Classic Cutaway Acoustic from Gibson
Continuing their legendary J-45 line of acoustic guitars, Gibson offers the J-45 Rosewood in a cutaway for players who like to get farther up the neck. The J-45 Avant Garde Rosewood is a classic round-shoulder, dreadnought-style acoustic that, despite its cutaway design, still brings that amazing projection you would expect from a full-sized J-45. With a Sitka spruce top, rosewood back and sides, and beautiful mahogany neck, the J-45 Avant Garde Rosewood delivers warm, deep acoustic tone that can fill a room even when unplugged. For those times when you do need to plug in, the J-45 Avant Garde Rosewood has a killer LR Baggs Element pickup installed, giving you outstanding amplified tone. Many acoustic players are highly impressed with the Gibson Acoustic J-45 Avant Garde Rosewood, and know that you will, too.
Hand-selected North American tonewoods for amazing tone
The heart of any good acoustic guitar is the wood that is used to build it. Gibson cuts no corners on choosing the tonewoods that make up their distinguished line of guitars. Carefully selected Sitka spruce is used for the top of the J-45 Rosewood, giving it a solid foundation for the brighter mid-range and treble tones. Meanwhile, the rosewood back and sides provide the warmer, lower tones. Traditional scalloped X-bracing on the inside of the J-45 Rosewood further enhances the overall tone of this acoustic.
Exceptionally smooth playability
The Gibson Acoustic J-45 Avant Garde Rosewood has an advanced response neck profile that feels at home in your hand whether you’re playing chords or single-note leads. As you play your way up the neck, you’ll also appreciate the smooth feel of the 12″-radius rosewood fingerboard. 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.
Amazing sound onstage
The Gibson Acoustic J-45 Avant Garde Rosewood comes with LR Baggs Element electronics, a popular choice among guitarists. This system features a low-profile under-saddle transducer that enhances the coupling between the pickup and the guitar for a robust, lively, and natural acoustic sound. With an unobtrusive volume control mounted just inside the soundhole, the Element gives your J-45 Rosewood the amplification you need, with zero compromises in tone or convenience.
