OVERVIEW

This Gibson was inspired by the holy grail of vintage acoustic instruments.

The allure and legend of the J-45 lives on in the new Gibson Custom Historic 1942 Banner J-45.

The new Gibson 1942 Banner J-45 includes a Thermally Aged Adirondack red spruce top hand-sprayed with a historic-style burst, hot hide glue top bracing for better tonal response and a bone nut and saddle.
