The Gibson 2018 J-45 Standard EC Electro Acoustic Guitar in Vintage Sunburst finish is a decadent model that all players will love. Since its introduction in 1942, the J-45 has earned its nickname "The Workhorse" thanks to its stable playability. The J-45 is beloved thanks to its full, balanced tone infused with warm bass and excellent ability to project with the utmost grace. The Standard EC features a modern cutaway to make it even more playable than ever.
Superb Gibson construction
The 2018 J-45 Standard EC is shaped to the round-shoulder dreadnought body profile, which gives the guitar a solid feel coupled with a comfortable playability. The body back and sides are crafted using mahogany, which works well with the body to produce a sumptuous warmth that permeates every note.
Partnered with the mahogany is a Sitka spruce top, which has been treated to a vintage sunburst finish that is protected by a resilient coating of nitrocellulose. The Sitka spruce is a fantastic soundboard, and projects tones with outstanding clarity. The top is reinforced using traditional, hand-scalloped X-bracing to prevent unwanted buckling or warping over time. Thanks to the effortless projection of the spruce, the J-45 boasts a wide dynamic range that make it fantastic to perform with.
Durable mahogany neck
A slim taper single-piece mahogany neck has been fitted to the body using an exquisite compound dovetail neck-to-body joint. The result is a sturdy and reliable feel that holds up well during energetic performances. The slim taper profile provides a comfortable feel in the hand, allowing you to glide along with effortless grace. Paired with the neck is a beautiful rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 20 frets that are adorned with mother-of-pearl dot position inlays.
L.R. Baggs Elements VTC Pickup System
The Gibson 2018 J-45 is equipped with the L.R. Baggs VTC pickup system, which includes a pre-attached Element pickup, and all-discrete endpin preamp. The system translates the acoustic timbre of the J-45 beautifully, capturing the subtle nuances of your performance when played plugged in to an amp.
The soundhole-mounted volume and tone controls allow you to control your output discreetly, whilst 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.
Fitted to the headstock you'll find Grover Rotomatic tuning machines, which uphold tuning integrity with absolute precision. The black corian nut at the top of the neck maintains string spacing and tension, whilst the traditional belly-up rosewood bridge creates a seamless connection between strings and body.
The Gibson 2018 J-45 Standard EC Electro Acoustic Guitar in Vintage Sunburst is supplied with a Gibson hardshell case to keep your pride and joy safe from harm at home or on the go.
