Gibson J-45 Custom Koa Acoustic/Electric Sunset Burst Limited Edition

Gibson J-45 Custom Koa Acoustic/Electric Sunset Burst Limited Edition


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. This Limited Edition J-45 Custom Koa features a AA-grade Sitka spruce top for presence, while premium figured Koa adorns its back and sides. Other touches include hand-scalloped, radiused top bracing, herringbone binding, a tapered dovetail neck joint, abalone split diamond and Lucky Charm fretboard and bridge inlays, mother of pearl Custom headstock inlay and a double-ring rosette filled with abalone.

Rosewood Fingerboard with Rolled Edges

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 split diamond and Lucky Charm  inlays on the J-45 are made of genuine abalone, 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."

A really warm and rich sounding J45 with a regal look.
