A Deluxe Version of a Gibson Classic
The Gibson Acoustic J-45 Deluxe acoustic-electric guitar sits at the top of Gibson’s top-selling J-45 “The Workhorse” line, first introduced in 1942. This round-shoulder, dreadnought acoustic guitar is known for its full, balanced expression, warm bass, and excellent projection — much of which came through subtle changes to the bracing of its forefather, the J-35. The J-45 features all that rich tone, thanks to its sitka spruce top and rosewood body. And, for unbelievable onstage tone, there’s an active LR Baggs pickup system installed on the Gibson Acoustic J-45 Deluxe.

The J-45 Deluxe comes with LR Baggs’s popular VTC acoustic pickup system, a popular choice among acoustic guitarists. This system features a low-profile under-saddle transducer that’s proven more stable and durable than many standard ribbon-type pickups. Its sleek and effective design removes unnecessary internal components to enhance the coupling between the pickup and the guitar and improve the sensitivity of the transducer for a robust, lively, and natural acoustic sound with excellent dynamics and delicate high end. Combined with an onboard preamplifier with an unobtrusive and removable volume control, mounted just inside the soundhole, the Element gives your J-45 Deluxe the amplification you need, with zero compromises for tone or convenience.
Round shoulder design offers tremendous playability
Descending from Gibson’s large HG Hawaiian guitar in 1929, and the original “Jumbo,” introduced in 1934, round shoulder dreadnoughts are steeped in Gibson tradition and lauded for their pure, rich tones, and impressive volume. With smooth lines, and a curvaceous shape, round-shouldered style guitars invite a close relationship with their respective guitarists: their body shape makes these guitars easier to hold and more comfortable to wrap your arms around.
