Gibson J-45 Standard Cherry


Gibson's acoustic workhorse, now in a cool Cherry red finish!

What is it with Gibson guitars? They have enormous allure and status, including this Gibson J-45 Standard, which this time has a striking Cherry finish. When you hold the guitar, you just feel that you are holding a top instrument. Part of this appeal is, of course, in Gibson's storied history and legacy. But the sound and looks of this J-45 Standard also play a major role. The combination of the sitka spruce top with the 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. The mahogany neck has a smart taper profile which makes it very attractive for guitarists with smaller hands. 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.
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 J-45 has been refined to carry this legacy to new heights. The Gibson J-45 Standard's classic combination of a Sitka spruce top coupled with mahogany back and sides deliver a sound with incredible dynamic range, warm mids, and a tight punchy bass. Now available in Cherry; a Gibson hardshell case is included.
