Widely regarded as one of the most versatile, consistent guitars in the acoustic sphere, the Gibson J45 Standard has adorned the collection of countless songwriters, live performers and studio musicians around the world.
Big projection, full-bodied tone and AA-aesthetics to die for - The Gibson J-45 has it all in one affordable package.
An AA-grade Sitka spruce top is light and stiff, which makes it respond reliably well with changes in environment or humidity, especially with the X-Bracing employed on this model. Not only does it look superb at face value, its lighter weight helps translate the players's fingerpicking and strumming into clear, well-defined acoustic tone with a broad dynamic range, suitable for almost every playing style. The solid mahogany body offers a naturally rich, warm low mid-range presence which rhythmic strummers will appreciate.
The Gibson J-45 is equipped with an LR Baggs VTC electronic pickup system, with an under-saddle design and internal body sensors, which picks up the guitar’s most delicate nuances. Tracking the motion of the top rather than a direct string attack suppresses “quack” caused by compression and unlocks the J-45's unrivaled dynamic range.
For 2016, Gibson have married modern upgrades (including a new 2016 engraved truss rod cover, softened fingerboard edging, enhanced polished finish, and a premium factory set-up for the finest playing action) with the classic design and Vintage Sunburst Finish of the original J-45. The resulting guitar caters to a wide range of playing styles and guitarists needs, which has made this one of the best selling Acoustic Guitars of all time.
