Gibson '50s J-45 Original Overview by GAK.

A new year, a new decade and a fantastic new Gibson Guitars product lineup that is sure to have something for everyone. After a very successful relaunch in 2019, the Gibson Montana range has drawn inspiration from it's roots while offering the very best in modern luthiery technques to deliver a true modern classic. Adding to the infamous Gibson Acoustic J-45 series you now have the Gibson '50s J-45 Original in Vintage Sunburst and Ebony, The Gibson '60s J-45 Original in Ebony and Wine Red plus the highly anticipated Gibson Slash J-45 in Vermillion Burst and November Burst. A few additions to the Jumbo lineup such as the Gibson J-185 Original, the Gibson SJ200 Original available in Antique Natural and Vintage Sunburst and the Custom Shop year specific Gibson 1957 SJ200 availbale in Antique Natural and Vintage Sunburst. Other notable additions are the Gibson Southern Jumbo Original, Gibson Hummingbird Original and the Gibson '50s LG-2 to name a few.

The new 50s J-45 Original model flaunts vintage-inspired detailing from the golden era of Gibson. Classic “Workhorse” materials include a Sitka spruce top and select mahogany back and sides. The multi-ply top and single-ply back binding are subtly antiqued making each instrument look just like a seasoned Gibson acoustic. Appointed with cream button tuners, a 50s-era tortoise pick guard, and upgraded with an LR Baggs® VTC pickup for the best and most natural-sounding tone when amplified.

J-45’s are hard to come by. Lovely looking guitar and played well. It’s just the cost of Gibson guitars - all high end products, for that matter. I love playing with alternate tuning and with capo. Really didn’t feel like doing all these adjustments with a guitar that I had to try but cost almost £2k. Just wasn’t sure. Will try several guitars. May eventually go back to this one. That’s the fun when buying an acoustic!!!
