Production Number: 4 There is some confusion as to whether this guitar is a standard J-45 or a "True Vintage" Model 2007 was the first year of production of J-45 True Vintage Guitars According to others who bought this year J-45 model, Models with an Orange Label J-45 and no "TV" with a Black HSC were early production J-45 TV models (they did not have "TV" on the Orange Label inside the sound hole) This guitar does not have the "TV" on the label It came with an original black HSC - Not a Tan one The Tan Gibson Hardshell case was not introduced until later. Here's info on this model. Question Got a J45 True Vintage tonight.
I believe it to be an early one as it came with the black case and blue interior. Can anyone confirm that my J45 is an early one?I have attached the sound hole label. My guitar does not have a SN stamped on the back of the headstock or anything else for that matter.
I believe the first J45 TVs were made in 2007 so yours would be one of the earliest to come out of Bozeman They did not have the serial number or Made in the USA on the back of the headstock but also they did not have the TV designation on the label. They started making the J45-TVs in 2007. I bought one used off of a guy a few years ago, and was myself concerned whether the model I had was in fact a "true vintage". It did not say so on the label on the inside.As it turns out, I called the Gibson factory with the serial number, and they confirmed it. Here are things they said you should look for. Look for an orange label on the inside, instead of a white one. My Label says J45 only.
However the orange label means "true vintage" Anyway, the label in your soundhole will say J45-TV or J45 only. Don't worry if it doesn't say J45-TV; just make sure it is an orange label.2 The headstock should not have the big metal grover tuning machines. It should have vintage style tuners with white buttons And the headstock will have the "banner logo" (only a Gibson is good enough).
So we think our J-45 guitar is an Early 2007 Gibson J-45 TV Model It has an orange label that says J-45 It has the "Only a Gibson is good enough" banner on the headstock There is nothing stamped (no serial number) on the back of the headstock The serial number is inked on the neck block inside the sound hole The machine tuners are vintage Klusons with white buttons Here's the Label and the inked serial numbers of Our Gibson J-45 TV.
