You are looking at a 1948 National 1155/ Gibson J-45.

This model was offered from 1948-1961. In '48 into '49, they were completely made by Gibson. After that, National would bolt-on their necks (with plastic heal caps) on to Gibson jumbo bodies.

This guitar came to me in terrible condition, but I knew she was worth restoring. I will describe, to the best of my ability, the work that was done. Please ask any and all questions that you may have in case I miss anything.

New stewmac retro tuners that match the originals exactly. New tusq nut and saddle. Complete re-fret, truss rod installed. New top bracing. Sides and neck refinished. Bridge re-glued, cracks sealed,and neck set. Fretboard oiled.

Finish on top and back is original, pickguard is original.

This guitar is a player. It really, really sings. Spruce top, mahogany back and sides. Big baseball bat neck, 1 11/16 nut width. Short scale.Low action, excellent playability up and down the neck. Intonation is perfect. Truly a great playing and sounding guitar. If you've ever wanted a 1940's J-45, this may be for you. Comes with new hard shell case that fits like a glove.

Please review all picturesand ask any questions. No Returns. Continental U.S. only. I accept paypal only. $60 flat FedEx shipping. Will be professionally packaged and shipped fast.

Thanks.
