Talking NGD - G-45

Well Thursday anyway, but I've got insomnia, soooo.

Picked up a Gibson G-45 Thursday at Guitar Center.
I was a little worried I wouldn't like the sound port, but I'm already used to it, sounds great to this beginner. My son likes it too. He's gonna get one too.

Congrats! This model sounds great, and is so comfortable to play. Slope shoulder. Slightly narrow body. Short scale. Play with health!

Insomnia, great time to pick up your new G-45. What do you mean when you mentioned "I was a little worried I wouldn't like the soundhole"? Do you mean the tone?

The new G series have sound holes at the side of the guitar.

Someone corrected me, I meant sound port on the side.

Wife and kids were asleep hard to play quietly.

Gibson knows that slopes are addictive. Play happy!
