The Gibson J-45 acoustic guitar can be heard across decades of recordings in the hands of country stars, folk legends, singer-songwriters and solo instrumentalists. It is one of America's most iconic acoustic guitars. Its sloped shoulders and more mellow tone set it apart from Martin's legendary dreadnoughts. Those exact quirks are the reason so many have fallen in love with the Gibson J-45. Vintage specimens (especially pre-1970) are incredibly collectible, while more modern specimens are studio and touring favorites of working musicians.

    I have two J-45s and I love them both. The sound is a J-45 sound and that's about all anybody needs to say about it. The two I have are a 1999 J-45 Custom Natural and a 2015 J-45 Gala Limited Ebony. I am amazed at how different they are in some ways, and how alike in others. Needless to say, the…
