Comments about Gibson 2016 J-45 Vintage Slope Shoulder Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:
After reading a review in Acoustic Guitar magazine, and doing some research, I decided to trade in my Martin CEO-7(a very fine guitar) for the J-45. I was interested in a bigger sound, but something still responsive to fingerpicking(think Leo Kottke, Stefan Grossman, and Jorma Kaukonen). Mission accomplished. I did have to lower the action at the bridge by sanding down the saddle 1/32 in., and installed a set of Elixir Nanoweb light gauge strings(.12-.53). I like everything about this guitar.
