Unparalleled Sound Quality with Thermal-Aging Process
Using the thermal-aging process, also called torrefaction, Gibson removes all moisture and impurities that are found in their gathered tonewoods. This gives the Banner 1942 J-45 a blessedly-aged sound that's full, opulent, and well balanced throughout - one unlike any other acoustic out there. All these effects will improve with time! On top of all this, torrefaction makes this vintage build surprisingly durable and resistant to wear.
