Upgraded "Workhorse" that's a more comfortable fit for the modern player with quality L.R. Baggs electronics.

The J-45 is Gibson's best-selling acoustic of all time. Nicknamed The Workhorse and first introduced in 1942, this iconic acoustic has become the cornerstone of its round-shoulder, dreadnought line. World-renowned for its full, balanced expression, warm bass and excellent projection, the 2017 J-45 Standard Slope Shoulder Dreadnought has been refined to carry this legacy to new heights.

Other features on this upgraded version include a 2017 engraved truss rod cover, improved feel thanks to the softened fingerboard edge which makes it a more comfortable fit in the contour your hand, L.R. Baggs Element VTC pickup for ultimate plug-and-play ease, an enhanced finish thanks to finer grit sandpaper and polishing compounds used on its high gloss finish, and smoother hand rubbed and oiled fingerboard and bridges which will make them last longer and maximizes the wood's natural vibrancy.

Includes hardshell case.
