1985 The Gibson Limited Edition 90th Anniversay J-45 Celebrity Pro Setup LR Baggs Hard Case

Today, Lawman Guitars is Proudly Presenting…

An unbelievably beautiful 1985 Gibson 90th Anniversary J-45 Celebrity Guitar loaded with a LR Baggs I Beam Preamp system and with the Gibson Deluxe Hard Shell Case. Number 68 out of only 90 built for this special limited edition run!

This Professionally owned and played guitar is just beautiful. I couldn't believe how great it looks when we got it... Love The Gibson on the headstock with the fancy inlays. Check out that fancy nut. I have not seen one like that before... Truly a special guitar for a special guitarist. All we did is clean it up a little and put a new set of 12 guage Phosporus Bronze Strings on it. It plays great with really great low action. what a cannon. Its very very loud. Already opened up and ready to play. 33 years young is this guitar!!

The biggest difference of this Special Series J45 to the newer ones is the Fingerboard. This one is ebony. Most J45 models used Rosewood. I like Ebony much better…don’t you? They also went to Rosewood back and sides.. Check out the flame on the sides and back…even the back of the neck..Whoa!!

The guitar is not without some player dings from the years of working...One on the top as shown and just some buttons impressions on the back. No real backrash on this beauty... Its not perfect but its also 33 years old and looks great!

Check out the Gibson description we found for these RARE Celebrity Limited Series Guitars. They didn't make many of these! See pic 14.

This is one beautiful guitar. It plays and sounds as good as it looks. You will not be disappointed in this guitar.

The Guitar case is just as nice as the guitar. Hardly used at all. The  plush interior is tight to the guitar for no play in shipping…It fits the guitar perfectly and looks incredible. What a case!

The guitar is beautiful but used so its sold as-is no returns…however, I have been hand picking my customers guitars for close to 20 years now and they loved the instruments I found them. This incredible Gibson will certainly not be an exception.

Thanks for checking out our cool guitars.
