The Masterbilt J-45 from Epiphone recreates the famed 1942 Gibson workhorse for the modern era - and with affordability in mind. Part of their Inspired by Gibson™ Collection, Epiphone's Masterbilt J-45 preserves all of the features that made the original J-45s so incredible, while keeping it a wholly accessible instrument - utilizing an all solid wood construction, a '60s style Kalamazoo headstock, an unbelievable Aged gloss finish, and Mother of Pearl dot inlays. Plus, it comes equipped with a Fishman® Sonicore under-saddle pickup so that you can plug it in and play!
The classic J-45 has been the choice of legendary musicians ever since it was first introduced in 1942. Known as The Workhorse, it is Gibson's most famous and most popular acoustic guitar model. Now Epiphone has released a new Inspired by Gibson™ J-45™ with all of the features players want, including all solid wood construction, a comfortable rounded C neck profile, 20 medium jumbo frets, the 60s style Kalamazoo headstock shape and a gorgeous Aged Vintage Sunburst finish. The Fishman® Sonicore under-saddle pickup and Sonitone preamp make this Workhorse stage-ready too.
