When you listen to a Gibson J-45, you'll notice that it responds exactly to your style and technique--powerful one moment, soft and mellow the next. This guitar captures the essence of the classic '40s Gibson look and tone: beefy, solid mahogany neck, vintage slotted open bridge, the white button tuners, and the famed "Only a Gibson is Good Enough" banner on the peghead evoking the vintage feel, look, and tone of this very special instrument. Even the "triburst" finish is correct to late '40s specs. Triburst adds a hint of red to the sunburst finish, just the way Gibson did it right after WWII.
The solid mahogany back and sides are hand selected, as is the solid Sitka spruce top. The guitar is finished in an ultra-thin nitrocellulose finish that is not only beautiful, but actually enhances the tone of the instrument. The Gibson Icon '40s J-45 Banner Triburst is part of a series of guitars, specially built by Gibson in Bozeman, Montana by craftsmen, not machines. Don't wait long, quantities on this fine instrument are limited!
