Rosewood Fingerboard with Rolled Edges and Dot Inlays,The fingerboard of Gibson’s J-45 is constructed from the highest grade rosewood on earth, which is personally inspected and qualified by Gibson’s team of skilled experts before it enters the Gibson factories. The resilience of this durable wood makes the fingerboard extremely balanced and stable, and gives each chord and note unparalleled clarity and bite.

The J-45 guitar’s dot inlays are made of genuine mother of pearl, measuring approximately 1/4-inch in diameter, and are inserted into the fingerboard using a process that eliminates gaps and doesn’t require the use of fillers. The fingerboard also sports a rolled edge instead of the usual right angle where the fingerboard surface meets the neck. Gibson Acoustic’s rolled edges are slightly beveled for an extremely smooth and comfortable feel, enhancing the playability of the J-45.

J45 Guitar


In 1947 Gibson officially introduced the J-50 guitar, essentially a natural-finish J-45, though Gibson shipped a handful of J-50 guitars already in 1942. One difference between the two is the top, which is triple-bound in the J-50 instead of single-bound; however, Gibson also made some early j-45 vintage ,J-45s with a triple-bound top. As mentioned, the sunburst finish was useful for hiding flaws in the wood. The J-50 wasn’t introduced until after World War II. Decent wood supplies were easier to come by, so Gibson didn’t need to resort to using imperfect wood on all its instruments. This better quality wood justified the production of the natural-finish J-50, as there were very few flaws which needed to be covered up by a sunburst finish. Gibson did continue to produce the sunburst J-45, however, and it is still an important part of Gibson’s production line today.

Nicknamed “The Workhorse” and first introduced in 1942, Gibson’s most popular round-shoulder dreadnought guitar is world-renowned for its full, balanced expression, warm bass, and excellent projection. Subtle changes to the bracing of its predecessor-the J-35-made Gibson’s J-45 Standard one of most technically advanced acoustic electric guitars of its time.

Grover’s original Rotomatic tuners are an engineering marvel, with abundant style and performance exactly suited for the Gibson J-45. With a gear ratio of 14:1, the Rotomatics deliver precision tuning in a durable housing that provides maximum protection for the gear and string post. All moving parts are cut for exact meshing, eliminating the possibility of slippage. A countersunk tension screw lets you regulate the tuning tension to any degree. A special lubricant inside the gearbox provides smooth and accurate tuning stability.

The top of the Gibson J-45 acoustic electric guitar is made from AA-grade Sitka spruce, while the back and sides are constructed from pattern-grade Honduran mahogany, giving the J-45 guitar its world renowned full, balanced expression, warm bass, and excellent projection. Selecting the right wood, and the formula to dry it out are two of the most pivotal processes in Gibson’s guitar-building process. Beginning with its first catalog in 1903, Gibson has assured its customers that every guitar would be built using woods with “the most durable, elastic, and sonorous qualities,” and today’s guitars from Gibson Acoustic maintain that standard.

The pickguard for the J-45 acoustic electric guitar is Gibson’s standard plain tortoise tear drop shape, which has been used on the J-45 since its introduction in 1942. As with all of Gibson’s pickguards, the coloring, inlay, and binding are all done by hand.

The Gibson J-45 is an acoustic guitar model manufactured by the Gibson Guitar Corporation. It is part of Gibson’s round-shoulder, dreadnought acoustic “jumbo” line, begun in 1934 with the Gibson Jumbo Flattop which was to compete with C.F. Martin & Company’s “D” line.

The J-45 is generally regarded as Gibson’s most famous and widely used acoustic guitar model. Introduced in 1942 with a list price of $45, it was conceived as a replacement for the earlier J-35 model, which was an inexpensive, Great Depression-era flattop guitar. The J-45 initially varied only slightly from the discontinued J-35. Some of the changes were internal, such as strengthened bracing, while exterior changes included the new teardrop-shaped pickguard, and a headstock decal with the Gibson logo replacing the old stark white ‘Gibson’ silkscreen logo of the thirties, and the slogan “Only a Gibson Is Good Enough.” The J-45 also had a more rounded, “baseball bat” style neck, as opposed to the “V” shape of the J-35 neck. Introduced during World War II, the J-45 standardized Gibson’s approach to the dreadnought guitar. The J-45 produced by Gibson today is substantially similar to the 1942 model.

Cosmetically, the 1967 gibson j45 was understated, intended as a durable no-frills “workhorse guitar” (its nickname given by the manufacturer). The binding was simple, the soundhole ring was austere, and the neck sported modest dot-shaped mother of pearl fretboard position markers. Gibson typically used the sunburst finish to cover up imperfections in the wood used on instruments, since it made the majority of the top of the guitar black. The J-45 was constructed of solid (as opposed to laminated) spruce wood for the top, while solid mahogany was used for the back and sides. In the intervening years though, the Gibson sunburst has become iconic to the degree that collectors prefer the J-45 to the higher end J-50s of the same era. Apart from a small batch of natural-finish J-45s produced in 1942, the model was offered only in the sunburst finish. The J-45 is known for its warm bass sound and good projection, as well as outstanding playability.

The Gibson J 45  is one of Gibson’s best-selling acoustics of all time. Nicknamed “The Workhorse” and first introduced in 1942, this popular acoustic is now the icon of its round-shoulder, dreadnought line. World renowned for its full, balanced expression, warm bass and excellent projection, the J-45 is one of most technically advanced guitars of its time.

Each guitar includes a black hardshell case with plush-lined interior, owner’s manual, Gibson’s Gold Warranty and Gibson’s 24/7/365 Customer Service. a J-45 to add to my guitar collection and so I did quite a bit of research on Gibson acoustics. All this chatter about poor quality & dog guitars and yet there are folks who love them. I had to separate fact from fiction. Two things I learned; 1) apparently the only good Gibsons are very old ones. I tried 10 new Gibsons in various stores and found all sounded “eh” and half of those needed repair right out of the box (like, malfunctioning tuner, chipped bridgeplate, blemished finish….). Three J-45s were so bad they were not even playable (strings buzzed on one and the other two were out of intonation).

The salesman try to brush it under the rug with “humidity, shipping, people playing them” type excuses but funny how Taylors, Martins and others don’t have the same problem? Poor quality product – fact. Turns out the J-45s pros e seen with are really old, no new ones anywhere. 2) Gibson is an absolute mess as an acoustic guitar company. With novelty products being made for private parties and then not available to the public but on their website, or products they make but are not on their website, it’s most confusing to the consumer.

Customer service is like asking for a tongue lashing from a teacher. Either they don’t want to hear what your concerns are or simply have no information at all. Forget about asking them to build a guitar to your liking because they’ll tell you to go somewhere else. Stores complain that Gibson does not support them with quality product and so consequently sales are low. Gee, I can’t understand why! I think some of the Gibson models are gorgeous but I can’t afford a 1951 model in great condition so Gibson won’t be in my guitar stable. You feel like you just want to slap them across the face to wake them up and get with the program!
