The Gibson 2018 J-45 Walnut AG Electro Acoustic Guitar in Antique Natural offers a classic round-shoulder cutaway with a forward-thinking slimline body to create a comfortable performer. The same high-quality Gibson craftsmanship has been employed across the board. Each model is supplied with a Gibson hardshell case to keep your guitar in pristine condition at home or on the road.
The Gibson J-45 is a fantastic model for those who like a guitar that delivers a punchy energy across a wide dynamic range. The 2018 AG is built using walnut, a hardy tonewood that is noted for its generous mid-range warmth that permeates every note. The thinline body depth pairs beautifully with the single-cutaway to maximise playing comfort.
Matched with the sides is a Sitka spruce top, which utilises its naturally resonant character to project tones with the utmost grace. The top is reinforced using traditional hand-scalloped X-bracing to prevent unwanted warping over time. The antique natural finish is protected by a resilient coating of nitrocellulose, whilst the unique Avant Garde pickguard and multi-ply body binding accentuate the finish.
Sturdy neck design
Married to the body via a compound dovetail neck-to-body joint is a supple two-piece maple neck, which has been shaped to the advanced response profile for a slimmer and faster feel in the hand. Married to the neck is a sumptuous walnut fingerboard, which is home to 20 frets that are adorned with mother of pearl dot position inlays to guide your way in style. The fingerboard is polished with finishing oil to enhance the natural compounds of the wood, thus giving it a lasting feel of elegance.
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 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.
The headstock is home to Mini Grover tuners, which work dutifully to uphold tuning integrity throughout the most energetic of performances. The body is home to a rounded rectangle walnut bridge, which anchors each string securely to optimise intonation and sustain.
