A 1950s-inspired J-45

The new 50s J-45 Original model flaunts vintage-inspired detailing from the golden era of Gibson. Classic “Workhorse” materials include a Sitka Spruce top and Select Mahogany back and sides. The multi-ply top and single-ply back binding are subtly antiqued making each instrument look just like a seasoned Gibson acoustic. Appointed with cream button tuners, a 50s-era tortoise pick guard, and upgraded with an LR Baggs® VTC pickup for the best and most natural-sounding tone when amplified.
