                  Acoustic perfection

                  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.

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

                    The J-45 is an iconic acoustic guitar. It is one of the most well known guitars for good reason too. The dreadnought body provides a full bodied tone and a lot of volume. The spruce top paired with mahogany back and sides is a balanced combination and sounds great for any musical genre. The instrument is beautified by a classic sunburst finish that is timeless and classy. This is a great American made guitar.

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

                            Gibson's J45 is a well-rounded dreadnought guitar. It is especially suitable for singer-songwriters, and a great strumming guitar for all genres and pairs with voices quite well.

                            I thoroughly enjoy the tone of this guitar, despite the inconsistency of the quality and action that comes out of the Gibson factory. Some J45's are total gems while others need a little work setting up and breaking in. Also, I personally feel that the thicker finish on the guitar might take away from its potential. That being said, the J45 is a historic guitar and still definitely worth the consideration. Play before you buy!
