Introduced in 1942, the Gibson J-45 remains the best-selling and most popular of the Gibson Acoustic models. The J-45 is widely known for its simplistic, understated yet stylish aesthetic, and more importantly, its distinct acoustic voice that sounds great no matter what style or genre you play—truly living up to the guitar's nickname, "The Workhorse".

The Limited Edition J-45 Vintage from Gibson Acoustic brings players closer than ever before to the legendary sound, look, and feel of an actual vintage J-45 thanks to an array of historically-accurate features, period-correct appointments, a thermally-aged top, and more!

To faithfully re-create the unique aesthetic and warm, broken-in tone that you'd normally only expect from a vintage acoustic, Gibson employs an Adirondack red spruce top that's been thermally aged to replicate the aging process on a cellular level. Adding to the authentic vintage sound, the top is paired with genuine mahogany back & sides and custom vintage scalloped bracing that features period-correct hot hide glue adhesive for superior resonance, projection, and sound transference. The J-45 Vintage features multi-ply top binding, single-ply back binding, and an ultra-thin VOS Vintage Sunburst finish to offer a gracefully aged look.

The neck of the J-45 Vintage plays beautifully and also holds true to the look and feel of the original. Fitted to the body with hot hide glue adhesive, the mahogany neck is carved into a comfortable Vintage Round profile and features a classic 24.75" scale length. For smooth playability, the 20-fret rosewood fingerboard sports a cozy 1.725" nut width while a traditional Gibson script logo and banner decal adorn the headstock to add to the genuine vintage vibe of the J-45 Vintage.

Catering to the authenticity of this stunning replica, the Limited Edition J-45 Vintage comes equipped with a set of Gotoh Relic Aged nickel tuners, a Belly up traditional rosewood bridge, and a bone nut & saddle. Includes hardshell case.
