The success of the Southern Jumbo and Hummingbird, which had been the top model of the J-45 in the same silhouette until the early 60's, made the cherry sunburst finish the standard for the J-45, and this S.J. boldly imitated the body shape and even the pickguard. The S.J. was relaunched as a completely new model, with not a trace of the original. The main difference between the S.J. and the Hummingbird is that the S.J. continues to be a Gibson medium scale, whereas most H.B.'s are long scale. Therefore, the sound tends to be more like a 45, with a loose but not overstressed feel. It is also interesting to note that the sunburst color continued to be used throughout the 60's as well.

Condition: There is a crack correction symmetrically centered under the top bridge. The bridge has been replaced with a fixed saddle, and each bolt of the bridge plate has been removed and filled with holes. There is evidence of intonation adjustment by filling and reopening the saddle slit in the new bridge. It is often commented that a fixed saddle makes the bridge sound more boxy, unlike an adjustable bridge. However, the adjustable sound, or rather the Late 60s sound, is still there. The sound quality peculiar to this period is not only created by the saddle, but also by a complex combination of various factors, such as the lightweight neck due to the narrow neck, the change in the size of the bridge plate, the size and shape of the bracing, and so on. There are traces of pickups that were installed, a battery box tape mark on the neck block, and the end pins have been converted to conversion pins. The nut has been replaced, the frets have been driven taller than the original, and there is partial wear in the low position. The pegs are generally 6 independent type as it is a higher model of J-45, but this one is original and plate type, which is in the category of Gibson Al-Al. The overall finish is very cool with the original atmosphere. This is a very cool guitar! This guitar is a very cool guitar. Comes with non-genuine hard case.

60年代初頭まではJ-45の上位モデルとして同シルエットで活躍したSouthern Jumbo、Hummingbirdの成功を受けてJ-45はチェリーサンバーストフィニッシュがスタンダードに、そして本機S.J.は大胆にもボディシェイプを模倣し、ピックガードまでも寄せて、もはや元の面影は微塵もなく全く新しいモデルとしてリスタートしました。 Hummingbirdとの大きな相違点は、ほとんどのH.B.がロングスケールであるのに対してS.J.は引き続きGibsonミディアムスケールである事です。 ですのでサウンドの傾向は、張り詰め過ぎないルーズさを持ち合わせた45寄りであると感じます。実測39mm強の超ナローネックグリップ。60年代もサンバーストカラーが途切れること無く継続されたモデルとしてその変遷を見て取れるのも興味深い点です。

コンディションは、Topブリッジ下にセンターを対称にクラック修正があります。 ブリッジをリプレイスし固定サドルに変更、ブリッジプレートの各ボルトも外して穴埋めされ本格的に改造されています。 新規ブリッジのサドルスリットを埋めて開け直してイントネーション調整した形跡があります。 固定サドルになると「アジャスタブルブリッジとは違いより箱鳴りするようになりました!」的なコメントをよく見かけますが、アジャスタブル・サウンドと言いますか、しっかりとLate 60s Sound!は変わらず健在。 この年代特有の音質を形成しているのはサドル部分だけではなく、ナローネックによるネック質量の軽量化、ブリッジプレートのサイズ変化、ブレーシングのサイズ、形状変化、などなど、各要因が複雑に折り重なって生まれ出るものだと再認識させられます。 ピックアップを取り付けてあった形跡があり、ネックブロックにバッテリーボックスのテープ跡、エンドピンがコンバージョンピンになっています。 ナット交換、オリジナルより背の高いフレットに打ち換え、ローポジションに部分減りがあります。 ペグは一般的にはJ-45の上位モデルという事で6個独立型ですが、こちらはオリジナルでプレートタイプです、Gibsonアルアルの範疇です。 全体のフィニッシュの質感はオリジナルの雰囲気のままが色濃く残っており非常にクールな一本です。 数あるヴィンテージが急激に高騰する中で、まだまだ据え置き狙い目!なギターです。 非純正ハードケース付属。
