Gibson Acoustic J-45 Standard Left Handed, Vintage Sunburst

The iconic J-45 is without a doubt one of Gibson's most beloved and famous acoustic guitars. Its dark, rich, and full tone has intoxicated countless players since its introduction in 1942, and features on an innumerable range of famous recordings.

This model, which stays true to Gibson's original vision of an understated, no-frills workhorse, features traditional hand-scalloped X-bracing and a compound dovetail neck joint to combine the solid Sitka Spruce top, Mahogany back and sides, and Mahogany neck (with high-grade Rosewood fingerboard), into a high quality instrument; its excellent definition, classic tone, timbre, and unquestionable heritage paying tribute to the expert craftsmanship of Gibson's acoustic luthiers. Amplification without loss of quality is easily accessed via excellent LR Baggs VTC electronics.

Another glorious modern update to a classic Gibson instrument - one which must be of interest to any acoustic aficionado.

What Gibson say:

The J-45 is Gibson’s best-selling acoustic of all time. First introduced in 1942 and nicknamed "The Workhorse,” this iconic acoustic has become the cornerstone of its round-shoulder, dreadnought line. World renowned for its full, balanced expression, warm bass and excellent projection, the J-45 has been refined to carry this legacy to new heights. This model delivers a sound with incredible dynamic range, warm mids, and a tight punchy bass. And the Vintage Sunburst nitrocellulose finish looks fantastic to boot!
