General Your general opinion of this product. I am a Martin enthusiast so I was skeptical about going with any other brand. I know Gibson, but when you are spending real $ on a quality guitar, it is hard to change your preferences. What caught my eye about this model was not only is it a classic J45; but with Koa back and sides, a Honeyburst Top, gold Grover tuners, it is a Custom Shop model and LIMITED TO JUST 75 MADE! Gibson, you now have my attention! So after a month and a half of looking at videos and doing research, I HAD to own this model.
Huge Disappointment in Gibson & AMS!

Your general opinion of this product. Gibson J45's are normally great guitars with a wonderful distinctive tone. The pictures of this one in the catalog with the wonderful antique sunburst and highly figured koa back and sides was simply too much to resist. The one I received was nothing like this. The tone is great but the color is much much lighter than the one in the add or on the website. The sunburst was a completely different color and the koa had no figuring at all. You know how great the hamburger looks on TV and then what you actually get looks nothing like that. Yep, it was like that. The neck had no relief at all and was low in the first position and extremely high at the 12th. Relieving the truss rod did not give a smooth arch relief over the neck. Only frets 1-3 showed relief with no relief at all in frets 4-14. I called to return the guitar but the service rep said that because of the price I would need to speak with a technician before I could return it. They promised they would have a technician call me back but no one ever did.
Incredible tone, stunning looks

Your general opinion of this product. The book matched koa is beyond stunning. With a 3-D-esque flame. The build quality is outstanding. The neck feels wonderful. The tone is stellar. Crisp with the clarity of maple yet with the breathy mid-range of mahogany when strummed. Great volume and projection. There is nothing to not like about this guitar. The price is amazing for a USA crafted guitar with beautiful koa wood.
