Item: GBRS45VSN19072

The J-45 has been Gibson's top-selling acoustic guitar for years. Nicknamed “The Workhorse” and first introduced in 1942, Gibson's most popular acoustic is now the icon of its round-shoulder, dreadnought line, 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 one of most technically advanced guitars of its time.
