    Nickel Grover Rotomatic Tuners
    Grover’s original Rotomatic tuners are an engineering marvel, with abundant style and performance exactly suited for the J45. With a gear ratio of 14:1, the Rotomatics deliver precision tuning in a durable housing that provides maximum protection for the gear and string post. All moving parts are cut for exact meshing, eliminating the possibility of slippage. A countersunk tension screw lets players regulate the tuning tension to any degree. A special lubricant inside the gear box provides smooth and accurate tuning stability.

    Body Tonewoods (back, sides and top)
    The top of the J45 is made from AA-grade Sitka spruce, while the back and sides are constructed from pattern grade Honduras mahogany, giving world renowned full, balanced expression, warm bass, and excellent projection.

    Pickguard
    The pickguard is Gibson’s standard plain tortoise tear drop shape, which has been used on the J45 since its introduction in 1942. As with all of Gibson’s pickguards, the coloring, inlay, and binding are all done by hand.

    Rosette
    The rosette on the J45 is a simple single-ring rosette consisting of three-ply binding, adding a stylish, understated elegance.

    Rosewood Fingerboard with Rolled Edges and Dot Inlays
    The fingerboard of Gibson’s J45 is constructed from the highest grade rosewood on earth, which is personally inspected and qualified by Gibson’s team of skilled experts before it enters the Gibson factories. The resilience of this durable wood makes the fingerboard extremely balanced and stable, and gives each chord and note unparalleled clarity and bite.

    The J45’s dot inlays are made of genuine mother of pearl, measuring approximately 1/4 inch in diameter, and are inserted into the fingerboard using a process that eliminates gaps and doesn’t require the use of fillers. The fingerboard also sports a rolled edge, instead of the usual right angle where the fingerboard surface meets the neck, Gibson Acoustic’s rolled edges are slightly beveled for an extremely smooth and comfortable feel, enhancing playability.

    L.R. Baggs Element Active Acoustic Pickup System
    Gibson Acoustic’s J45 comes equipped with the popular Element Active Acoustic Pickup System from L.R. Baggs, which features a low-profile undersaddle element, or transducer, that’s proven more stable and durable than many standard ribbon-type pickups.

    Combined with an onboard preamp with an unobtrusive and removable volume control mounted just inside the soundhole, the Element delivers incredible performance. Its sleek and effective design removes unnecessary internal components to enhance the coupling between the pickup and the guitar for a robust, lively, and natural acoustic sound with excellent dynamics. The Element works with a standard 9V battery, which is housed inside the guitar in L.R. Bagg’s new Battery Bagg.

    Bracing
    The J45 features a variation of Gibson’s X bracing pattern situated behind the soundhole, with a set of tall and thin braces for the back, and scalloped tall and thin braces for the top. This legendary bracing design delivers a balanced expression, with punchy, deep lows, warm mids, and clear, crisp highs. When pushed for more volume, the J45 projects a natural compression, which helps it blend nicely with any accompaniment.

    What is your opinion of this product?
    This guitar is like one of those girls that when you first started dating you just were not sure about. At first, she was really hot, seemed to be the girl everyone wanted, great smile, flirty, etc. However, when she talked she sounded like a chipmunk on quaaludes making you wish you would have admired her from afar. Then, a few years later, you see her again and something has changed. The voice is like an angel from heaven. She takes you to the bedroom and, my god, it is the most amazing thing you ever experienced. She does not even mind when you spill beer on her. So You propose to her. Marry her. Spend the rest of your life with her. That my friends is this guitar to me. Seriously, the guitar is special. It is interesting though because for the money you see some higher end Taylors and Martins that make you think you are getting so much more for the same price, but in truth sometimes simple is better. As in this case. Gibson should spring for bone nut and saddle.

    If you're a gigging musician, buy this guitar.
    Your general opinion of this product.
    I've never written a review before, on anything. I just had to write this one because I haven't been able to find a review anywhere that focuses on the sound of the guitar for solo/band performance. I love a good sounding acoustic, but I make my money plugging it in, not on my couch. I'm a die-hard Taylor player of almost 20 years. But since the ES, I've been trying to find something to gig with that sounds as natural as possible. This is it. Out of the box and plugged in this thing sounds almost as good as it does acoustically.
