Freshly set up in-house by our esteemed Guitar Tech, this vintage-styled J-45 is dialed in and ready to go.  This guitar is from Gibson's Custom Shop Historic Series and it really looks the part--like you stepped back into 1942 and bought a brand new Banner J-45.  Comes with deluxe hard shell case.  See below for more details and specifications.


The allure and legend of the Gibson J-45 lives on in the new Custom Historic 1942 Banner J-45. Inspired by the holy grail of vintage acoustic instruments, luthiers in Montana meticulously crafted a J-45 just like the most popular and celebrated version in structure and components. The new 1942 Banner J-45 includes a Thermally Aged Adirondack red spruce top hand-sprayed with a historic-style burst, hot hide glue top bracing for better tonal response, and a bone nut and saddle.
