A detailed reissue of a unique 1959 J-45

Like the Gibson Custom's Collector's Choice Les Pauls, the Gibson Acoustic J-45 "The '59" is a detailed reissue of an original 1959 J-45 owned by Mr. Ikemori of Japan. Every inch of the guitar was measured and examined to create this unique guitar. The fatter, semi-V-shaped neck is extremely comfortable and has a vibe that only worn-in guitars offer. To simulate the yellowing of an old nitrocellulose finish, Gibson heavily antiqued its stunning Triburst finish. Gibson Acoustic's J-45 "The '59" guitar is a reissue that delivers vintage vibe and tone suitable for any musician or collector. This is the perfect acoustic companion to your '59 Les Paul.

Top-notch tonewood selection and bracing

The top of the Gibson J-45 "The '59" acoustic guitar is made from premium-grade spruce, while the back and sides are constructed from high-end mahogany. This gives the J-45 "The '59" the same full, balanced sound and projection that earned the original J-45's reputation. This limited-edition J-45 features the same modified X-bracing pattern as the original 1942 J-45 model. It adds an extra punch and fullness to this collectible Gibson guitar.
