So I just bought a J45. My dream guitar and very expensive here in Brazil because of the taxes. I researched a lot about fakes and already own a legit gibby( a j-35 from 2016). Everything about the guitar seems legit and order. Documentation, fit, finish, etc etc. 99% sure it is a legit gibson and it sounds better than my j35 too. Except for one thing: The serial number and "made in USA" markings on the back of the headstock are barely legible. As if they were either not stamped in the wood with enough strenght or oversprayed/overfinished. Is this normal on this type of guitar? Seems almost like a blemish or finishing flaw to me. In my j35 the markings are quite legible and clear but then again the nitro finish is transparent. The j45 neck and back/sides are in a very dark/near black finish. I hope the picture shows it well enough. The serial number matches the factory checklist and checks out in the gibson serial code search. https://ibb.co/mYx6j6 I want to know if this is normal on these guitars or if I caught a badly finished one.
