The Workhorse

With the J-45 design, you essentially get the best of ALL worlds! Here, we have a large bodied guitar that has the bark and fullness of its dreadnought brethren, yet the sensitivity and all out responsiveness of a smaller bodied guitar. With a collection of strengths such as these, it's no wonder than these lovely guitars are so often referred to as, simply, "The Workhorse." The slightly shorter scale length and light build philosophy makes this the secret weapon for fingerpickers looking for a larger body--just ask Jackson Browne!

Now, Wildwood Guitars invites you to experience all of that glorious J-45 tone with a twist! This lovely axe has a beautiful body made entirely of rich mahogany! This is cool for several reasons. First, the darker wood looks spectacular with the natural finish, and it gives this guitar an aesthetic that remains bold and exciting while also paying homage to the traditional styling of vintage Gibsons. Second, it sounds spectacular, too! As a tonewood, mahogany sings out with an incredibly warm, round voice. When you combine the classic J-45 sound with the crispness and the richness of mahogany, the result is a guitar that can take on any challenge on from the stage, the studio, or the porch. Wildwood Guitars is proud to present the all-mahogany J-45, and we can't wait to see how it inspires you!
