Default 2012 Gibson J-45 PureVoice A3 w/Adirondack... OFF THE MARKET

Hi folks, I have for sale a super nice and rare version of the J-45. Only 200 of these made back in 2012!



The top and braces are Red Spruce (Adirondack), the back and sides are Mahogany and, as you can see, it has a beautiful sunburst. Acoustically, this is as good a sounding J-45 as I have ever played (and I've played a good many!). I have made upgrades as well, including bone bridge pins, bone saddle and Waverly tuners. It's just an outstanding example of a classic J-45.



Additionally, this instrument features the Trance Audio A3 system, which is closely related to the Trance Audio Amulet (developed over a 10 year period with the help of Jackson Browne) and which has the most natural acoustic sound available in an amplified acoustic. It's just outstanding.



I really hate to get rid of it, but my needs are changing...



The guitar is in excellent condition... a few swirls here and there and a couple of minor indentations (not through the finish), but hard to photograph and not noticeable unless you look for them. There is a little ding on the headstock where it hangs... tried to get an adequate photo of it. It is through the finish but not significant.



Action is very smooth with 12th fret string height right at .110 on the low E and .080 on the high E. No buzzing, plays like a dream.



Street price on these new was $2999. Iím asking OFF THE MARKET via PayPal including shipping to the continental U.S. only.



Iím ohara58 on eBay. 100% positive feedback including a good many guitars. All AGF selling rules honored.



The only trades I might be interested in are the re-imagined D-28 or HD-28... or possibly a D-21 Special.



Thanks! Let me know if you have questions or need any additional photos. My email address is kohara at bellsouth dot net.



Edit: I added a (hopefully) better pic of the ding on the neck/headstock. Itís little cracks in the finish only that you can feel if you run your finger across it. Completely stable.

ugh. I sold one of these years ago and regret it ever since. I have been waiting for one to pup up and it figures it happens when I am broke!

Default 2012 Gibson J-45 PureVoice A3 w/Adirondack... RARE!

Had a couple of questions about the ďgirthĒ of the neck. Itís not chunky or a v... I get .806 at the first fret. It feels a lot like Martinís modified low oval. Hope that helps!

"Son" and are fortunate to own one of these, purchased new in 2012. Just a wonderful example of the J-45 sound.
