Gibson Acoustic J-45 Studio, Walnut Burst

The J-45 is one of Gibson's most iconic and beloved acoustic guitars. Its rich and full tone has seduced a who's-who list of players since it was first introduced in 1942, and features on countless influential recordings.

This slimmer bodied model stays true to Gibson's original vision of an understated, no-frills workhorse, and combines traditional hand-scalloped X-bracing with a solid Sitka Spruce top, solid Walnut back and sides, Advanced Response Mahogany neck, and a Walnut 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 high quality update to a classic Gibson acoustic - one which must be of interest to any serious acoustic aficionado.

What Gibson say:

Turn heads with this unique J-45 Studio, hand-crafted without compromise in Bozeman, Montana from the finest all-solid woods. Featuring beautiful Walnut back and sides with a Sitka Spruce top. The slightly slimmer body depth allows for increased comfort underarm and the flatter fingerboard allows a finer playability. Finished with an LR Baggs™ VTC pickup for easy studio quality plug and play anywhere this is a hugely capable guitar offering real value!
