A modern, enhanced version of "The Workhorse" with L.R. Baggs electronics, hide glue construction and a radiused body.
This vintage-inspired '60s-style J-45, with its unique white pickguard, will turn heads and inspire curiosity in those who recognize the J-45 but have to look again just to make sure. Recreating a classic Gibson-era style, this limited edition incorporates the best of todays amplification technology with an L.R. Baggs Element VTC pickup, uniquely voiced for Gibson. With a solid Sitka spruce top and solid mahogany back and sides, the 1960s J-45 Vintage Sunburst also features a dovetail neck-to-body joint, hand-fitted and secured with hide glue to ensure unequalled resonance transfer from strings to body, a radiused body for projection and clarity, and a nitrocellulose lacquer finish which allows the tone to mature with age.
The J-45 is one of Gibsons best-selling acoustics of all time. Nicknamed œThe Workhorse and first introduced in 1942, this popular acoustic is now the icon of its round-shoulder, dreadnought line.
L.R. Baggs Element VTC Pickup System
The L.R. Baggs Element Active System VTC undersaddle acoustic pickup delivers performance previously unattainable from an undersaddle pickup. The streamlined and efficient design removes every unnecessary internal component to improve the coupling between the transducer and the guitar. This substantially improves the sensitivity of the transducer so the acoustic guitar pickup delivers a robust, lively, and open sound with great dynamics and a delicate high end. The L.R. Baggs Element Active System pairs the Element undersaddle transducer with a pre-contoured all-discrete class A endpin preamp and includes small, removable soundhole-mounted volume and tone controls (VTC) for added convenience and versatility.
