A classic reborn with special Triple Burst nitrocellulose lacquer finish and Granadilla fingerboard and bridge.
Since 1942, the Gibson J-45 has been on more stages and in more recording studios than any guitar in history, hence it’s nickname “The Workhorse”. Features true to the original include solid genuine mahogany back, sides, and neck, solid Sitka spruce top, scalloped spruce bracing, and a traditional compound dovetail neck to body joint attached with old world hide glue.
The 24-¾” scale length works in concert with the slope shouldered spruce and mahogany body and neck to produce a balanced Low/Mid/High tonality that works for all genres of music requiring a steel string acoustic guitar. Added unique features include a distinctive granadilla fingerboard and bridge, Precision Schaller vintage copper tuning machines, and a rare custom hand-applied Triple Burst nitrocellulose lacquer finish.
Only 65 units will be produced for North America. Proudly handmade in Bozeman, Montana, the J-45 Deluxe arrives in a plush lined Gibson hardshell case with a Limited Lifetime Warranty.
