Jackson Danger: Gibson Vintage J-45 Guitar My Acoustic Guitar

Jackson Danger Presenting:  Gibson Vintage J-45…. Taaa Taaa!

Gibson began making acoustic guitars in 1934.  In 1942, Gibson introduced the J-45 guitar. It was part of the round-shoulder, dreadnought line.  It was a durable no-frills guitar and the manufacturer called it their “workhorse guitar.”   In 1942, the list price was $45.00…and was made during the war while others were discontinued.  The wood had a sunburst look, which hid small defects in the wood.  Wood was very hard to find during the war.  The Gibson J-45 became a huge success.

The J-45 Gibson Guitar is one of the most loved acoustic guitars in history and is still produced today.  Because of it’s distinguished rank, Gibson released the 1942 “J-45 Legend” in honor of its great legacy.

The J-45 is know for its warm deep sound and good projection.  It is also easy to play.

With that introduction, I would like to tell you about my Gibson Vintage J-45.
