The Gibson 2019 J-45 Standard Electro Acoustic Guitar in Vintage Sunburst offers the outstanding round-shoulder dreadnought in immaculate condition. Known affectionately as "The Workhorse", the J-45 Standard offers a resilient performance partner that will stick with you night after night through the most demanding of tour schedules. Each model is supplied with a Gibson hardshell case to keep it safe and secure on the road, as well as a Gibson Accessory Kit to keep it in pristine condition.
J-45 "The Workhorse"
The J-45 benefits from the round-shoulder dreadnought body profile, which combines a comfortable playing feel with steadfast rigidity. The curvaceous body rests sweetly during performances, providing easy access for the picking arm whether played in the seated or the standing position. The body is crafted using mahogany, which generates a robust midrange tonal foundation for a high energy output. The soundboard is built using Sitka spruce, which is reinforced using traditional hand-scalloped X-bracing to uphold stability whilst allowing the soundboard to resonate freely.
The body is finished in vintage sunburst, which is protected by a coating of nitrocellulose to allow it to age gracefully over time. Multi-ply binding around the top and single-ply binding around the back complements the finish beautifully. Multi-ply binding around the soundhole accompanies a tortoise pickguard to complete the classic styling of the top.
Solid neck design
Joined to the body via an elegant compound dovetail joint is a steady mahogany neck, which has been carved to the slimtaper profile to afford a sleek playing feel. The 24.75-inch scale length emphasises the richness of the midrange tonal energy, whilst promoting comfort as you perform. Married to the neck is a beautiful rosewood fingerboard, which is adorned with mother of pearl dot position inlays to guide your way. The fingerboard is polished with finishing oil to enhance the natural compounds of the wood to vastly improve its playability.
To cement its "Workhorse" label, the J-45 is equipped with a range of appointments that uphold consistency with precision across the board. The headstock is home to Grover Rotomatic tuners with kidney buttons, which uphold tuning integrity throughout the most demanding of performances. The body is home to a traditional belly up rosewood bridge, which anchors each string securely to optimise intonation and sustain.
L.R. Baggs VTC
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.
