The Gibson 50’s J-45 Original Acoustic Guitar Vintage Sunburst flaunts vintage-inspired detailing from the golden-era of Gibson, featuring classic “Workhorse” materials including a Sitka spruce top and select mahogany back and sides.

The multi-ply top and single-ply back binding are subtlety antiqued making each instrument look just like a seasoned Gibson acoustic. The Gibson 50’s J-45 Original Acoustic Guitar Vintage Sunburst is appointed with cream button tuners, a 1950s-era tortoise pick guard, and upgraded with an LR Baggs VTC pickup for the best and most natural-sounding tone when amplified.
