Gibson's Premier J-45 Workhorse

The Gibson J-45 Mystic Rosewood Custom Run acoustic-electric guitar sits at the top of Gibson's top-selling J-45 "The Workhorse" line, first introduced in 1942. This round-shoulder, dreadnought acoustic guitar is known for its full, balanced expression, its warm bass, and its excellent projection, much of which came through subtle changes to the bracing of its forefather, the J-35. The J-45 Mystic Rosewood Custom Run features all that rich tone, thanks to its AA-grade Sitka spruce top and rosewood body. And, for unbelievable onstage tone, there's a premier LR Baggs Element active pickup system installed on the Gibson J-45 Mystic Rosewood Custom Run.

"The Workhorse" features choice tonewoods for incredible tone

Known as "The Workhorse," the Gibson J-45 body style is among Gibson's most beloved. This particular workhorse sits at the top of Gibson's J-45 line and features a superb blend of tonewoods, giving you rich, strong sound day in, day out. The J-45 Mystic Rosewood Custom Run features a AA-grade Sitka spruce top for presence, while premium Indian rosewood adorns its back and sides. Other touches include hand-scalloped, radiused top bracing, herringbone binding, a tapered dovetail neck joint, and a double-ring rosette filled with abalone.

Rosewood fingerboard with rolled edges and dot inlays

The Gibson J-45 Mystic Rosewood Custom Run's fingerboard comprises high-grade rosewood, which is personally inspected and qualified by Gibson experts before it enters the Gibson factories. It's a resilient and durable wood, for a balanced and stable fingerboard. It also gives each chord and note enhanced clarity and bite. The dot inlays on the J-45 are made of genuine abalone and are added to the fingerboard by a special Gibson process that eliminates gaps and doesn't require fillers. What's more, the J-45 Mystic Rosewood Custom Run's fingerboard boasts a rolled edge that's lightly beveled, which enhances the instrument's smooth playability.

LR Baggs Element active acoustic pickup system

The J-45 Mystic Rosewood Custom Run comes with LR Baggs's popular Element active acoustic pickup system, which features a low-profile undersaddle transducer that has 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, effective design removes unnecessary internal components to enhance the coupling between the pickup and the guitar. It also improves 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 LR Bagg's innovative "Battery Bagg."

Round Shoulder style

Descending from Gibson's large HG Hawaiian guitar in 1929 and the original "Jumbo" in 1934, Round Shoulder dreadnoughts are steeped in Gibson tradition and lauded for their pure, rich tones and impressive volume. With smooth lines and a curvaceous shape, Round Shoulder style guitars invite a close relationship with their respective guitarists: their body shape makes these guitars easier to hold and more comfortable to wrap your arms around.

Classic Gibson craftsmanship

Gibson's reputation as a fine guitar builder dates back to the late 1800s. Handcrafted since day one by some of the most skilled luthiers around, Gibson acoustic guitars have inspired countless players around the world. When you pick up a Gibson acoustic, you know you're getting the finest tonewoods, quality hardware, and incredible attention to detail. These instruments are built to sound great and stand the test of time. After moving from Kalamazoo, Michigan, to Nashville, Tennessee (where Gibson electric guitars continue to be made), Gibson finally settled their acoustic operation in Bozeman, Montana, where they continue to make some of the finest guitars on the planet by hand.
