Gibson Acoustic J-45 Standard, Vintage Sunburst

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

This model stays true to Gibson's original vision of an understated, no-frills workhorse, and combines traditional hand-scalloped X-bracing and a compound dovetail neck joint with a solid Sitka Spruce top, Mahogany back and sides, Mahogany neck, and a high-grade Rosewood fingerboard to produce an instrument of superb quality; excellent definition, classic tone, timbre, and unsurpassed charisma paying tribute to the expert craftsmanship of Gibson's acoustic luthiers. Amplification is easily accessed via excellent LR Baggs VTC electronics.

Another fantastic update to a classic Gibson guitar - one which must be of interest to any serious 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!
