Gibson’s Best-selling Acoustic, Now with a Nitro Finish!

The Gibson Acoustic J-45 is the best-selling Gibson acoustic of all time — and for good reason! This balanced, round-shouldered dreadnought guitar features undeniable looks and impressive capabilities. Each J-45 is built in Bozeman, Montana, by passionate artisans, and this latest Gibson Acoustic ’50s J-45 acoustic-electric features a nitro satin finish for reinvigorated looks, feel, and tone. With features like gig-ready LR Baggs VTC electronics and a glorious solid-wood construction, this J-45 is a perfect all-purpose guitar. A spruce top paired with mahogany back and sides, a mahogany neck, and a rosewood fingerboard yield distinct resonance packed with equal clarity and depth. It’s a multi-purpose masterpiece that players highly recommend having on hand for studio sessions, gigs, and more!

Spruce and mahogany — the perfect pairing!

Few acoustic tonewood pairings capture the magic of mahogany and spruce. Mahogany shapes and holds notes with excellent focus, sustain, and midrange, while spruce adds a dash of top-end treble magic (not to mention strong volume and projection). This Gibson J-45 features a satin-finished Sitka spruce top with mahogany back and sides. Also, premium hardware, including a rosewood saddle and a bone nut, ensures that your guitar strings and tonewoods always resonate with strength and clarity, resulting in a playing experience like no other.

Smooth playability

The ’50s J-45’s neck is made from satin-finished mahogany, a classic choice that feels natural, sturdy, and fluid. The neck features a smooth 20-fret rosewood fingerboard with stunning mother-of-pearl dot inlays. The fingerboard features Gibson’s reliable 24.75-inch scale, which guarantees a slightly softer, slinkier string feel than the average acoustic — which is especially useful if you’re big on bends, hammer-ons, or progressive fingerpicking! Additionally, this guitar comes equipped with ultra-sturdy Gotoh tuners that ensure reliable performance and plenty of solid playtime — with tuning breaks few and far in between.

LR Baggs VTC electronics

LR Baggs VTC electronics capture the kind of amplified acoustic tone you’d expect from a world-class audio engineer working overtime. At the core of the VTC system is an LR Baggs Element pickup with tone and volume controls — a unique build that tracks the guitar top’s vibrations instead of string attack. VTC technology saturates amplified tone with extra harmonic content and analog warmth that’s natural sounding yet noticeably better than a standard acoustic pickup. Additional dynamic automatic EQ handles problematic frequencies as they arise with touch-sensitive compression that works with your playing for a more authentic amplified tone that’s tough to beat.
