About This Listing

This is a 1946 Gibson SJ in excellent playing condition.  Clearly this is a player grade guitar with wear, dings, checking, repaired cracks, cleats inside and a handful of small patched areas.  The guitar has a gold script logo, no banner and no neck binding so that should make it specifically a '46.  Tuners were changed, an inlay appears replaced, guitar has been refretted, the neck has been reset, and it plays perfectly!  Intonation is perfect, no loose braces, bridge is glued down tight and the top is flat.  This one sounds incredible! 

Deep and dark tone, yet nice clarity, not a ton of top end though.  Finish is totally worn off of back of neck and it is quite literally one of the best feeling necks I have ever held. 100% honest wear. I would note the guitar has a light smell of pipe tobacco (got it that way) which is actually sort of pleasant and completes the vibe somehow, but I realize some folks may not be interested in that.  If you are looking for a collector grade guitar, this is not it.  If you are looking for the best playing and sounding SJ out there with some character, this might be the one.

Look at the photos carefully, they tell the story!  Ships in a newer Martin case.
