Gibson Acoustic J-45

gibson acoustic j-45

icknamed “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.

Nickel Grover Rotomatic Tuners Gibson Acoustic J-45 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 rosette on this Gibson acoustic guitar is a simple single-ring rosette consisting of three-ply binding, adding a stylish, understated elegance to the Gibson J-45 Standard.

The Gibson J-45 Standard is a part of Gibson’s top-selling Gibson 45 “The Workhorse” line, first introduced in 1942. This round-shoulder, dreadnought acoustic guitar is known for its full, balanced expression, its warm bass, and its excellent projection – much of which came through subtle changes to the bracing of its forefather, the J-35. The J-45 Standard features all that rich tone, thanks to its AA-grade Sitka spruce top and pattern-grade Honduras mahogany body. And, for unbelievable onstage tone, there’s a premier active pickup system installed on the Gibson J-45 Standard.

Known as “The Workhorse,” the Gibson J-45 body style is among Gibson’s most beloved. This particular workhorse features a superb blend of tonewoods, giving you rich, strong sound – day-in, day-out. The J-45 Standard features a AA-grade Sitka spruce top for presence, while pattern-grade Honduras mahogany adorns its back and sides. Other touches include hand-scalloped, radiused top bracing, a tapered dovetail neck joint, and a single-ring rosette with three-ply binding.

The Gibson J-45 Standard’s fingerboard comprises high-grade rosewood, which is personally inspected and qualified by Gibson experts before it enters the Gibson factories. It’s a resilient and durable wood, making way for a balanced and stable fingerboard, and giving each chord and note enhanced clarity and bite. The dot inlays on the J-45 are made of genuine mother-of-pearl-of-pearl, and are added to the fingerboard using a special Gibson process that eliminates gaps and doesn’t require fillers. What’s more, the J-45 Standard’s fingerboard boasts a rolled edge that’s lightly beveled, which enhances the instrument’s smooth playability.

The J-45 Standard comes with LR Baggs’s popular Element Active Acoustic Pickup System, which features a low-profile undersaddle transducer that’s proven more stable and durable than many standard ribbon-type pickups. Combined with an onboard preamplifier with an unobtrusive and removable volume control, mounted just inside the soundhole, the Element is a tremendous performer. 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. The Element works with a standard 9V battery, which is housed inside the guitar in L.R. Bagg’s new “Battery Bagg.”

Gibson’s new J-45 True Vintage captures the genuine spirit of Gibson’s most popular acoustic. Nicknamed “The Workhorse” for its simple, rock-solid construction, the new J-45 True Vintage—hand-made by Gibson Acoustic in Bozeman, Montana—offers the build, materials, looks, and tone of this legendary guitar as it was the day it was first introduced in 1942. This new model stays true to the original in every way, including the same round-shoulder dreadnought body design, with a top made from Adirondack red spruce, custom vintage top bracing, and back and sides constructed from pattern-grade mahogany from Honduras.
A rosette is the beautiful, hand-crafted circle around the soundhole, and can be one of the most ornamental elements of any acoustic guitar. It is also one of the most subtle and complicated woodworking decorations on any acoustic guitar. The rosette on the 1942 J-45 Legend is a simple single-ring rosette consisting of three-ply binding, adding a stylish, understated elegance to the 1942 J-45 Legend.

Every acoustic guitar made by Gibson features hand-scalloped, radiused top bracing inside the body, a feature normally found only in limited run, hand-made guitars. By scalloping each brace by hand, the natural sound of the acoustic is focused more toward the center of the body, enhancing the instrument’s sound projection. The 1942 J-45 Legend features a variation of Gibson’s “X” bracing pattern situated behind the soundhole, with a set of tall and thin braces for the back, and scalloped tall and thin braces for the top. This legendary bracing design—exactly as it appeared in the first J-45 in 1942—delivers a balanced expression, with punchy, deep lows, warm mids, and clear, crisp highs. It also projects a natural compression, which helps the J-45 blend nicely with any accompaniment.

By scalloping each brace by hand, the natural sound of the acoustic is focused more toward the center of the body, enhancing the instrument’s sound projection. The ギブソンj45 ヴィンテージ features a variation of Gibson’s “X” bracing pattern situated behind the soundhole, with a set of tall and thin braces for the back, and scalloped tall and thin braces for the top. This legendary bracing design delivers a balanced expression, with punchy, deep lows, warm mids, and clear, crisp highs. When pushed for more volume, the J-45 projects a natural compression, which helps it blend nicely with any accompaniment.

The dovetail neck joint is one of the oldest–and best–ways of securely joining the neck to the body of a guitar. It is also a complex and expensive neck joint to build, but the result is a tight, locking connection that supports the neck at the proper neck-pitch angle, allowing the body and neck to become one solid piece of resonating wood, with no metal to impede vibration. This process is done entirely by hand, requiring patience and skill.

The top of many “flat-top” guitars are under a lot of stress from the pull of the strings, which can eventually compromise the top. So, while most acoustic guitars are true “flat-top” gibson j-45 vine, all of the acoustics produced by Gibson in Bozeman, Montana have a radiused, or “tuned” top. Instead of being perfectly flat, a radiused or “tuned” top is raised slightly, and a special instrument is used to shape the top braces to the radius of the top. This process adds tension and strengthens the top, creating a less stressful joint where the top meets the sides and reducing the stresses of string pull. It also results in a “speaker cone” effect that maximizes sound projection, adding a significant boost to mid-range levels for a more balanced acoustic tone.

The J-45’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. 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.
