Gibson J-45 Acoustic Guitars

The J-45 is Gibson's best-selling acoustic of all time. Popular with singer-songwriters, the J-45 is the golden child of dreadnought design guitars - and should always be considered in any discussion.

Nicknamed "The Workhorse" and first introduced in 1942, this iconic acoustic has become the cornerstone of its round-shoulder, dreadnought line. World renowned for its full, balanced expression, warm bass and excellent projection, the J-45 has been refined to carry this legacy to new heights.

The J-45 was Gibson’s first foray into the dreadnought shape, and is considered to be Gibson’s most popular and widely-used acoustic. It offers a round-shoulder shape, as opposed to the Hummingbird’s square-shoulder. For many, this makes it a more comfortable playing experience but also takes away some of the top-end brightness. Perfect for singer-songwriters.

Notable for its subtle burst finish, warm low-end production and comfortable playability, it’s been used by countless artists across the spectrum. 
In the current line-up you’ll find 50s inspired, 60s inspired, the J-45 Standard and many more variations of this ever-popular acoustic guitar.
