You can never have too much of a good thing and the 2017 J-45 Slope Shoulder is just that. When you play this J-45, you’ll notice that it responds exactly to the player’s style and technique – powerful one moment, and soft and mellow the next. This characteristic of round shoulder guitars is certainly one of the main attractions that players have to Gibson's famous J-45 model, affectionately called “The Workhorse”.

Comments about Gibson 2017 J-45 Slope Shoulder Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:
Had not owned a Gibson for many years. Thought the J-45 with a cutaway was a great idea, so I picked one off the GC wall. Wasn't looking to buy, but that belly rumbling tone - you know the rest... Next thing I know, that one followed me home. I had the action lowered a tad and dropped elixir nanoweb lights for a true ringer. The fit and finish was flawless. The slim neck combined with the 1.725 nut width equals less hand fatigue for me. At 52, I had forgotten how comfortable the shorter scale length was for the intricate stuff. Not louder than the 25.4 scale, just easier to transition and bend. A go-to guitar that excels at many styles with upper register access. The complexity of overtones and sustain this thing delivers is remarkable right out of the box. It can be both sweet and mean whatever your mood. Not sure of Gibson's consistency, but have heard they are producing killers lately in Montana. This workhorse is a definite keeper. Thank you Mr. Gibson.
