The G-45 is equipped with a Gibson Player Port. The Player Port is an original Gibson concept from the early 1960s that has been refined by Gibson's acoustic luthier team to deliver a truly revolutionary sonic improvement that adds a new dimension to the sound. The Gibson Player Port allows you to hear the guitar as you're playing it like you've never heard it before -- the same way your audience hears it -- maximizing the sonic impact for an immersive playing and listening experience.

Join us as we take the Gibson Generation Series for a test drive:

The G-45 is part of the Generation Collection. Like all models in this collection, it is made in Bozeman, MT, by the same highly skilled craftspeople who make all Gibson acoustics. It features a solid Sitka spruce top and solid walnut back and sides for tone that sounds crisp and resonant. You'll find that the slightly thinner round shoulder body is exceptionally comfortable to hold and play. The TUSQ nut and saddle, along with the Grover Mini Rotomatic tuners deliver solid tuning stability so you can spend more time playing instead of tuning, and the utile neck with its easy-playing Advanced Response neck prole is so comfortable you won't want to put it down. A gig bag is also included.

I bought this guitar because I have a 2020 G-45 Studio that is my main acoustic guitar and thought the ebony upgrade was worth a try. Honestly I can't put it down, the "player port" is really cool because you can hear your playing more clearly. The neck and ebony fretboard is comcomfortable the other G-45 has a walnut fretboard already the ebony feels faster and smoother. The wood grain and finish are stellar.The soft case is top notch and a welcoming addition with my other G-45 hardshell case was a beast (around 30 lbs) this has all the pockets pouches and straps you need with the protection as well, its a great case. The 2020 G-45 had Fishman electronics and the 2021 has no electronics. I feel like its an upgrade, I prefer to mic up. It's a nice modern take on a classic you might be able to find other guitars in the price range and I mostly bought it because of the ebony fretboard and the soft bag.If you like Gibson Acoustics you'll enjoy this one for sure.
