The Workhorse in a limited run of 75 with a special ebony finish and L.R. Baggs electronics.
Since 1942, the Gibson J-45 dreadnought has been on more stages and in more recording studios than any guitar in history, hence its nickname "The Workhorse."
It features true-to-the-original features like solid genuine mahogany back, sides, and neck, solid Sitka spruce top, scalloped spruce bracing, and a traditional compound dovetail neck to body joint attached with old-world hide glue for full, balanced expression, warm bass and excellent projection. The 24-¾" scale length works in concert with the slope shouldered spruce and mahogany body and neck to produce a balanced Low/Mid/High tonality that works for all genres of music requiring a steel string acoustic guitar.
The sound of a J-45 was described to Gibson by one of the greats as "that great old tone that is in my head forever. Imagine two tape, vinyl, pre-digital, pure balanced tone. That would be the sound of Gibson's J-45." This special edition comes in a rare, hand-applied ebony nitrocellulose lacquer finish which will allow the tone to mature with age, gold Grover Rotomatic tuners and an L.R. Baggs Element VTC pickup.
Comes in a plush-lined Gibson hardshell case with a Limited Lifetime Warranty.
