Comments about Gibson 2017 J-45 Progressive Slope Shoulder Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Not a bad guitar, played well sounded good. but for the money I would want a ebony fingerboard and not a synthetic material.
Out side of that I am satisfied with the fine sound and playability. not as loud as mymartin, but great in a different way. Of course I believe that Martin makes the best guitars and Gibson and Guild make excellent guitars. My favorites are the Martin D-35;D-28; the Guild D-55;D-40, and Gibson Dove and Buddy Holly J-45. The rest are junk!!! just kidding.

Service and delivery comments:

Great
