Widely regarded as one of the most versatile, consistent guitars in the acoustic sphere, the Gibson J45 Custom 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 Radiused top with scalloped bracing for projection and resonance. 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 Custom edition of the J45 features a Rosewood back and body, which complements Sitka with a rich, musical tone with ringing overtones that add complexity and sustain.
The Gibson J-45 Custom 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.
The J45 custom adds refined finishes that complement its fundamental design, including a new floral abalone and mother-of-pearl headstock inlay created by Gibson's master luthiers.
