A faifhfully recreated ode to one of the Hurdy Gurdy man's main musical partners.

Named after the legendary Rock and Roll Hall of Fame folk hero, Gibson's Donovan 1965 J-45 Acoustic is a highly detailed recreation of the one used by the man behind such classics as "Mellow Yellow" and "Sunshine, Superman." It features the time-tested combo of Sitka spruce top paired with mahogany back and sides which will give you plenty of prejection and presence, making this a songwriter's dream. Its classic good looks are a combination of traditional build and a thin, naturally cured, nitrocellulose finish and matte which make it look just like the original guitar.

Other appointments include a period-correct 1.75" nut width, double ring rosette, modified round profile, a 50's style tortoise pickguard, rosewood belly up bridge with adjustable tusq saddle and 3-in-1 white button tuners. Each guitar includes an autographed label and personal letter from the famous Scottish troubadour and a custom hardshell case.
