The J 45, often called the 'workhorse', a guitar that caught my attention many years ago, and the dream was to someday own a Gibson J 200 and/or a J 45. I bought my first 6-string in 1951 (Harmony), my first Gibson in 1976, then in 1991 my Wife's Christmas gift to me was a beautiful J 200. In 2016 we finally added the subject J 45. No doubt, a beauty to play, to look at, and to hear. BUT, it did not measure up to the J 200. By now we were interested in adding other brands of acoustics to our small collection, and the WORKHORSE served as another bargaining tool, enabling us to acquire Martin, Seagull, Fender, etc. CONCLUSION: $3000 for the J 45 was too high a price tag when comparing overall playability to our $1100 Martins, $800 Seagulls, etc.

My Father plays this in a local folk music group called Larry and a cup of Joes. This guitar is so crisp and excellent sounding. One of my favorite guitars.

I was searching for a d-28 And just picked up a 2016 j-45 just for an overall sound comparison. Ended up picking up the j-45 a couple day later after trying out a few more. I,m a little woried using my usual medium gauge strings. The top just seems kind light and fragile to me. I guess time will tell. The entire guitar just shakes and resonates every time I strum it. Sounds deep balanced and woody...I love it!

Bought it August 2016 (actually traded our J 35), which we owned for approx. two years. Always felt J 35 was a 'wann-a-be' Workhorse. At this point, we like everything about J 45 2016 but we've learned to wait at least a year before declaring a guitar to be 'at, less, or more' then expected. We'll be back.
