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!
