"The Workhorse" features choice tonewoods for incredible tone

Known as "The Workhorse," the Gibson J-45 body style is among Gibson's most beloved. It's a tried and true standard onstage and in studios worldwide. This particular workhorse features Gibson's Min-ETune system for quick and accurate tuning, and a superb blend of tonewoods, giving you rich, strong sound - day-in, day-out. The J45 Min-ETune features a solide Sitka spruce top for presence, while pattern-grade mahogany adorns its back and sides. Other touches include hand-scalloped, radiused top bracing, a tapered dovetail neck joint, and a single-ring rosette with three-ply binding.

Min-ETune helps you broaden your range as a guitarist

We know you already know how to tune your guitar, but that's not what the Gibson J45's Min-ETune system is all about. Sure, it's a handy time saver, but the real power is in the alternate tunings. When's the last time you were in a musical slump? Did you try an alternate guitar tuning for some fresh inspiration? With the ability to re-tune your J45 Min-ETune to DADGAD, Open D, or any other alternate tuning in seconds, you'll have no reason not to experiment in new musical ways. Sweetwater knows that changing tunings in concert can be time consuming and boring. The Gibson J45 Min-ETune will take seconds instead of minutes to re-tune when you're ready to perform.

LR Baggs Element Active Acoustic Pickup System

The J45 Min-ETune comes with LR Baggs's popular Element Active Acoustic Pickup System, which features a low-profile undersaddle transducer that's proven more stable and durable than many standard ribbon-type pickups. Combined with an onboard preamplifier with an unobtrusive and removable volume control, mounted just inside the soundhole, the Element is a tremendous performer. Its sleek and effective design removes unnecessary internal components to enhance the coupling between the pickup and the guitar and improve the sensitivity of the transducer for a robust, lively, and natural acoustic sound with excellent dynamics and delicate high end. The Element works with a standard 9V battery, which is housed inside the guitar in L.R. Bagg's new "Battery Bagg."
