The Gibson J-45 Standard Acoustic-Electric Guitar has withstood the test of time, spanned genres, and been an object of desire for countless players, worldwide. The J-45 is the Gibson equivalent of the Martin D-18. The combo of Sitka Spruce, and Mahogany along with the build recipe from Gibson yield some incredibly sweet sounds. Once broken in, meaning the Nitrocellulose Lacquer Finish begins to decay and the Solid Sitka Spruce soundboard learns how to resonate and vibrate under tension, this guitar will sound as sweet as they get! The Acoustic Gibson's we have been seeing have been incredible and are some of the nicest we have seen from the company in years. Gibson Montana is BACK!
