Gibson Limited Edition J45 Granadillo

Sublime look of granadillo back and sides plus an Amulet M pickup. 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 the 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 a burst finish, a color used on exclusive instruments and developed for 2016 by Gibson's master luthiers in Bozeman. For plugged in playing, Trance Audio's Amulet M 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.

Features:

- This limited edition is offered with the unique look and sound of granadillo back and sides
- Outfitted with a supreme Amulet M pickup for amplified playing. The Trance Audio's Amulet M analog pickup system provides superbly accurate amplification of the guitar's natural acoustic tone
- Gibson Acoustic "breaks" or "rolls" the edges of the fingerboard into the curve of the neck profile for a sublimely comfortable playing feel
- The use of finer grit sandpaper and polishing compounds in a laborious hand-rubbed process results in a smoother high-gloss finish
- Plek system is used for final setup on all Gibson Acoustic guitars, for an unparalleled playing feel
- Deeper penetrating oils hand-rubbed into critical wood components yield smoother and more durable fingerboards and bridges
- Grover tuners are supremely efficient, and look great in their gold plating

Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (4 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Could Not Be Happier"
Overall: They made 75. I'm so happy that I managed to get one of them! The craftsmanship is everything that you would expect from the Gibson custom shop. The finish is absolutely beautiful! The action is smooth and consistent throughout the entire fretboard. When it arrived the first thing I did was check the intonation. Not one click off from an open string to the 12th fret on every string. If your strobe tuner registers perfect D on the 4th string open it says exactly the same at 12. That impressed the heck out of me. The tone is extremely balanced and smooth. The Trace pickup system is awesome. through the bands big PA or my Bose L1 model 2 it dials in easily and sounds great without having to use a pre-amp. It is also very balanced tone-wise. Not my first high-end acoustic. I have a Breedlove from the custom shop and a Guild D55. I love both of them but this girl cost me less than either and might very well become my favorite acoustic. I have purchased many high dollar items from zZounds over the past ten years and have never had anything other than excellent results and service.
Style of Music: Acoustic rock, folk, blues, country, classic rock, alternative. Favorite to play is James Taylor and Clapton unplugged.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "USA! USA! USA!"
Overall: What a magnificent instrument. Upon receipt, spent several hours staring at it intently, unable to break my gaze long enough to muster the courage to remove it from the case. After much careful consideration, I decided it best to attempt to play it. Sound explodes out of it, but really smoothly. Like, if a sherbet plant blew up. Very mellow, warm tone. Expert craftsmanship. Also, it smells like a leisurely walk through the forest of one's choosing. Buy one, or several if you can afford to. I for one had to take a second mortgage on the trailer I share with 4 generations of my family, but since this purchase is gonna lead to my big break none of them argued. But in all seriousness, this is a serious instrument at a fair price. And a limited edition, at that. I can't imagine any serious acoustic guitar enthusiast being disappoint in this beautiful instrument for any reason.
Style of Music: Americana, Folk, Punk Rock, Stoner Metal, Rockabilly, etc.
