The Gibson 2018 Limited Edition J-45 Custom Electro Acoustic in Rosewood Burst is a fantastic model that enhances the legendary round-shoulder "Workhorse". Adhering to the exceptional build quality we've come to expect from the team at Gibson, the 2018 J-45 Custom features premium appointments throughout to make this an outstanding model that would make an excellent addition to any guitarist's arsenal. Each model is supplied with a Gibson hardshell case to get you out and performing in security and style.

Beautiful tonewoods

The Gibson 2018 Ltd Ed J-45 Custom Electro Acoustic is shaped to the classic round-shoulder dreadnought profile, which is a comfortable model to work with whether seated or standing. The back and sides are built using rosewood, which creates a thumping mid-range energy with incredible depth. The Sitka spruce soundboard is reinforced using traditional hand-scalloped X-bracing to prevent unwanted buckling or warping over time. The spruce cuts through the mid to low-end energy to provide a crisp high end to round out the frequency range. The glorious rosewood burst finish is protected by a coating of nitrocellulose, which allows the wood to breathe and resonate to maximise tonal colour.

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 sumptuous richlite fingerboard, which is home to 20 frets that are decorated with abalone lucky charm position inlays to guide your way in stylish fashion. The combination of the 24.75-inch scale length and 12-inch fingerboard radius creates a comfortable playground for executing seamless technique on.

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 richlite 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.
