The Gibson 2019 J-45 Studio Electro Acoustic Guitar in Antique Natural is an understated model that boasts solid construction and phenomenal tonal depth. Whether you're simply practising at home, hitting the studio or taking to the stage, the J-45 studio is a professional-grade model that gets the job done in style. Each one is supplied with a Gibson hardshell case to keep your pride and joy safe from knocks on the road, as well as a Gibson accessory kit to keep your guitar in pristine condition.
The Gibson 2019 J-45 Studio is built to the classic J-45 round-shoulder dreadnought body shape, which is one of the most popular of all Gibson's acoustic guitar designs, favoured by musicians including Donovan, Bob Dylan, John Lennon, and many more. The narrower upper bout extends to a larger lower bout to create a resounding energy with an articulate clarity. The body is crafted using walnut to generate the stirring midrange energy, which is paired with a crisp sounding Sitka spruce top. The soundboard is reinforced using traditional hand-scalloped X-bracing to resist buckling or warping over time without compromising its ability to resonate and project tones with gusto.
The body is finished in an elegant antique natural that exhibits the natural grain of the wood beautifully. Gibson have applied a protective coating of nitrocellulose to preserve the woods for as long as possible whilst allowing the woods to breathe and resonate. Multi-ply binding around the top single-ply binding around the back to complement the understated finish, whilst the decorative soundhole rosette and tear drop pickguard provide a tasteful touch.
Sturdy neck design
Connected to the body via a compound dovetail neck-to-body joint is a solid mahogany neck, which has been shaped to the advanced response profile for a comfortable feel in the hand. Afforded a generous 24.75-inch scale length, the neck promotes a warm-sounding response from each string. 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. The 16-inch fingerboard radius offers a flatter feel to ensure that technique can be executed in comfort and with minimum resistance from fretting complex chord shapes to laying down smooth string bends.
L.R. Baggs VTC pickup system
Equipped with the award-winning L.R. Baggs 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 VTC 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.
The headstock is home to mini Grover Rotomatic tuners with kidney buttons, which work dutifully to uphold tuning integrity throughout the most energetic of performances. The body is home to a traditional belly-up walnut bridge, which anchors each string securely to optimise intonation and sustain.
