Overview

The Gibson J-45 True Vintage Acoustic Gutiar boasts a historic aged look with popular vintage features. An Adirondack red spruce top, mahogany back and sides, and a Madagascar rosewood fingerboard and bridge are just some of the appointments that reflect the J-45 guitar's history.

From the blues to bluegrass to folk to pop and everything in-between, the Gibson J-45 True Vintage guitar delivers. The J-45 guitar's premium red spruce top and solid mahogany back and sides don't just look reassuringly authentic, they also produce unmatched mellow, full-bodied tone.

In the early 1940s, a Gibson sales rep lobbied hard for the development of a flattop dreadnought to compete with other popular acoustic guitars of the day. He so convincing that despite wartime demands on the factory, Gibson launched the J-45 guitar in 1942, and it quickly became a staple of the Gibson Acoustic line.

Dream J-45

By Nadia

from TX

Comments about Gibson J-45 True Vintage Acoustic Guitar:

This is the best guitar I've ever owned. I wasn't really looking to buy a guitar when I came across this Gibson, but I've recently played a number Martins and Taylors and I have to say this guitar is one of the most responsive guitars I've ever played. It can really 'bark' if you go at it - but can be just as wonderfully suited singing soft and sweet. The J45 Rosewood has that 'Gibson Tone' - which is so hard for me to describe. Definitely a full-round sound, punchy and dry, with even separation across the strings.Buy It NOW :)

A step above the rest

Comments about Gibson J-45 True Vintage Acoustic Guitar:

This J-45 truly stands out from the starndartd j-45s. While both guitars sound great. The True Vintage series guitar has finer craftmanship, a better, smoohter more finished feel and most inportantly, clearer more vibrant tone. I saved up for an extra 6 months and it was worth it for this guitar over the standard J-45. Play one and you'll understand.

Comments about Gibson J-45 True Vintage Acoustic Guitar:

I have recently been playing some Jorma Kaukonen peices, and he usually plays a j-50. well since gibson stopped making the j-50, this vintage j-45 is the next best guitar. it is ultra responsive. you can play both soft and mellow tunes, as well as punchy, vibrant ones. this guitar is very versatile. although i am more of a martin player, and do not like the sound of gibson acoustics much, this one really stands out. go pick one up.

The Workhouse Guitar

By Michael

from Tustin, CA

Comments about Gibson J-45 True Vintage Acoustic Guitar:

The Gibson J-45 has been one of Gibson's many great stalmarts.It is called the workhouse guitar because, you can play virtually anything on it, from acoustic blues to R&B. But this is also a "vintage" model. Making the sound of this guitar almost twice as great as the original J-45. With a red spruce top instead of the normal sitka spruce top of a J-45, the guitar really "glows." It still has the regular mahogany back and sides and rosewood fingerboard, and still has the round body shape. This guitar is a must have item, and if you are an avid vintage guitar collector, you're going to want to have it. Nuff said.
