Gibson's "Workhorse" gets premium vintage treatment and an exceptionally rare finish.
The vintage ebony finish on this J-45 is very rare and one of only two ever made.
The Gibson J-45 acoustic guitar is the prince of a range of Gibson flattops now referred to as "Round-Shoulder Dreadnoughts." This elegant workhorse debuted in 1942, and became an instant favorite for its rich, warm, vocal tone and excellent projection. Today, this Gibson acoustic guitar is played by the likes of Bob Dylan, Ralph McTell, Billy Jo Armstrong, and Lucinda Williams. Carrying accurate touches such as a soft-V neck profile, teardrop tortoise pickguard, 4-ply top binding, and banner headstock inlay (declaring "Only A Gibson Is Good Enough"), the Gibson J-45 True Vintage is an accurate representation of the acoustic guitar that became the standard of hard-gigging bluegrass, folk, and country artists of the 1940s and 1950s.
Each Gibson True Vintage J-45 acoustic guitar is built in Bozeman, Montana, with a top made from solid Adirondack red spruce, a rare and highly prized tonewood, and constructed with hot hide glue, just like back in the day.
Nitrocellulose lacquer finish for beauty and tone
Hand-fit, tapered dovetail joint to maximize sound vibration transfer from the neck to body
Radius top to maximize sound projection
Hand-scalloped top bracing for added strength and a light top
Handcrafted in Bozeman, MT
