Gibson 2019 J-45 Vintage
The WorkhorseWith 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!
The J-45 Vintage stays true to the original in every way, including the same round-shoulder dreadnought body design, an enhanced top built from Thermally Aged Adirondack red spruce, custom vintage hide glue top bracing, and back and sides constructed from genuine mahogany. Finished with Gibson's new Thin Finish plus a hand rubbed VOS process for a truly vintage-inspired look and feel.
