When collaborating with Gibson on the design of his signature J-45, Brad Paisley tried to recreate the magic of his own early ’60s J-45. The rich tone, the rhythmic capabilities, and the unmistakable feel are all qualities Paisley and Gibson have brought to this guitar. Only 300 of the Brad Paisley J-45 will ever be produced, all made w/Adirondack Spruce Tops each is destined to be a collectors item. This is truly near Mint & comes w/all candy, Certificate & original hard case.

Fit for a Country Superstar
You don’t need to be a chart-topping country superstar like Brad Paisley to recognize the magnificence of his signature J-45. Based on Paisley’s prized ’63 edition and maintaining its classic look and feel, Gibson included the latest advances in quality guitar craftsmanship to make this J-45 even better. The added warmth and unbeatable projection of the Adirondack red spruce top combined with the fine mahogany back and sides creates a brilliant tone. Plus, the sound-hole mounted Fishman Ellipse Aura pickup and preamp system provide the quality electronics needed to project quality sound through even the largest PA systems.

Handcrafted in Bozeman MT
Like all the signature Gibson acoustics, each Brad Paisley signature J-45 is hand-built by the luthiers in Bozeman, Montana to the highest standards of craftsmanship and quality. The neck is carved from a single piece of quarter-sawn mahogany in the modified V profile and attached with the compound dovetail method for enhanced stability and resonance. At Brad’s specification, the pickguard sports a engraved flourish to match the stunning cherry sunburst finish, and the vintage-style tuning machines are hand-built for extreme stability. The headstock even includes the classic era Gibson banner declaring, “Only a Gibson is Good Enough.”

Features:
– Original J-45 round shoulder body type for comfortable playability and tonal excellence
– Sound-hole mounted Fishman Ellipse Aura pickup and preamp system
– Vintage flair with cherry sunburst finish, classic era inlays, pickgaurd and Gibson banner
– Single piece mahogany neck with modified V profile attached with Gibson’s compound dovetail method
– Vintage style tuners hand-built for maximum tuning stability
– Includes custom hardshell case, manual and Gibson Gold warranty

The Brad Paisley J-45 combines all the classic qualities of a vintage Gibson acoustic with the modern features demanded by today’s performers. When he received his signature model from Gibson, Brad was thrilled that he would no longer have to risk taking his original J-45 on the road.
