This big-bodied, round-shouldered dreadnought is built in the image of the legendary 1942 J45 Legend Model, from the classic tonewood combination of solid Adirondack Red Spruce top and solid mahogany back and sides. Its top is supported by original 1942-spec red spruce scalloped X-bracing bonded by hide glue, a structure and design known for its superior strength and resonance. To top it off, a hand-sprayed nitrocellulose lacquer custom early 1960’s style Cherry Sunburst finish, elegant multi-ply top binding and single-ply back binding, and a tortoiseshell pickguard with paisley engraving ensure the Brad Paisley Model looks just as sublime as it sounds.
Neck and Headstock
The guitar’s neck and headstock are custom made much in the tradition of the original J45, with the 24 3/4 inches scale length as featured on several classic Gibson flat-tops. Carved from a single piece of quarter-sawn mahogany to Brad Paisley’s preferred Modified V
profile, and topped with a rosewood fingerboard, the design incorporates Gibson’s lauded 17-degree back-angled headstock, which contributes greatly to the instrument’s resonance and sustain, and the narrower dimensions of 1.625 inches at the nut, as specified by Paisley himself. The headstock is adorned with the pre-War Gibson
logo with the banner
emblem across the center of its face.
The Brad Paisley Model carries an up-market hardware set, including custom hand-made vintage-style nickel tuners with cream buttons, and belly-up rosewood bridge with traditional bridge pins and bone saddle.
The Brad Paisley Model comes protected with a Gibson hardshell case with blue plush lining and includes an owner’s manual and Gold Warranty.
