Gibson J-45 Standard Dreadnought Acoustic/Electric

The J-45 is Gibson's best-selling acoustic of all time. Nicknamed "The Workhorse" and first introduced in 1942, this iconic acoustic has become the cornerstone of its round-shoulder, dreadnought line. World renowned for its full, balanced expression, warm bass and excellent projection, the 2016 J-45 has been refined to carry this legacy to new heights.

  • New 2016 Truss Rod Cover: New for the 2016 line, custom engraved 2016 truss rod covers

  • Improved Feel: Gibson Acoustic "rolls" the edges of the fingerboard into the curve of the neck profile for a sublimely comfortable playing feel.
  • Enhanced Finish: The use of finer grit sandpaper and polishing compounds in a laborious hand-rubbed process results in a smoother high-gloss finish. 
  • Premium Setup: A final setup on our German-engineered Plek system yields uncompromising playability, which is completed by hand for utter perfection. 
  • Smoother Hand Rubbed and Oiled Fingerboards: Deeper penetrating oils hand rubbed into critical wood components yield smoother and more durable fingerboards and bridges.
