                A classic acoustic model by Gibson that stands the test of time. Still sounding as good as any vintage j-45 the new ones really hold up. Great tone superior craftsmanship and easy to play\. A great singing guitar that has the option to be plugged in. This is a real hands on review from Eric @ Sam Ash Cincinnati.

                This is an iconic instrument heard on literally thousands of recordings. Plays fantastic, and the sound is buttery and smooth with a natural compression that has never been duplicated in another instrument.

                      This is an excellent all around guitar. Has a wonderful warm tone and has great playability. It is a great reflection of the classic guitars of yesteryear that Gibson is so fondly respected for. If you are looking for a vintage vibe style and sound then this is definitely a guitar worth looking into.

                            Gibson is probably the biggest name in guitars and this J-45 standard acoustic is no exception in the quality we've all come to know and love. Its world famous for its exceptional tone including full bass and awesome projection. Comes with the hard case when you purchase it as Gibson's gold warranty. Sitka top, Honduran mahogany back and sides, hand-sprayed nitrocellulose lacquer finish, rosewood fret-board, L.R. Baggs Element Active acoustic pickup system, and Nickel Grover Rotomatic tuners. Make sure to stop into Sam Ash as soon as possible to try one out today!

                            Comments about Gibson J-45 Standard Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

                            If you play acoustic guitar and don't have one of these you are doing it wrong. This guitar is perfect in every way for anyone who is a singer songwriter. This guitar rules Nashville. The mahogany back and sides and the spruce top just make a perfect meld of warmth and brightness and the x bracing gives the midrange prominence. The slim style neck that is masterfully dove tail jointed makes playing this guitar a dream come true.
