Gibson Limited-Edition 1960s J-45 Burgundy

Here’s a rare deal on a nearly-new, 2016 Limited-Edition 1960s-style  Gibson J-45 in a beautiful burgundy finish. Purchased here in our store last year, it was traded recently on another Gibson. This easy-playing, great-sounding classic is in excellent (near-mint) condition, with only the slightest cosmetic wear—and it’s collectible, one of only 75 made. 

If you’re not familiar with this slope-shouldered workhorse of the Gibson lineup, the J-45 has been around since 1942 and is considered by many to be an essential member of any serious player’s arsenal. Sitka spruce top over mahogany sides/back give it the perfect balance of presence and warmth. The J-45 produces plenty of low end punch, but not at the expense of mids and highs—perfect for recording and live use.

The 24 3/4” scale makes the J-45 a bit easier to play than many square-shouldered dreadnoughts, but with no loss of power, and an included LR Baggs Element pickup delivers more volume when you need it. The rare burgundy finish and ’60s-era white pickguard give the J-45 Burgundy a stand-out appearance, but the undeniable Gibson jumbo tone makes it a solid classic.
