1999 Gibson J-45 Rosewood Acoustic Guitar Demo - Doug Munro for Guitar Hangar

Doug Munro is back at the Hangar with his demo of this gorgeous 1999 Gibson J-45 Rosewood. 1999 was the first year Gibson made a Rosewood model J-45, so this guitar has some collectible value. 

From our website: 
The J-45 is Gibson's best-selling acoustic of all time. Nicknamed "The Workhorse" and first introduced in 1942, this iconic acoustic has become the cornerstone of its round-shoulder, dreadnought line. World renowned for its full, balanced expression, warm bass and excellent projection. This 1999 J-45 is the first year Gibson produced the Rosewood model. With added dynamic range, this version of the famous J-45 is not only great for strumming in the rhythm section, but excels for fingerstylists and lead acoustic players. Added features like the piezo transducer bridge pickup and decorative fret markers make this an heirloom-quality guitar you'll want to pass down to the next generation. 

Why Rosewood?
Rosewood is much stronger and more dense than mahogany. Tonally, Rosewood has pronounced mids like Mahogany, but with expanded tonal range in both directions – it produces deeper lows and crisper highs, so it’s not mid-dominant like a guitar with Mahogany back and sides. It has a very full, resonant sound with rich over- and under-tones. Rosewood is great for strumming, but also sounds great for fingerstylists and solos. 

Features Include:

  • Indian Rosewood back and sides
  • Spruce top
  • Binding: 2-stripe body-binding
  • Finish colors: natural finish
  • Abalone Small Diamond fretboard inlay
  • Abalone rosette
  • Piezo Transducer pickup 
  • Slim taper neck
  • Dovetail joint
  • Made in the USA
  • Hardshell Case included
