Gibson's past meets the future in one single, stuning instrument! The J-45 Progressive certainly looks and sounds like a vintage Gibson, but was made with the modern player in mind. Combining the rich history of hand built acoustics with modern innovations the J-45 Progressive is outfitted with cutting-edge features to enhance all playing styles.
A handmade 'workhorse' guitar for the contemporary, progressive acoustic player.
2016 sees the introduction of a stunning 'Autumn Burst' finish, utilising the new sandpaper and polishing compounds for a smoother, high gloss premium finish. A traditional pairing of Sitka Spruce for the top and Mahogany body give the J-45 a delicate balance between top-end detail and mid-range warmth. With vintage construction techniques still prominent at Gibson, the use of hide glue on the J-45 Progressive dove tail neck offers great stability, reliability and aesthetic appeal.
New appointments for 2016 include the G-Force tuning system, making it easier than ever to switch between alternative tuning modes, and in terms of keeping your guitar tuned mid-set, this is a life saver! The LR Baggs Lyric pickup system allows you to rock up, plug in and carry that authentic acoustic tone wherever you go.
While the full-bodied dreadnought may not appeal to the smaller or delicate players, the J-45 is certainly one of the most versatile acoustic guitars on the market to date.
