Tonewoods of the Highest Caliber for This Workhorse Top-quality tonewoods and craftsmanship give the J-45 Standard its expressive sound, projection, and superior feel. The guitar's top is constructed of AA-grade Sitka spruce, while the back and sides are made from pattern-grade Honduras mahogany. Simple yet sweet, the rosette on the J-45 Standard is a single ring consisting of three-ply binding. Rounding out the instrument is a fingerboard made of high-grade rosewood, along with dot inlays made of pretty mother-of-pearl.
Grover Tuners at Your Service The J-45 is equipped with nickel Grover Rotomatic tuners for precision tuning and performance. To prevent slippage, all moving parts are cut for exact meshing, and a countersunk tension screw lets you control the tuning tension to any degree. The Rotomatics get their smooth, accurate tuning stability from a special lubricant inside the gear box.
X-Braced for Great Acoustic Projection Slightly different than other Gibson acoustic guitars, the J-45 Standard has a variation of the company's X bracing design situated behind the sound hole, with a set of thin, tall braces for the back and scalloped thin, tall braces for the top. Thanks to this bracing pattern, you get a guitar that delivers a balanced expression with punchy, deep lows, warm mids, and clear, crisp highs. This instrument is ideal for any guitarist wanting a natural, open, musically robust sound.
Baggs Active Acoustic Pickup System The J-45 Standard comes standard with the L.R. Baggs Element active acoustic pickup system featuring a solid, low-profile undersaddle element (or transducer) that many say are more stable than most ribbon-type pickups. To deliver unrivaled performance from an undersaddle pickup, the Element works alongside an onboard preamp with a removable volume control mounted just inside the sound hole. According to Gibson, the system's sleek and effective design removes unnecessary internal components to enhance the coupling between the pickup and the guitar, as well as improve the sensitivity of the transducer for a robust, lively, and natural acoustic sound with excellent dynamics and delicate high end. It's powered by a standard 9V battery housed inside the J-45 Standard in L.R. Baggs' Battery Bagg.
