    New J-45 Studio Rosewood. What can I say, I'm a sucker for a Gibson Slope Shoulder.

    This is not mine, mine is getting a setup right now.

    Very nice!
    Congratulations on a fine guitar and the decision to have it set up to your taste.
    My J-45 drove me nuts until I had a pro setup done, now it is amazing.

    Congrats and enjoy the heck out it! I have been playing slope shoulder Gibsons for a very long time and have been happily settled in with a 1942 J50 for well over a decade. Never tried a J45 with a rosewood body never mind one that was slimmed down though. I do find it interesting that recently Gibson has gone with the Martin-esque flatter board radius on the Studio and Modern lines.

    It feels only slightly different than my regular J45, but it still has the thump going on you expect from a Gibson.

    For decades I have heard people talk about the Gibson "thump". Opinions as to what it is do vary. To my ears it is the low E with a good dose of mids included in the mix. But then again nobody's ears hear a guitar exactly the same way.
