J-45 Standard
The J-45 is one of Gibsons best-selling acoustics of all time. Nicknamed The Workhorse and first introduced in 1942, this popular acoustic is now the icon of its round-shoulder, dreadnought line.

Nicest Lefty I've Played

Product Experience I've tried it Closest Store Nanaimo British Columbia
I'm new to guitars. Just started to learn how to play about 3 years ago. But I've learned to tell the difference a higher end guitar can make. That said, I don't claim to be any sort of connoisseur when it comes to guitars yet, but I do recognize quality. This guitar is beautiful and I'm so pleased to see it as a lefty model. I already own a Gibson Goldtop reissue and I'm very happy with that. Playing this J-45 was a wonderful experience for me especially as a lefty. I'm tempted to buy it. It's even more tempting because this the only store in BC that has this one at the moment.
