Update: I first had quotation marks around the word "Brazilian" because I have no way to verify how to determine whether it is, and others have called similar instruments Brazilian, but Reverb will not publish the quotation marks for some reason (WTF). Must be a new rule/feature.

Then I changed it to Brazilian? with a question mark, but Reverb similarly will not publish the question mark (W T F ??!!).

So I am removing the word Brazilian. I do not know what kind of Rosewood this is nor do I care at this point. It's a superb Japanese-made J-45 killer, that had one owner. Yeah, there are a lot of dings and such on the top (as stated) but it is 100% structurally sound and needs nothing (other than the dust removed LOL).

Selling for my buddy. Lots of playwear on the top, but a ridiculously open and toneful instrument.

This thing sounds great and plays really well. Disclaimer: I don't know what kind of rosewood it is, but it sounds BIG.

Never had a neck-heel strap button, so it was couch guitar.

My buddy bought it new in 1991! I love J-45s and this thing smokes them. Hate to say it but you know what they say - Japanese guitars are like Japanese cars (they're better).

Surprisingly not much fret wear, and a perfect neck angle.

Original case. Holler with questions.
