The Gibson J-45 True Vintage Acoustic Guitar in Vintage Sunburst gives you the opportunity to own one of Gibson’s most popular acoustics, “The Workhorse”. Adhering closely to the same build quality, materials, and looks as the original 1942 model, this guitar offers the same simple, rock solid construction, tone, and performance.

Solid Round-Shoulder Dreadnought Body

The Gibson J-45 True Vintage Acoustic Guitar stays true to its roots, utilising the same round-shoulder dreadnought body design with a top crafted from Adirondack red spruce and back and sides of pattern-grade mahogany from Honduras. The top also benefits from a custom vintage bracing that matches the original. This has been hand-scalloped to enhance the instrument’s projection, and bonded with hot hide glue for exceptional strength.

With all this in place, the Gibson J-45 True Vintage offers the very same full, balanced expression, warm bass, and excellent projection that has established this model as a firm favourite amongst professionals. The finishing touches to the Gibson J-45 are simple and unfussy but add an air of elegance, with a 4-ply top binding and single-ring, three-ply rosette binding.

Solid Mahogany Neck

Continuing the accurate, vintage appointments, the body of the Gibson J-45 True Vintage Acoustic Guitar is joined by a mahogany neck shaped to a soft-V profile. Topping this is a rosewood fingerboard, the material of which has been hand-selected to ensure stability and balance, which translates into clarity and bite. The fingerboard has also been treated to a traditional binding, whilst genuine mother-of-pearl classic dot position inlays guide your way along in style.

Hardworking Hardware

The Gibson J-45 True Vintage Guitar’s headstock is outfitted with a set of Gotoh nickel cream button tuners that boast an impressive 15:1 gear ratio. These beauties deliver precision tuning, and with all moving parts cut for exact meshing, the chance for slippage is eliminated, while special lubricant has been applied to the gearbox, for smooth and accurate tuning adjustment.

The traditional belly up rosewood bridge works perfectly alongside the bone saddle to guarantee optimum intonation and string tension. As well as this, the bridge complements the sophisticated vintage sunburst finish, which is protected by a hand-sprayed nitrocellulose lacquer. As you can see, everything is finished to the highest level of quality.

Period-Correct True Vintage Hardshell Case

The Gibson J-45 True Vintage Acoustic Guitar comes with its own period-correct True Vintage hardshell case, which has a brown Tolex exterior and an eye-catching pink fabric interior. As well as this superb case, each model also comes with an owner’s manual and Gibson gold warranty.
