Now featuring a rosewood fingerboard, the Gibson J-45 Custom is a truly legendary acoustic guitar. Widely used by tons of players in many genres, notably blues and folk music, this electro acoustic is an excellent choice and has certainly deserves the status it has gained.
A Sitka spruce top combined with rosewood back & sides very much follows the path in which the J-45 Standard model led. Known for an extremely full tonal palette that stays well balanced, this model is without a doubt a well-known sound in the world of guitars. By slightly modifying the "X" style bracing used on other models, Gibson have produced a guitar with subtle compression, naturally produced thanks to the construction.
Neck and Hardware
A mahogany neck and rosewood fingerboard is a classic and possibly the definitive combination seen on guitars of this style. Providing the J45 Custom with fantastic playability thanks to the Comfort Contour profile, you can be sure this is a top-end model which will sound great.
A traditional dovetail joint connects the body and neck of this acoustic together securely and with great regard to keeping the tone as pure as possible. Grover Rotomatic tuners are another traditional touch present on the Gibson J-45 Custom. The 14:1 gear ratio allows for precise tuning and minimal variance to keep you in tune.
The L.R. Baggs Element system is an undersaddle pickup that has some seriously well considered features under it's belt. A discreet class A preamp ensures excellent output and the sound is certainly clear and true to the sound of the instrument.
