About This Gibson J45 Acoustic Guitar

1942 Banner J-45 Light Aged, Vintage Sunburst

The allure and legend of the Gibson J-45 lives on in the new Murphy Lab Custom Shop 1942 Banner J-45.

Inspired by the holy grail of vintage acoustic instruments, luthiers in Gibson Montana meticulously crafted a J-45 just like the most popular and celebrated version in structure and components.

The new Custom Shop 1942 Banner J-45 includes a Thermally Aged Adirondack red spruce top hand-sprayed with a historic-style burst, a hot hide glue top bracing for better tonal response, and a bone nut and saddle.

It features Light Aging by the skilled artisans of the Murphy Lab. The Murphy Lab Light Aged finish treatment, paired with lightly aged hardware, simulates decades of light play wear, giving it the unique character, vibe, and feel of an original example from the Gibson Golden Era.
