What we say:

An undisputed classic, the J-45 has been a cornerstone for Gibson's iconic acoustic range since 1942. Indeed, it has been by far Gibson's best selling acoustic guitar and its popularity shows no signs of waning.

For 2018, Gibson has brought us a raft of new models and this distinctively lovely J-45 is one.

This J-45 has not only a Walnut top but Walnut for the back and sides too! Walnut is an excellent tonewood has properties similar to Koa: there is brightness and woodiness with some good warm overtones and strong fundamentals.

Used with the J-45’s round-shouldered design, you get an excellent balance of frequencies with just the right blend of warmth and sparkle. Strumming is strong and single notes have good character and presence. Using Walnut exclusively for the body was clearly a good idea: this guitar sings!

The neck is Mahogany, as you would expect with Gibson but the fingerboard is also Walnut, an interesting choice which helps give this guitar a great uniformity in its look.

Herringbone purfling and thick white body binding elevate the visuals whilst a thick teardrop pickguard sets off a dignified and rustic look. Gold grover tuners add a touch of opulence.

Gibson’s main choice of pickup on all 2018 acoustics is the LR Baggs VTC system: this high quality unit befits an acoustic of this calibre: your live tone will be as expressive and transparent as possible.

This Walnut J-45 is an excellent stray from the beaten path for Gibson: it makes great tonal and visual sense as well as keeping in with the overall vibe of traditional Gibson acoustics. This is a guitar that demands to be played!
