What we say:

At A Glance:

Considered to be Gibson's first venture into the world of the dreadnought body shape, the J-45 is now seen to be Gibson's most widely used and best selling acoustic of all time!

Offering comfortable playing and a great sound to follow, the J-45 means business!

Nicknamed "The Workhorse" this iconic design has become the cornerstone of Gibson's Round-Shoulder, Dreadnought line. Renowned for its full, well balanced sound, thick bass tones, and great projection, the J-45 is the go-to for artists the World over!

Features We Love:

Slim Taper Neck Profile

The neck profile of a guitar is greatly important to how it feels when playing. The Slim Taper shape on this model offers comfort for the player and gives access to higher frets allowing you to make the most of this instrument! However, this is a Gibson after all, although named 'Slim Taper' there is still plenty to grab on to.

LR Baggs VTC Pickup

This guitar is conveniently fitted with a LR Baggs VTC pickup allowing you to plug in whenever you need to amplify. Producing a natural acoustic sound, you can count on this guitar to sound exactly how you'd expect whenever you plug it in.

A Player Favourite

This guitar has earned its nickname as "The Workhorse" for good reason. Favoured for its versatility, good looks, and ease of use, the J-45 has consistently earned its title time and time again.


  • Slim Taper neck feels great in your hand
  • LR Baggs pickup system is a fantastic addition providing convenience to no end
  • Tried and tested, this guitar has earned it's "Workhorse" title

Excellent sound and quality

Brian P. - 12/7/2022

I had never played a Gibson J-45 before and wanted to try it out before I bought one. However, the only one I could find in stock was at a store in Glasgow - and I live in East Kent!. So I decided to buy it and, if I didn't like it, send it back on the 30 day returns policy that this company offers. I needn't have worried, the sweet tone across the full range and the playability of the action far exceeded my expectations - I just love it and can't put the guitar down. After 50 years of playing on mediocre instruments, I really wish I had bought a guitar of this quality earlier. As for the Gibson case that comes with it, the quality is excellent beyond my experience. I have no hesitation in recommending this guitar to anyone who loves a sweet, clear tone and a sturdy, well built instrument.

Tony H. - 23/10/2021

Great guitar. I tried all the J45?s in stock and picked the one that felt right to me. Action on this model was best for me. Just felt right. Worth trying as many as ups can - they?re all different

Neil C. - 28/9/2021

Its a Gibson J45 wanted on for a while

John W. - 21/9/2021

I asked to try all the available stock for this model in order to make a comparison of tone, volume, finish etc, and nothing was too much trouble. I was able to whittle the choice down to the exact look and sound I wanted.

Roger S. - 3/9/2021

Amazing guitar that exceeded my expectations. Incredible tone and expression, easy to play and very versatile. Looks beautiful too.

Richard W. - 2/9/2021

Fantastic guitar and would highly recommend it. The action is perfect straight from the box and the guitar sounds wonderful. The slim body also makes it a dream to hold.

Stephen C. - 1/9/2021

It?s a Gibson. Unrivalled tone.

Ronald M. - 22/8/2021

Simon C. - 31/5/2021

George . - 21/5/2021

The guitar is good condition as it should be

jamie r. - 30/4/2021

Being ultra critical but I think the way the Gibson logo was applied was better in the 60's. Also not wild about the brown case

Harvey J. - 2/8/2020

Great guitar, waited few years to buy it.

Derek O. - 31/7/2020

A sound that I?ve never heard from any other guitar! Just great to play... every time i?d played a j-45 it always sounded amazing no matter the got my own now and very happy with it..

Mark M. - 13/5/2020

Ticks all the boxes for me.

David Y. - 1/10/2019

Very impressed with the tone. Only issue was very slight blemish but it appears to be difficult to get a Gibson without any marks
