2016 GIBSON ACOUSTIC J-45 Standard - Vintage Sunburst. Un-played, brand new, not been a demo in a store.
Gibson's J-45 Standard acoustic-electric is one of the best known acoustics in the music world. This round-shoulder, dreadnought gives your music full, balanced expression, warm bass, and excellent projection. It features all that rich tone, thanks to its AA-grade Sitka spruce top and a solid mahogany body. And, for unbelievable onstage tone, it has an LR Baggs VTC pickup system installed.
The J-45 Standard features a AA-grade Sitka spruce top for presence, while pattern-grade Honduras mahogany adorns its back and sides. Other touches include hand-scalloped, radiused top bracing, a tapered dovetail neck joint, and a single-ring rosette with three-ply binding.
The fingerboard comprises high-grade rosewood, which is personally inspected and qualified by Gibson experts before it enters the Gibson factories. It's a resilient and durable wood giving each chord and note enhanced clarity and bite. the J-45 Standard's fingerboard boasts a rolled edge that's lightly beveled, which enhances playability.
The LR Baggs's popular VTC acoustic pickup system features a low-profile under-saddle transducer that's proven more stable and durable than many standard ribbon-type pickups. Its sleek and effective design removes unnecessary internal components to enhance the coupling between the pickup and the guitar and improve the sensitivity of the transducer for a robust, lively, and natural acoustic sound with excellent dynamics and delicate high end. Combined with an onboard preamplifier with an unobtrusive and removable volume control, mounted just inside the soundhole, the VTC gives your Gibson Acoustic J-45 the amplification you need, with zero compromises for tone or convenience.
