The body’s top is made from solid Adirondack Red Spruce, a rare and highly prized wood for use in the construction of soundboards of acoustic guitars. Its back and sides are made from solid Honduras mahogany, a select tonewood employed by many classic flat-top guitars. Body Species
Tonal Characteristics
The Brad Paisley Model presents superb depth and tonal complexity comparable to the great large-bodied pre-War mahogany flat-tops. The solid Adirondack Red Spruce top and hide glue vintage replica bracing contributes to a rich, luscious voice with excellent clarity, while the mahogany back and sides add definition and complexity to the tone. All of this, and unsurpassed volume and projection, suit the Brad Paisley Model to a surprisingly wide range of playing styles.  
The Brad Paisley Model is designed along the lines of the large-bodied, round-shouldered 1942 J-45 Legend model, an all-time classic that Gibson introduced that exactly recreates an original J-45 released in 1942. Its 16 1/4”-wide body produces the superior volume and full, vibrant tone that leading singer-songwriters have relied upon for nearly 70 years. Body Design
The Brad Paisley Model is finished in Gibson’s custom bright Cherry Sunburst like the J-45s of the early 1960s . Body Design
Gibson’s acclaimed acoustic facility in Bozeman, Montana, hand finishes these guitars in nitrocellulose lacquer, which is kept to a low build-up and hand buffed to a high sheen. In addition to looking great and aging beautifully, this thin nitrocellulose finish avoids impeding of the guitar’s resonance.
