Gibson Acoustic 125th Anniversary J-45, Autumn Burst: SN10779003
First introduced in 1942 and nicknamed "The Workhorse", the iconic J-45 is Gibson's all time best selling acoustic - renowned for its full, balanced tone and excellent projection. Gibson's 125th Anniversary J-45 in Autumn Burst is no exception to this legacy, which it carries to new heights - commemorating 125 years of Gibson heritage, craftmanship, innovation, and authenticity, with a time-honoured vibe, and incredible dynamic range.
Handcrafted in Montana USA, this commemorative J-45 model does more than just celebrate Orville Gibson's legacy and vision. The Dreadnought body has been crafted with a select and aesthetically stunning Lutz Spruce top, while the Figured Mahogany back and sides help produce its organic timbre, and perfectly balanced tone. And, detailed with commemorative mother-of-pearl headstock and neck inlays, the rich Mahogany Slim Taper neck and Rosewood fingerboard's comfort make the guitar great for both chordal and fingerstyle playing. Finished to a standard and distinction only equalled by its resonance and vibrancy, the addition of a LR Baggs VTC pickup to this beautiful instrument means that its sensational timbre and tone can easily be amplified without compromise or loss of quality, making this limited edition Gibson J-45 a perfect choice for home, studio, or stage.
The quality, charisma, and sheer playability of this inspirational instrument is of course second to none; a worthy celebration to the heritage of Gibson Acoustics.
