Description

Details

The J-45 is well-known and adored acoustic model which has remained one of the best-selling Gibson guitars over the years. The 2017 J-45 Custom is built by the expert luthiers at the Gibson Acoustic factory in Montana, keeping that round shoulder dreadnought design accompanied by a selection of modern improvements to make this guitar even more appealing.

BODY

The 2017 J-45 Custom has been skilfully crafted by the professionals based at Gibson's Acoustic factory in Bozeman, Montana. With a radiused, AA-grade Sitka spruce body top with scalloped bracing, projection and acoustic delivery are second to none, sounding perfectly clear and resonant with each note.

A unique feature of the 2017 J-45 Custom is that its body back and sides are constructed entirely from rosewood. The rosewood and Sitka spruce partner eachother beautifully, offering an alluring appearance which is further complemented by a hand bound trim binding on the body top with extraordinary herringbone detail.

NECK

A single-piece mahogany neck is firmly secured to the body using hot hide glue via a compound dovetail joint. The neck is shaped to an incredibly comfortable Slim Taper profile, enhancing the feel of the neck in your hand. The neck is topped with a smooth, richlite fingerboard. Gibson have added small, decorative abalone diamond inlays to guide you from one fret to the next.

PICKUP SYSTEM

Gibson have employed an updated LR Baggs VTC pickup to amplify the 2017 J-45 Custom Rosewood guitar. This built-in pickup system means you can plug in and play anywhere, making any practice session or live performance a doddle. Volume and tone controls can be easily located beneath the soundhole, allowing you to tweak your sound accordingly. The positioning of the LR Baggs VTC pickup is the reason it can accurately capture the soundwaves directly from the guitar soundboard and deliver a resonant acoustic translation.

HARDWARE AND FINISH

The headstock is beautifully decorated with cream binding and kitted out high-calibre with Gold Grover Rotomatics tuning keys. The tuners are set to a reliable 14:01 ratio, which, alongside the Tusq nut and saddle ensure consistently accurate tuning and ideal string spacing.

The body has a richlite bridge, enhancing sustain and resonance. A firestripe pickguard adds a vintage aesthetic to the body, a prime feature that perfectly suits the Vintage Sunburst colour of the guitar. Gibson include a black hardshell case to protect this workhorse against damage, and a Gibson Acoustic Owner's Manual is also supplied.
