Went thinking I knew roughly what I wanted, left with something completely different. Heath at the Northampton branch helped me pick out a guitar that was perfect for what I wanted. Knowledgeable, patient and helpful staff made for a pleasant buying experience. I would recommend to all!

Overview

Bearing a striking resemblance to the 1942 Gibson J-45, this iconic 'workhorse' has stood the test of time. Undergoing modest tweaks to its design over the years, including a comfortable cutaway on this model, the J-45 still feels and sounds 'vintage', yet remains versatile enough for modern playing techniques and adapts well to a wide range of playing styles.

The quintessential Gibson Acoustic.

Without compromising the big, bold jumbo dreadnought tone of the original sloped-shoulder J45, the Cutaway edition offers great upper fret access for more intricate melodic work. The body is constructed with a premium AA Sitka Spruce top and Mahogany Back & Side combo - sounds great, as it always has. The latest 2017 production run features some of Gibson's most cutting-edge techniques, including a rolled-edge fingerboard, radiused top bracing, tapered dovetail neck joint and genuine mother-of-pear inlays.

The Gibson J-45 comes equipped with an LR Baggs VTC electronic pickup system to convery every nuance of your playing. Responsive, detailed and transparent. Everything you need for live performance and studio recording.
