J-45 Custom

A Rosewood sister to the legendary Gibson J-45 acoustic guitar. 

The Gibson J-45 is an iconic mahogany bodied guitar which heaps of character. Since Mahogany is not for everyone, Gibson introduced a Rosewood bodied version of their legendary J-45 : The J-45 Custom. Gibson pampered the J-45 Custom with TUSQ nut and saddle for heathy sustain and overtones, LR Baggs VTC for a great stage sound, and abalone inlays and herringbone binding for the looks. The guitar is hand built at the Gibson factory in Bozeman, Montana.
