Overview

New for 2016, this J-45 Vintage model stays true to the original in every way, including the same round-shoulder dreadnought body design, an enhanced top made from Thermally Cured Adirondack red spruce which allows Gibson to replicate the aging process on the cellular level for legendary Gibson Acoustic vintage sound and appearance, custom vintage hide glue top bracing, and back and sides constructed from genuine mahogany.

Enhanced upgrades include period-correct style tuners for authenticity, and a finer grit sandpaper and polishing compounds have been used for the high gloss finish. This J-45 Vintage also has a premium setup utilizes state-of-the-art German-engineered Plek technology to create the finest playing surface possible. The J-45 is hand finished for the finest feel and playability, and its smoother hand rubbed and oiled fingerboard and bridges will help them last longer and maximizes the wood's natural vibrancy.

    Comments about Gibson 2016 J-45 Vintage Slope Shoulder Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

    After reading a review in Acoustic Guitar magazine, and doing some research, I decided to trade in my Martin CEO-7(a very fine guitar) for the J-45. I was interested in a bigger sound, but something still responsive to fingerpicking(think Leo Kottke, Stefan Grossman, and Jorma Kaukonen). Mission accomplished. I did have to lower the action at the bridge by sanding down the saddle 1/32 in., and installed a set of Elixir Nanoweb light gauge strings(.12-.53). I like everything about this guitar.
