With a combination of high-quality sitka spruce and walnut, the J-45 Studio 2019 offers a rich, clear sound that will only get better with age. In addition, you can achieve a broad dynamic range with plenty of sustain and clear harmonics with ease. Its premium sitka spruce top generates an incredibly versatile tone with crisp articulation and a broad range of dynamics. Sitka spruce is widely used for guitar tops, offering a powerful and distinctive tone with a versatile response. This allows you to achieve a wide variety of genres and playing styles from country and pop to rock and blues. Additionally, the J-45's top is accompanied by walnut back and sides, delivering a strong, clear, fundamental.

The Gibson J-45 Studio 2019 features an iconic round shoulder dreadnought body, which provides plenty of projection and maintains overall tonal balance. The sheer volume the J-45 can project makes it ideal for the singer/songwriter. Vocalists can really push their diaphragm to the max and not feel too loud against the guitar's volume - it will sing as loud as you do. The J-45 is also world renowned for its full, yet balanced expression, as well as its warm bass and excellent projection. The round shoulder body delivers an impeccable dynamic range, warm mids, and tight punchy bass. Lastly, the J-45's round shoulders not only offer an elegant aesthetic, but provide the J-45 with a mellow mid-range focus - perfect for players of all styles and techniques.
Constructed from mahogany, the J-45 Studio's neck offers a rich, resonant sound with a quick, dynamic response. Mahogany's sonic-footprint falls on the warmer end of the tonal spectrum, whilst its nature allows it to respond superbly to numerous playing styles and techniques. This makes it perfect for unleashing your true creativity and provides a sonically pleasing tone in response. Additionally, the mahogany neck features an advanced response profile, which has a flatter fingerboard radius, allowing you to achieve string bends with ease. The smooth playing neck is topped with a walnut fingerboard that not only offers a pleasing aesthetic but provides a balanced, unique earthy tone. Traditional mother of pearl dot inlays are also sprinkled across the fingerboard, offering elegance with a traditional acoustic appearance.
As with many of Gibson's acoustic range, the J-45 Studio 2019 comes fitted with traditional hand scalloped X-bracing. This specific type of bracing structure consists of two braces forming an 'X' shape across the soundboard which not only enhances the sound and offers a well-balanced tone, but also provides a reinforced stable and durable structure. Furthermore, with traditional hand scalloped X-bracing the Hummingbird's tone is enhanced beautifully, providing superior projection and volume for a truly expressive sound.
The Gibson J-45 Studio comes equipped with a subtle soundhole mounted pickup, offering both volume and tone control, ideal for the professional gigging musician. The revolutionary electronics from LR Baggs are designed to capture the same dynamics of a guitar that has been mic'd up in a studio environment. Additionally, the LR Baggs VTC features analog warmth which enhances sonic-character and harmonic content. Phase inversion also ensures quality of sound and feedback control. This subtle yet sophisticated pickup system provides an idyllic setup for singer/songwriter and professional performance, offering quick and easy plug-in-and-play for rehearsal and studio environments.
