The Gibson J-45 Standard 2019 is made from premium tonewoods which gives the guitar a rich, resonant, and full-bodied sound that only gets better with age. Gibson have used the best possible materials to ensure a sublime tone and superior resonance, perfect for professional performance and recording. The J-45 Standard features a sitka spruce top that delivers a broad dynamic range and yields a crisp, articulate tone. Its sitka spruce top offers a sparkling high response and a tight, clear attack, perfect for pronounced players. In addition, the J-45's sonically-versatile top is accompanied by mahogany back and sides which produce a resonant, distinct-warmth. Additionally, used as back and side panels, the mahogany projects a superb mid-range, producing punchy, woody tones with plenty of depth and complexity to please most playing styles. This sonically-pleasing mixture of tonewoods is well-known among guitarists as the 'classic' acoustic sound, providing versatility, warmth, and resonance with a powerful response, perfect for a wide range of genres and techniques.
Constructed from mahogany, the J-45's neck offers a quick and dynamic response with added warmth and resonance. 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. For added comfort, the neck features a slimmer profile, offering easier playability. Its slim taper neck also gives you a better grip, accommodating past-paced playing styles with ease. In addition, the neck is topped with a rosewood fingerboard that adds clarity and a pleasing warmth to the guitar's overall sound whilst providing a smooth playing experience. Furthermore, the fingerboard is graced with mother of pearl dot inlays, adding elegance to its already premium appearance.
The Gibson J-45 Standard features an iconic round shoulder dreadnought body, which provides plenty of projection and maintains overall tonal balance. The dreadnought shape was originally designed for hard pick attack. However through years of superb craftsmanship, Gibson have created a stunningly toned, well-balanced dreadnought voice that can handle many genres and styles of play with equal ease. 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.
As with many of Gibson's acoustic range, the J-45 Standard 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 Standard 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.
