The Workingman's Gibson

Since its release, the J-45 has been the guitar of choice of legends like Bob Dylan, Lightning Hopkins even Buddy Holly. Dubbed "The Workhorse" by Gibson, it was an acoustic guitar anyone could afford. Times have since changed, and a J-45 costs a lot more than the original 45 dollars it did in 1942, but that doesn't mean you need to spend an arm and a leg to get a real made in American Gibson guitar. 

The J-45 Studio features a solid Sitka Spruce top and Walnut back and sides, which makes for a throaty tone with plenty of mid-range punch. It's the perfect guitar to strum chords on all day. It comes loaded with LR Baggs VTC electronics so you can take the guitar from your bedroom, to the gig with ease; plug into any PA and know you'll be heard clearly. The advanced response neck profile is super comfortable and won't make your hand ache on those long gigs. The Grover Rotomatic tuners ensure your guitar stays in tune and tunes smoothly. It comes with a Gibson Hardshell Case, so you can have peace of mind when you transport your Gibson. Read more below.
