Gibson J-45 Custom Rosewood Vintage Sunburst Lefty

Gibson J-45 Custom Rosewood Vintage Sunburst Lefty


Known as "The Workhorse," the Gibson J-45 body style is among Gibson's most beloved. This particular workhorse sits at the top of Gibson's J-45 line, and features a superb blend of tonewoods, giving you rich, strong sound - day-in, day-out. The J-45 Custom features a AA-grade Sitka spruce top for presence, while premium Indian rosewood adorns its back and sides. Other touches include hand-scalloped, radiused top bracing, herringbone binding, a tapered dovetail neck joint, and a double-ring rosette filled with abalone.

Rosewood Fingerboard with Rolled Edges and Dot Inlays

The Gibson J-45 Custom's 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, making way for a balanced and stable fingerboard, and giving each chord and note enhanced clarity and bite. The dot inlays on the J-45 are made of genuine mother of pearl, and are added to the fingerboard using a special Gibson process that eliminates gaps and doesn't require fillers. What's more, the J-45 Custom's fingerboard boasts a rolled edge that's lightly beveled, which enhances the instrument's smooth playability.

L.R. Baggs Element Active Acoustic Pickup System

The J-45 Custom comes with L.R. Baggs's popular Element Active Acoustic Pickup System, which features a low-profile undersaddle transducer that's proven more stable and durable than many standard ribbon-type pickups. Combined with an onboard preamplifier with an unobtrusive and removable volume control, mounted just inside the soundhole, the Element is a tremendous performer. 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. The Element works with a standard 9V battery, which is housed inside the guitar in L.R. Bagg's new "Battery Bagg."

Round Shoulder Style

Descending from Gibson's large HG Hawaiian guitar in 1929, and the original "Jumbo," introduced in 1934, Round Shoulder Dreadnoughts are steeped in Gibson tradition and lauded for their pure, rich tones, and impressive volume. With smooth lines, and a curvaceous shape, Round Shoulder style guitars invite a close relationship with their respective guitarists: their body shape makes these guitars easier to hold and more comfortable to wrap your arms around.
