When you think of an acoustic guitar, many will picture the iconic and timeless dreadnought design with round shoulders. The Gibson J-45 is often referred to as a “workhorse” due to its balanced, wide-ranging tone and huge projection. This limited edition model features a blend of top quality tonewoods that contribute to the overall sound and beautiful appearance of the guitar.
This limited edition J-45 maintains that unmistakable body shape, and is constructed from very fine tonewoods. Sitka Spruce is used in the body top, offering plenty of volume in the guitar’s voice. Traditional scalloped X-bracing further reinforces the body top, adding strength to the tonewood.
Gibson have upgraded the J-45 by employing English walnut in the body back and sides. The natural appearance of the grains come through, giving the guitar a unique look. The advantage of English walnut is also its ability to contribute to enhance sustain while providing a well-balanced range of lows, mids and highs.
A mahogany neck is firmly joined to the body of the Gibson J-45 by a compound dovetail neck joint, feeling ultimately comfortable in the grip of your hand. The neck is topped with a rosewood fingerboard which offers 20 frets at your service. Dot inlays adorn the fretboard to guide you with confidence.
The limited edition J-45 English Walnut Acoustic is equipped with the well-known LR Baggs VTC pickup system. This undersaddle pickup is subtle in appearance but not in sound. The sound projected by the LR Baggs VTC pickup can be easily adjusted using the removable volume and tone controls beneath the soundhole. This pickup system amplifies the J-45 wonderfully and with complete acoustic clarity through your desired amp or PA system.
HARDWARE AND FINISH
The headstock of the J-45 is kitted out with gold open-back Grover tuners, which not only provide accurate tuning, but also add to the guitar’s elegant appearance. The Tusq nut and saddle on the guitar also ensure that tuning remains in tact, so you can play on with ease.
The J-45 is fitted with a rigid rosewood bridge that holds a strong connection between the strings and body, thus providing a great level of sustain. The body is treated with a nitrocellulose lacquer finish, a single-ring rosette and multi-ply binding offering the ideal finishing touch to this stunning English Walnut acoustic in Honeyburst.
