This classic Gibson workhouse has vintage-inspired detailing and an LR Baggs VTC pickup.

The Gibson ’50s J-45 Original flaunts vintage-inspired detailing from the golden era of Gibson. Classic “Workhorse” materials include a Sitka spruce top and select mahogany back and sides. The multi-ply top and single-ply back binding are subtly antiqued, making each instrument look just like a seasoned Gibson acoustic guitar. It’s appointed with cream button tuners, a ’50s-era tortoise pickguard and upgraded with an L.R. Baggs VTC pickup for the best and most natural-sounding tone when amplified.


  • Sitka spruce top, mahogany back and sides
  • Round mahogany neck, rosewood fingerboard
  • LR Baggs VTC pickup
  • Grover Strap tuning machines with cream buttons, tradtional belly up bridge, nickel plating
