You can never have too much of a good thing and the new J-45 Cutaway is just that! For the first time ever, we offer our iconic model as a new, modern cutaway model. When you play the new J-45 Cutaway you'll notice that it responds exactly to the player's style and technique- powerful one moment, and soft and mellow the next. This characteristic of Round Shoulder guitars is certainly one of the main attractions that players have to our famous J-45 model, affectionately called "The Workhorse".
