This 2002 J-45 Rosewood is a beautiful and rare offering from the Gibson Custom Shop. Although the J-45 is traditionally built with mahogany back and sides, this one features Brazilian Rosewood back and sides and a stunning bear-claw Adirondack Spruce top. The result is a powerful, robust slope-shoulder-dreadnought sound with the subtle, sweet response of the shorter 24.9″ J-45 scale length. This J-45 Rosewood also has an ebony fingerboard and ebony bridge which allow for more clarity and focus. We love the careful script inlay on the peghead and the gold hardware; they help show this is a unique instrument that could only come from the Gibson Custom Shop in Bozeman, MT.
