Subject: RE: Info/Opinions RE: Gibson/Epiphone Guitars
I recently purchased (well traded for actually) a new J-45. I had one once and it is the one guitar I always regretted getting rid of...even over several old Martins. The J-45 is a guitar to be found in blues, country, bluegrass, folk, name it. Thw Workhorse is a fitting name. For whatever reason, the J-45's are consistently the easiest guitars I have ever played, allowing me to get shapes that only produce buzzes (clams, if you will) on other guitars. Of course, I will still hang on to my Collings, Guild, and Santa Cruz 12 string.
