This progressive "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 features a superb blend of tonewoods, giving you rich, strong sound - day-in, day-out. The J-45 Progressive features a Sitka spruce top for presence, while quality 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.

Exceptionally smooth playability

The J-45 Progressive has a comfortable neck profile that feels at home in your hand whether you're playing chords or single-note lines. As you play your way up the Richlite fretboard, you'll definitely appreciate the smooth feel of the rolled fingerboard edges. With a neck that plays this smooth, and with the added convenience of a cutaway, you'll be able to play longer with less fatigue.

G-Force automatic tuning system delivers perfect intonation - and more

Thanks to Gibson's updated G-Force tuning system, not only can you tune your Gibson Acoustic J-45 Progressive guitar with a single strum, but you can also make use of alternate tunings without having to retune or switch guitars. You can also calibrate your guitar to an external source. Say you have a vintage piano that's not quite tuned to A440. Now, thanks to G-Force, the piano and your guitar can play together beautifully with no tuning hassles.

Get spot-on acoustic tones with the Lyric pressure zone microphone system

When you're ready to plug in and perform, you'll be glad the Gibson Acoustic J-45 Progressive is equipped with the LR Baggs Lyric pressure zone microphone system. The next step in LR Baggs's Tru Mic technology, the Lyric microphone introduces several new patented technologies, including a unique noise-cancellation system that eliminates the boxiness associated with under-saddle acoustic guitar mics, while conveying the sweet highs and powerful low end you'd expect from an external microphone. Lots of Sweetwater employees are gigging guitarists, and any of them will confirm you'll be amazed at the sound of this innovative mic system.

Gibson Acoustic J-45 Progressive Acoustic-electric Guitar Features:
  • A gig-ready J-45 with progressive appointments
  • Gibson's G-Force tuning system lets you switch tunings with the press of a button
