With a history more than a century in the making, Gibson has been one of the world's top luthiers for decades. After cutting their teeth on mandolins and classical guitars from their founding in 1902, they became more and more well-known. When the 1930s rolled around, Gibson was making the flat-topped acoustic guitars that have been one of their cornerstones ever since. Of course, not all guitars are created equal, and the Gibson signature model acoustic guitars you'll find in this section definitely deserve special attention.
The recipe for a signature guitar is simple enough: just take one excellent luthier, like Gibson, and bring in the expertise of a passionate guitarist to outline exactly what it takes to build an outstanding instrument. The result would be something like the Gibson Brad Paisley Signature J-45 Acoustic-Electric Guitar. This instrument draws on roots going all the way back to the classic pre-war Gibsons, but it's got the modern playability needed for country guitar picking as well as edgy electric twang.
Nothing but solid Adirondack Red Spruce is good enough to meet Brad's standards for a guitar top, so that's exactly what you'll find in his signature J-45. And thanks to the Fishman Ellipse Aura electronics, this guitar is more than capable of driving a meaty acoustic guitar amp to play even the biggest venues. If you're looking for an acoustic axe that can handle any genre, it's a fantastic choice.
Of course, the Brad Paisley J-45 is just one example of Gibson's signature model acoustic guitars. Prefer something a bit more classic? Take the Gibson Donovan 1965 J-45 out for a spin. It's been at the top of guitarists' wishlists ever since it first came out. The bottom line is that, when you need an acoustic that's built to perform and ready to take on world-class shows, a Gibson signature model will always rise to the challenge.
