This Limited Run Gibson J-45 Granadillo is an electro-acoustic guitar with the sublime look of granadillo back and sides plus an Amulet M pickup. This amazing guitar is one of teh best J-45s available today, and a true show-stopper for any performer.
The J-45 is Gibson's most popular model, with many different incarnations over the years and, in fact, with quite a few great, different models still available today. But this Grenadillo version is without a doubt one of the most special of the new lot.
This exclusive J-45 is handcrafted using a solid Sitka spruce top and, for the first time, granadillo back and sides. The smooth mahogany neck features our famous Slim Taper profile for comfort and ease in playability in each position up the neck, making it perfect for open first position chord strumming or delicate fingerstyle playing in any register.
For an added touch of elegance, the headstock is finished with a granadillo veneer, complementing the classic Grover gold tuners, which sport a superior gear ratio, making sure your instrument stays in tune. Matching granadillo is used for the fingerboard and bridge for full custom detail.
This limited edition is sure to stand out with an Autumn burst finish, a custom color used on exclusive instruments and developed for 2016 by our master luthiers in Bozeman. For plugged in playing, Trance Audio's Amulet MTM analog pickup system provides superbly accurate amplification of the guitar's natural acoustic tone. Classic J-45 appointments round out this limited edition, including a mother-of-pearl block Gibson logo, tortoise tear drop pickguard, and 1.725" black nut.
