The Gibson 50s J-45 Original Acoustic-Electric Guitar features a classic combination of tonewoods with a Sitka spruce top, maple back, sides, and neck, and a rosewood fingerboard. The ebony finish further accentuates the iconic looks and, let's face it, this guitar is pure class! Perfect for live performances, the built-in electronics deliver a powerful amplified acoustic sound. This acoustic-electric guitar is brand new and comes with its full manufacturer's warranty and original hardshell case. The Music Gallery is proud to be an authorized Gibson Dealer!
The Ebony Nitrocellulose is a striking change from the typical Sunburst. Don't get me wrong, we all love a well-executed sunburst but not only is the Mirror black, all-over nitro finish a nice change of pace, it's dark, alluring, and topped off with a red tortoise shell patterned pickguard.
The J-45 has long been considered a workhorse. A no-frills machine that will take whatever you throw at it, and stand the test of time. The combo of a Sitka spruce top and mahogany back and sides provides a timeless sound that is as focused as it is articulate. This striking guitar is finished in EBony for a drop-dead gorgeous-looking Gibson Acoustic Guitar!
The neck is made from Mahogany and carved to a Rounded Profile. The fingerboard is made from Rosewood and has the typical Gibson radius of 12". 1.724" nut width, a bone nut, and 24.75" scale length round out the neck numericals.
An LR Baggs VTC Pickup System comes factory installed so this guitar is ready for whatever you throw at it. With volume and tone controls easily accessed just inside the soundhole, dialing in your sound is easy and fast.
