Gibson acoustic guitars have always been held in really high regard, with a back catalogue of iconic acoustic designs it is always really great when they take a classic design back to the drawing board.
The Gibson J-45 Avant Garde is one of Gibson Montana's latest modern classics. Handcrafted in the same facility as the legendary J-200's and its sister J-45's, the Avant Garde is a great edition to the Gibson roster.
With a solid Sitka Spruce top on top of a beautiful Walnut body, this guitar is stunningly resonant and has great natural sustain. Finished in a classic Gibson Walnut Burst, this reworking of a classic design is an easy player that is really articulate and responsive. An Advance Response neck boasts a Richlite fingerboard, it's great for delicate finger style and string bending is effortless. With mother of pearl dot inlays it retains a classic vibe and offers a touch of vintage Gibson appeal.
With an LR Baggs Element pickup system as standard you can plug in and play anywhere. With great clarity and note definition the Element is one of the best acoustic preamp systems around, a perfect match for the J-45 Avant Garde.
