Comments about Gibson 1960s J-45 VCS Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

This guitar is built just like my original J45 that my mom bought me in the 60's, which I still have. The LR Baggs system works great for recording or live performance. This guitar is very loud and has a nice mid range to it. Gibson did a great job in re-producing the iconic J45 that Donavon used through his career. Sorry Donavon, but I believe my mom got me my J45 before you acquired yours. Excellent taste we both have. I highly recommend this guitar.
