Description & Specs

The J-45 is Gibson’s best-selling acoustic guitar. That’s not because of some flashy gimmick or crazy bargain price or because someone famous played it. Plenty of famous people have played it, in fact, but the reason why it sells so well year after year is the fact that it’s one of the best and most versatile acoustic guitars on the market. Hand-built with mahogany back and sides and a sitka spruce top with traditional hand-scalloped X-bracing, the J-45 Standard has excellent, balanced projection with a vast dynamic range, rich, warm low-end, and clear, articulate highs. An LR Baggs Element pickup system doesn’t hurt either. 

About Gibson Montana:
Luthier Orville Gibson founded the Gibson Mandolin-Guitar Mfg. Co. Ltd. in Kalamazoo, MI in 1902. Its original aim was to make mandolins and mandolin-family instruments. Over the last 100-plus years, Gibson Brands, Inc., as it is now known, has since evolved into the world’s premier manufacturer of semi-hollow and hollow body electric guitars, as well as a celebrated portfolio of innovative solid-body and acoustic models.

“Some people hear their own inner voices with great clearness. And they live by what they hear. Such people become crazy... or they become legend.” So wrote Montana author Jim Harrison, perhaps about the master luthiers of Gibson Montana, which produces all of Gibson’s acoustic guitars.
