Gibson Limited Edition J-45 Koa
J-45s are some of Gibson's most consistent performers, and this limited-edition version is even more special, with its figured koa back and sides. Not only gorgeous to look at—this might be one of the nicest-sounding koa Gibsons we've had in the store!
The top is solid Sitka Spruce—an excellent tonal match for the koa body. And we can vouch for the rich, balanced sound of this guitar (not always the case with newer koa guitars). It has plenty of bass to go with punchy mids and clear highs. It has that beautiful bark that makes Gibson round-shoulder jumbos so unique.
The mahogany neck has a beautifully grained rosewood fingerboard with abalone snowflake inlays. An LR Baggs VTC pickup lets you plug and play, making this the right guitar for any venue. A Gibson hardshell case is included.
