Regarded by many players and fans alike as the savior of genuine country guitar picking and known for his fiery electric twang, Brad Paisley is also an unparalleled singer and songwriter whose acoustic moments are every bit as powerful as his amped-up excursions.

In celebration of his dedication to the acoustic guitar, and his achievements in his field, Gibson presents the Brad Paisley signature guitar, a custom-appointed acoustic guitar from the luthiers of Bozeman, Montana. Constructed in the image of the beloved J-45 "round-shouldered" dreadnought with Paisley's own preferences for a prized solid Adirondack Red Spruce top, solid mahogany back and sides, and one-piece custom mahogany neck with "modified V" profile and 24 3/4"-scale rosewood fingerboard, it's a sultry Gibson guitar on par with the best pre-War Gibson flat-tops, yet equipped as a top-flight performance machine for today's professional.

A Rare Acoustic Guitar for an Uncompromising Artist

Details such as original 1942-spec scalloped red spruce & hide glue X-bracing, a Fishman Ellipse Aura pickup and preamp system and a bone nut and saddle all work to ensure rich, resonant tones, either unplugged or fully amplified, while the Brad Paisley guitar's hand-sprayed nitrocellulose Cherry Sunburst finish, multi-ply top binding, double-ring rosette, tortoiseshell pickguard with paisley engraving, mother-of-pearl dot inlays with mother-of-pearl paisleys at the 12th fret, and "Brad Paisley" signature engraved truss-rod cover all declare that this is a rare and exclusive instrument. Only 300 Brad Paisley signature guitars will be produced by Gibson, and each one comes with a formfitting hardshell case with plush blue lining, an owner's manual, Gibson's Gold Warranty, label personally signed by Brad Paisley, and a Certificate of Authenticity.

Body and Finish

This big-bodied, round-shouldered dreadnought guitar is built in the image of the legendary 1942 J-45 Legend Model, from the classic tonewood combination of solid Adirondack red spruce top and solid mahogany back and sides. Its top is supported by original 1942-spec red spruce scalloped X-bracing bonded by hide glue, a structure and design known for its superior strength and resonance. To top it off, a hand-sprayed nitrocellulose lacquer custom early 1960's style cherry sunburst finish, elegant multi-ply top binding and single-ply back binding, and a tortoiseshell pickguard with paisley engraving ensure the Gibson Brad Paisley guitar looks just as sublime as it sounds.

Neck and Headstock

The Gibson guitar's neck and headstock are custom made much in the tradition of the original J-45, with the 24 3/4" scale length as featured on several classic Gibson flat-tops. Carved from a single piece of quarter-sawn mahogany to Brad Paisley's preferred "modified V" profile, and topped with a rosewood fingerboard, the design incorporates Gibson's lauded 17-degree back-angled headstock, which contributes greatly to the acoustic-electric guitar's resonance and sustain, and the narrower dimensions of 1.625" at the nut, as specified by Paisley himself. The headstock is adorned with the pre-War "Gibson" logo with the "banner" emblem across the center of its face.


The Gibson Brad Paisley guitar carries an up-market hardware set, including custom hand-made vintage-style nickel tuners with cream buttons, and belly-up rosewood bridge with traditional bridge pins and bone saddle.


The Brad Paisley guitar comes protected with a Gibson hardshell case with blue plush lining and includes an owner's manual and Gold Warranty.

from Heaven with this guitar

Comments about Gibson Brad Paisley Signature J-45 Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

This guitar is amazing. I have been playing guitar for 30 years and this is by far the best guitar I have ever touched. This is a beautifully hand crafted guitar. The sound can roar or can whisper to you. The tone is round yet punchy and beautiful. This is the guitar I will never let go. Why waste your time reading reviews when you can buy this guitar?
