Classic J-45 dreadnought design with modern L.R. Baggs electronics.

The Gibson J-45 '50s Faded is a stunning recreation of 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 balanced expression, warm bass and excellent projection, the J-45 has been refined to carry this legacy to new heights. The Gibson J-45 '50s Faded delivers full-spectrum sound with incredible dynamic range and accentuates its vintage vibe with a lacquer finish. This dreadnought acoustic-electric is also equipped with a modern L.R. Baggs pickup and electronics package for studio and stage use.

A hardshell case is included.


  • Spruce top and mahogany body
  • Mahogany neck with Round profile
