The Gibson 2018 J-45 Mahogany Electro Acoustic Guitar in Antique Natural is a beautiful rendition of the guitar nicked "The Workhorse" due to its superior consistency. Since its release back in the early 1940s, the J-45 has become an icon utilised by guitarists and songwriters across virtually every genre, including Bob Dylan, Donovan, Jeff Tweedy, and Paul Weller. From country to rock, the brilliant output of the J-45 has helped to shape the musical landscape. Each model is supplied with a Gibson hardshell case, as well as a Gibson accessory kit to keep your pride and joy in pristine condition.

Classic tonewoods

The Gibson 2018 J-45 Mahogany is shaped to the classic round-shoulder dreadnought body profile that we've all come to know and love. By utilising an all-mahogany construction, this model establishes a rich tonal foundation that boasts an impressive warmth. The mellow character of the mahogany is delivered with an impressive sustain and sits beautifully next to a spruce top model or as a vocal accompaniment for a round overall sound. The top is reinforced using traditional, hand-scalloped X-bracing to prevent unwanted warping or buckling to preserve longevity. The gorgeous antique natural finish is protected by a slender yet resilient coating of nitrocellulose, which allows the wood to breathe and resonate to maximise tonal character.

Supportive neck design

Married to the body via a compound dovetail joint is a solid mahogany neck, which has been treated to the slimtaper profile for a comfortably smooth playing experience. Married to the neck is a heavenly rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 20 frets that are decorated with mother of pearl dot position inlays to guide your way in understated fashion. The combination of the 24.75-inch scale length and 12-inch fingerboard radius creates a comfortable playground that rewards seamless technique.

Gig-ready hardware

The headstock is home to Grover Rotomatic tuners, which dutifully uphold tuning integrity with absolute precision throughout the most enthusiastic of performances. The body is home to a traditional belly-up rosewood bridge, which creates a seamless connection between the strings and body for optimised intonation and sustain. Whether you're hitting the stage, laying down tracks in the studio, practising for an upcoming performance, jamming with friends, or simply kicking back at home, the J-45 remains true every time.

L.R. Baggs Element VTC Pickup System

Equipped with the award-winning L.R. Baggs Element VTC electronics' system, you can take to the stage in effortless style and plug directly into the amp or P.A. of your choosing, safe in the knowledge that the acoustic character of your guitar will be translated transparently.

The pre-attached Element pickup, and all-discrete endpin preamp are controlled using the soundhole-mounted volume and tone controls. The built-in low frequency crossover prevents any unwanted low-end grunt from over-powering your signal and allows the natural timbre of the J-45 to sing with the utmost clarity.
