The Gibson Acoustic 2018 J-45 Avant Garde Acoustic Guitar in Walnut Burst offers the same exceptional build quality that goes into all their Gibson Acoustic models, in a slimline cutaway body that is a departure from the usual J-45 round shoulder dreadnought. The result is a rendition of the famous "Workhorse" that offers enhanced playing comfort whilst retaining the same vigorous energy and resilience.

Dreadnought power

The Gibson J-45 is highly respected the world over thanks to its impressive dynamic range, hardy build quality, and rich acoustic timbre. The 2018 J-45 Avant Garde back and sides are crafted using walnut, a hardwood that produces a warm midrange timbre whilst establishing a reassuringly robust feel. The top is built using Sitka spruce, a tonewood that is favoured in soundboard construction thanks to its excellent ability to resonate and project tones with confidence. The top is reinforced using traditional hand-scalloped X-bracing, allowing to resonate unimpeded whilst preventing buckling or warping over time.

Sturdy neck design

Married to the body via a compound dovetail joint is a supple two-piece maple neck, which has been shaped to the advanced response profile for a slimmer feel in the hand. Married to the neck is a luxurious walnut fingerboard, which is home to 20 frets that are adorned with mother of pearl dot position inlays to provide a lavish navigational aid. The fingerboard is polished with finishing oil to enhance the natural compounds of the wood, thus giving it a lasting feel of elegance.

Gig-ready appointments

The headstock is home to Mini Grover tuners, which uphold tuning integrity with precision. The body is home to the rounded rectangle walnut bridge, which creates a seamless connection between the strings and body for optimised intonation and sustain. The result is a guitar that performs with consistency every time you pick up and play. Whether you're recording in the studio or taking to the stage, knowing that you can rely on your instrument is of the utmost importance. You can put all your trust in the J-45.

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.

The Gibson Acoustic 2018 J-45 Avant Garde Acoustic Guitar in Walnut Burst is supplied with a Gibson hardshell case, as well as a Gibson accessory kit. Wherever your music takes you, you can get your guitar there in security and style, and keep it in top condition for years to come.
