You are looking at a Gibson J-45 Standard Acoustic-Electric Guitar, serial number 12256022. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase.

Introduced in 1942, the J-45 is the one of the most widely recognized and best-selling acoustic guitars in Gibson history. Referred to as "The Workhorse" due to its stripped-down style and exceptional tone and playability, Gibson's flagship round-shoulder dreadnought model is back for 2017, giving players the perfect mixture of classic and updated features & appointments.

Delivering all the legendary low-end warmth, superb projection and full, balanced tone that made the originals so famous, the J-45 Standard sports a grade AA Sitka spruce top with scalloped bracing and mahogany back and sides. Offering an amazing fretting hand feel and smooth playability, the shorter 24.75"-scale mahogany neck is shaped into Gibson's fast SlimTaper profile and topped with a 12"-radius rosewood fingerboard featuring softened edges for enhanced comfort. Adding to the traditional appeal of this modern classic, the J-45 comes dressed in a nitro lacquer Vintage Sunburst finish and showcases 4-ply top binding, single-ply back binding, and a tortoise teardrop pickguard. From the studio to the stage, the upgraded onboard LR Baggs Element VTC electronics give the J-45 Standard its beautiful amplified sound. The J-45 Standard comes fitted with premium hardware including a set of nickel Grover Rotomatic tuning machines, a Belly up traditional rosewood bridge, and a Tusq nut and saddle.

Other features include an enhanced finish using finer grit sandpaper and polishing compounds, a premium PLEK setup, and smoother hand-rubbed and oiled fingerboard and bridge finishes. Comes complete with a hardshell case.
