The legendary Gibson J-45 in a vintage correct Original version: a beautiful steel string!

The name Gibson carries an awful lot of weight. Over the years , they've built up tremendous stature and stature by producing some of the most popular guitar models in history, and the Gibson J-45 naturally falls into that category. With this Gibson 50's J-45 Original Vintage Sunburst you can bring a piece of Gibson history into your home! The difference between this version and the Standard version is that the '50s Original reissue is closer to the model from the 1950s. You can tell by a number of (cosmetic) things such as the multi-ply binding around the top, larger '50s pickguard instead of the teardrop pickguard, subtle cream tuners and a slightly larger neck profile. The whole thing has been aged in a very subtle way, which makes this J-45 feel like it's been around for a few years, and when you pick up the guitar and play it, you just feel that it's in the right place; in the end, the sound and looks of this J-45 play the leading role. The combination of the sitka spruce top with the selected mahogany back and sides give this J-45 Standard its unmistakable character: grand and warm, the ideal accompaniment guitar. You can really tell a story with this guitar, as the J-45 gets shy when you play soft and screams when you play hard. Beautiful. And the J-45 Standard is also completely correct in terms of looks. The sitka spruce top is finished in a Vintage Sunburst finish. That color is already beautiful now, let alone in 40 years. Finally, this beautiful acoustic guitar is equipped with the LR Baggs VTC system. This is a top of the bill pickup system that brings out every nuance of every string. Insane. Includes Gibson hardshell case.
