Gibson J45 Deluxe

Posted by Joe Morales on Thu, 04/25/02 - 21:30:58.

I own a Gibson J45 Deluxe which I purchased in 1982 and would like some information about the guitar.

How many were produced? (Other versions have round shoulders unlike the J45 Deluxe with square shoulders.

What would be the approximate value in excellent condition?

Hi, I own a 69 Square Shoulder J45 Deluxe. Now the bad news. For no good reason, other than snobbery, the square shoulder J45s are not considered as collectable as the old "Robert Johnson" round shape. The tone and playability are, in my humble opinion, directly comparable and even warmer in the bass and mid tone region. Your Guitar is probably only worth about $1000 even if mint. I would never sell mine as I have had it since new and its been through a lot with me! Regards, Ken
