thing I ever saw at a show,  she of course survived thankfully. This J-45 was his thank you.  Alto was a mensh-n-a-half person.


I'm George Luthin, I started working for Capitol on 56th &6th in 1973, then Polygram, and MCA/UNI through 2010.  This guitar went everywhere with me.  The pictured bands?  They all loved this guitar.  Glen had 2 of them.

Please, ask me anything.

Thanks for looking
