The Gibson J-45 acoustic guitar is the prince of a range of Gibson flattops now referred to as "Round-Shoulder Dreadnoughts." This elegant workhorse debuted in 1942, and became an instant favorite for its rich, warm, vocal tone and excellent projection. Today, this Gibson acoustic guitar is played by the likes of Bob Dylan, Ralph McTell, Billy Jo Armstrong, and Lucinda Williams. Carrying accurate touches such as a Slim-Taper neck profile, teardrop tortoise pickguard, 4-ply top binding, and banner headstock inlay (declaring "Only A Gibson Is Good Enough"), the Gibson J-45 True Vintage is an accurate representation of the acoustic guitar that became the standard of hard-gigging bluegrass, folk, and country artists of the 1940s and 1950s.

Each Gibson True Vintage J-45 acoustic guitar is built in Bozeman, Montana, with a top made from solid Adirondack red spruce, a rare and highly prized tonewood, and constructed with hot hide glue, just like back in the day.

Unearthly sounds

By Andrew McCall

from Tucson, AZ

Plainly put, when I heard this guitar I had to have it. It just sounds so, so, so good... and it also plays perfectly. The intonation is spot on. Lound and totally unearthly, it's a lifer and a keeper! Unfortunately the inside looks about 80% un-sanded, and a portion of the side of the fretboard was totally unsanded, which is a total bummer to look at. It was a nightmare going through Customer Service... I had to basically beg for replies to my queries. Anyway, this guitar could have been perfect and I thought I was paying a premium price for that kind of perfection, but it's a day away, and Gibson doesn't see it as being a huge issue to them.. go figure.

By Don Seay

from Mineral, Va.

Great sounding, strings are soft as butter, very light in weight. own Taylor 414 & Martin dc-16rgte aura, these will be set aside. some light swirl marks front and back in dark areas but have to be under certian light conditions to see. In touch with Gibson about this now. Owned a Gibson j 45 when 11 years (1958) it got destroyed and could not afford to replace untill now. Great to have the j 45 again. It has the sound I have been looking for, just had to save a long time to purchase. The Taylor and Martin are good also but everyone has their own playing style and sound they are looking for, and this is it for me. Beautiful sound and looks. My wife has been playing piano, keyboard and organ for 54 years and she says it is the best sounding guitar she has ever heard and boy does she know her notes, she lets me know when I miss a sharp or flat.

An American Guitar

By Francis

from Gig Harbor WA

I did lots of research before deciding on the Gibson TV J-45 to complete my collection of iconic American guitars. The action was perfect out of the box. I had to have my guitar tech lower a couple of frets to cure a rattle on the low E or I would rate it 5 stars. When I first opened the case I could smell the aroma of nitrocellulose. The instrument is much lighter than I thought it would be for a "workhorse" but it doesn't seem fragile at all. I also own a Martin, Taylor, Ovation, two Seagulls, La Patrie & Magnum Opus. Each unique in its own way. I have no second thoughts about spending this amount of money for the J-45 TV. Plus Chris at the Tacoma Guitar Center & Vincent at Gibson provided excellent customer service. The TV J-45 is a modern classic.
