Its an exceptional sounding guitar as well with the powerful yet sweet tone you only get from these Banner era guitars
The sound is very full, rich and well balanced. I am 53 years old now. We all love the Vintage Gibson J-45's. But the J-45 really only have that low E thump that gets out attention. The remaining 5 strings are not balanced with the thumping low E. You play a Southern Jumbo or Country Western Gibson, you will see these are the "Mother Load" Sweet Spot we ALL look for in a instrument :)
It never had a neck reset nor needs one. I had it looked at by a professional Luthier. I am not a professional Gibson guy or seller. Just Fender I know everything
I mean the tuners never been off the guitar and it's 71+ years old. If it don't need a neck reset now and this old, 99.9999% it never will.
These War Time guitar's are a part of History. The Kalamazoo girls most likely built this as the men were off to war. No truss rod as metal was scare and needed for war materials.
BIG Fat Neck Profile. Has some capo marks on back in cowboy cord area, I don't feel them at all.. Just used wear in my book. Capo's sucked back then.
