About Gibson J-45
The Gibson J-45 is one of the quintessential Gibson acoustic guitars. Described by Gibson themselves back in the day as a 'workhorse', this stripped back instrument is perhaps the most popular Gibson acoustic model in history. Released in 1934 and known to Gibson as a round shouldered 'Jumbo', the J-45 is in reality far more like a dreadnought in style than anything else. With relatively straightforward styling, the J-45 lets its play-ability and sound do the talking, although with its trademark Vintage Sunburst finish (it comes in other colours too!), it is still a beautiful looking instrument.
There have been numerous iterations of this instruments over the many decades of its existence but the classic J-45 is made from solid mahogany with a solid spruce top. The characteristic sound is a great balance of frequencies, making it a superb go-to guitar for almost any style, picked or strummed. Modern Gibson J-45 guitars are often electro models fitted with a pickup system, allowing these wonderful instruments to be taken straight from their case and onto the stage!
At guitarguitar, acoustic guitars are a significant part of our stock and trade. We love them and we love Gibson acoustics in particular. We think that to hold a Gibson in your arms is to carry a piece of history and a piece of art. As such, we make sure all of our stores are well stocked with a wide variety of Gibson acoustics including the J-45 in various guises. As authorised Gibson and Gibson Custom dealers, we are able to secure many limited run and special edition instruments that other dealers cannot.
