wilco Wanted: Gibson J-45 or J-50 (34) RE: Wanted: Gibson J-45 or J-50 14 Apr 07

I don't know where in the world that you are, but I'll give you some "inside advice" on buying one. I have an acoustic music store in east Tennessee, and I see a lot of these.
   The highest prices are paid on sites like e-bay, where you have an international market. I've found that I can get at least twice my store price on e-bay. So, shop locally.
    Lots of these are around as seconds with finish flaws. They are good buys.
    Most of those i see are from the 1960's, and you'll pay retail $550.00 to $850.00 for a good guitar.
    Many of these have multi-piece tops, so learn how to check them for cracks.
