  • Description

    Handmade by the master luthiers at the Gibson Acoustic Custom Shop, the Gibson Limited Edition 1965 J-45 Donovan Model pays homage to the instrument that helped make the Scottish folk-pop singer a legend. Featuring a classic dreadnought round-shoulder body with custom mid '60s dimensions, mahogany back and sides, and a Sitka spruce top with traditional scalloped X-bracing, the Gibson 1965 J-45 Donovan offers a meticulous recreation of a stunning guitar with a beautiful, projective acoustic voice that's sure to inspire. In order to faithfully replicate the appearance of Donovan's original J-45, the top comes dressed in a glossy nitrocellulose period-correct Cherry Sunburst finish. For exceptional playability and classic comfort, the 24.75"-scale mahogany neck holds true to the feel of the original, and is capped with a rosewood fingerboard that features a 12" radius and a special 1.75" bone nut.

    The Gibson Limited Edition 1965 J-45 Donovan is ready to take on any performance thanks to the high-quality, award-winning bridge plate-mounted L.R. Baggs Lyric acoustic guitar microphone system. Other premium vintage-inspired features include a traditional rosewood belly up bridge with an adjustable saddle, a '50s-style tortoise pickguard, and a set of vintage-style white button tuning machines.

    A Gibson hardshell case is included with your purchase to preserve and protect this finely crafted instrument. Also included with your purchase of the Gibson 1965 J-45 Donovan Acoustic-Electric guitar is a Certificate of Authenticity from Gibson Acoustic.
