Overall: I've owned and played Taylor 210E and a Takamine EF341SC. Loved them both. The J45 is now the best guitar I've owned. It's my first Gibson acoustic guitar. Glad it found me!

zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Overall: I have owned Taylor, Martin, Breedlove, Yamaha and other off brand acoustic electric guitars for over 40 years. However, I have never owned a Gibson up until now. I was researching this Gibson and the Yamaha A5R Acoustic-Electric. I read many great reviews about the Yamaha, which is hard to find in stock anywhere because of its popularity. However, something kept drawing me towards the Gibson. And boy am I happy I purchased it. It sounds pretty darn good unplugged and is comfortable to hold while playing in a sitting position. The string action right out of the box was absolutely PERFECT! That does not happen very often at all. The neck size is spot on for my extra large hands and fingers. The tuners turn like butter and tuned the strings with ease. In addition, the strings stay tuned for quite some time while playing. And then it got even better after I plugged it into my hand-wired Vox all-tube amp. Sounded absolutely fantastic! And I love the hidden electric controls inside the sound hole. Only two controls... volume and tone. Just the way I like it. Super simple yet very effective. I will have to do some more research as ZZounds.com product description does not identify the size of the strings nor did I see anything from Gibson. Other than that, this is an absolutely beautiful guitar that plays even better than it looks. And the price is right. I paid more for my Taylor 300 series and in my opinion, this Gibson outplays that guitar all day long.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as you Pay® installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as you Pay® plans.
