2020s Gibson "50s" J-45 Original, Sitka, Mahogany, Black Finish - USED

(USED) This is a recent reissue of a 1950s-style J-45, finished in shiny black.  It has a Sitka spruce top, mahogany back, sides and neck.  There is some nice figuring to the rosewood fingerboard, which has large pearl dot inlays.  

The nut width is 1 3/4" and the string spacing at the saddle 2 3/16", and the neck has a comfortable "C" profile, not nearly as chunky as '30s and '40s necks but definitely not dainty like '60s ones.  Short scale, of course.  

Condition is excellent with no dings, scratches, fret wear or structural issues.  The pickup system has been removed from this guitar and the opening filled with a Stew Mac "No Jack" which functions as a normal end pin.  Includes hard case.
