From Our Research Team:
The Legendary Workhorse Has a New VoiceUntil you plug in the Gibson Acoustic J-45 PureVoice Custom acoustic-electric guitar, you don't know how pure acoustic amplification can sound. The PureVoice A3 electronics in the J-45 PureVoice Custom capture the essence of the J-45 tone, without the "quack" that you normally get from most under-saddle pickups - even when playing your hardest. And you'll immediately notice the incredibly low noise floor, exceptional dynamic range, and extremely wide frequency response of the Gibson Acoustic J-45 PureVoice Custom.
Of course, you also get Gibson's famous tone, projection, and playability in their most popular dreadnought guitar. Since 1942, the Gibson J-45 has been the first choice of countless guitarists, from blues to country to rock. You get the rich tone of a mahogany body topped with Red spruce, and excellent playability thanks to the rolled fingerboard edges. Appropriately nicknamed The Workhorse, the Gibson Acoustic J-45 PureVoice Custom acoustic-electric sounds beautiful in any setting.
Gibson Acoustic J-45 PureVoice Custom Acoustic-electric Guitar at a Glance:
PureVoice A3 electronics - over a decade in the making
The technology found in the PureVoice A3 pickup system has been in development since the mid-'90s, and the result is an amazingly natural and transparent acoustic amplification system. Two "acoustic lens" transducers are under the bridge, and each has its own preamplifier for maximum clarity and balance. A specially-designed low-cut filter takes out the low rumble you don't need, and preserves the richness that you want. And best of all, you won't hear the "quack" that is typical of most under-saddle transducers, even when you're really digging in.
Top-notch tonewood selection
Even if your acoustic guitar is frequently your entire backing band, you'll still feel right at home with the J-45 PureVoice Custom. Its mahogany back and sides provide exceptional warmth and powerful bass, whereas the red spruce top adds air to its treble range. This leaves the midrange open for your voice, so you aren't constantly fighting to sing over your guitar. Even if you don't play solo, you can't help but appreciate the J-45 PureVoice Custom's incredible tonal balance and notable definition.
World-famous Gibson handcraftsmanship means you'll have a great guitar for life
The J-45 PureVoice Custom is made true to the traditions that make Gibson guitars so prized among musicians and collectors alike. The dovetail neck-to-body joint takes longer and is more difficult to set than other methods, but Gibson still does this by hand with real hide glue to provide the best connection between neck and body possible. Factor in the hand-scalloped red spruce bracing, which directs your tone to the center of the Red spruce top, and you'll understand why the J-45 PureVoice Custom absolutely sings.

This Is Something Special
by Larry L. from MD, USAI gig 5-6 days a week, I have gigged for 35+ years, and have owned at least 100 good guitars in my lifetime, so I speak from experience. This is a very well made j45, and the electronics definitely s... read more [+]et it apart from the crowd.. As is the case with many great things, the evidence of greatness comes with the passage of a bit of time. I have owned this guitar for a month, and I find I don't want to use my other 12 acoustic guitars to play out. The Amulet based electronics are very transparent, with no coloration or artifacts, the EQ took a little getting used to, but it was well worth the effort, and its use quickly became seamless. I was used to Fishman, which sounds great, but less natural. Strangely, the naturalness of the Gibson electronics took a brief time to adjust my ears to, kind of in the same way one develops a taste for a fine single malt scotch after drinking Bud for years. If you acquire this superior instrument, give it a chance to become your number one live guitar, because if you do, I assure you it will. May I add that my salesperson Kent was very helpful in directing me towards this wonderful guitar. close [-]
