Overview

The 2017 J-45 Custom is designed to please J-45 lovers who desire the enhanced tone and look of a rosewood guitar. Hand-built on the foundation of the world-famous Gibson J-45 Standard, the J-45 Custom incorporates all the charm and style with added custom enhancements from the artisans at the Gibson Acoustic Shop located in Bozeman, Montana.


The redesigned 2017 J-45 Custom offers supreme build materials and classic tonewood combinations. The select Sitka spruce top is bound in a multi-ply binding package, which includes a very distinctive Herringbone top trim. The sound hole also includes a multi-ply rosette highlighted with a beautiful abalone, ring for a truly custom feel. The slim taper neck profile on the mahogany neck is sleek and incredibly comfortable allowing you to play anywhere on the neck with ease. The peghead is bound and hand-inlaid with mother-of-pearl block Gibson logo and abalone crown inlay. The dense Richlite fingerboard is also marked with stunning abalone position markers. Gibson chose select rosewood for this J-45 Custom model, known for its rich, full sound and enhanced bass tonal qualities. Gibson’s famous Vintage Sunburst top finish is detailed with a firestripe teardrop-shaped pickguard.

The 2017 J-45 Custom is finished with classic Gibson appointments, gold Grover tuners, superior Tusq nut and saddle, Richlite bridge and fingerboard with abalone inlay, and an L.R. Baggs VTC pickup system, delivering the true tonal character of your Gibson Acoustic. This special guitar is designed and handcrafted in Bozeman, Montana. It includes a hardshell case and Gibson’s Limited Lifetime Warranty.

This guitar is awesome. This is the best sounding guitar I've ever played- it's also surprisingly light and the slim neck makes playing it easier.

      Comments about Gibson 2017 J-45 Custom Slope Shoulder Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      All I can say is WOW in regards to this guitar! I played many others in the guitar store that day and kept coming back to this one. The sound of the Rosewood that you get with the Custom is just amazing. Not a huge fan of gold tuners but hey are growing on me. Wish the lower strap pin was gold. A few things that I wish were different is the inlay in the bridge is so so and I wish the pick guard was one of the fancier shaped not just the simple teardrop...
