It was 1942, and Gibson had set out to make a sturdy, reliable guitar that embodied the spirit of music while keeping things simple and straightforward. Enter the Gibson J-45, a round-shoulder dreadnought acoustic aptly nicknamed 'The Workhorse.' For over 75 years, the J-45 has stood as a Gibson top-seller and as one of the most popular acoustic guitars in history, guided by its robust build and tone. The list of iconic performers who have been associated with the J-45 is a long and constantly growing one - Woody Guthrie, Bob Dylan, John Lennon, James Taylor, David Gilmour, Aimee Mann, Brad Paisley are just a few of the musicians who put their creative trust into the instrument. The Gibson J-45's smooth bottom end and crisp highs combine with its muscular projection for an instrument this is equally at home in the studio as it is on the stage.
