Gibson J-45 Standard Rosewood: The Classic Acoustic with Modern Elegance

The Gibson J-45 Standard Rosewood is a timeless round-shoulder acoustic guitar that combines classic design with modern elegance. Known for its rich, warm tones, this guitar features a rosewood back and sides paired with a Sitka spruce top, offering a balanced and resonant sound. The gold Grover Rotomatic tuners and L.R. Baggs VTC electronics ensure reliable tuning and versatile amplification, making this guitar perfect for both live performances and studio recordings.

Superior Craftsmanship and Materials

Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, the J-45 Standard Rosewood showcases the finest materials. The body is constructed from high-quality rosewood, complemented by a Sitka spruce top. Traditional hand-scalloped X bracing enhances the guitar's resonance and projection, while the multi-ply top and single-ply back binding add a touch of elegance. The gloss nitrocellulose lacquer finish not only enhances the guitar's aesthetic appeal but also allows the wood to breathe and age gracefully.

Playability and Comfort

Designed for comfort and playability, the J-45 features a SlimTaper neck profile, making it easy to navigate the fretboard. The Indian rosewood fingerboard with a 12-inch radius ensures smooth playability, while the standard frets and mother-of-pearl dot inlays provide a classic look. The compound dovetail neck-to-body joint, secured with hot hide glue, offers superior stability and enhances the guitar's overall tone.

Premium Hardware and Electronics

Equipped with premium hardware, the J-45 Standard Rosewood includes a reverse belly rosewood bridge and TUSQ saddle, ensuring optimal sound transfer and intonation. The gold Grover Rotomatic tuning machines provide precise tuning stability. For amplified performances, the L.R. Baggs VTC under-saddle pickup and preamp deliver a natural acoustic tone with controls for volume and tone discreetly mounted in the soundhole. The 1/4" endpin jack doubles as a strap button for added convenience.
