Gibson J-45 Custom


New for 2024: The Gibson J-45 Custom!

The J-45 is the most popular Gibson acoustic model of all time. Its distinctive tone has made it the choice of musical legends across genres for decades. Now, the Gibson Custom Shop is proud to introduce the new J-45 Custom. The classic J-45 features that players demand are all here, including a Sitka spruce top, mahogany back and sides, and a mahogany SlimTaper neck with a 24.75” scale length. The J-45 Custom takes things to the next level with Les Paul Custom-inspired cosmetics, including an Ebony nitrocellulose lacquer finish, multi-ply binding on the top and back, a bound Les Paul-style peghead with a Custom split diamond inlay in mother of pearl, a bound ebony fretboard with mother of pearl Custom Block inlays, and gold Grover Rotomatic tuners. It comes equipped with LR Baggs Session VTC electronics and a hardshell case.
