The Legendary Workhorse Has a New Voice
Until 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:

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

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.Gibson Acoustic J-45 PureVoice Custom Acoustic-electric Guitar Features:
