Showcase Series: The Gibson J-45 True Vintage


Brosguitars - This is not just a "guitar". This is THE guitar. Used on probably more recordings than any other guitar The Gibson J-45 True vintage is a masterpiece of a professional-grade instrument.

Played by the likes of Donovan, John Lennon, Bob Dylan, Buddy Holly, Pink Anderson the list does not end of legends who have played this guitar.

The intonation is perfect all the way up the fretboard. The sound of the mahogany plus the red spruce top, is so dynamic and vibrant, that I feel as if the wavelengths emitting from this guitar are creeping into my nervous system whenever I play. A simple major chord played with this guitar is transformed into a 3-dimensional sound, with feeling.

One of the things that makes this guitar so special and a real True Vintage is that the top and bracings are made from Adirondack Spruce. This used to be the go to option for Gibson but during the World Wars they switch to a west coast spruce. As a result only True Vintage line guitars have the wood quality of the original Gibson's from the 1940's. Check out this demo below!
