Gibson have announced the launch of the their G-45 Series Collection, as a “new generation of Gibson Acoustic Guitars and a new entry point for a Gibson acoustic”.
The new G-45 Series Collection is available in North America and China. “The same skilled artisans who build our most cherished and iconic acoustic models have put their heart and soul into this new collection of hand-crafted G-Series acoustics,” states Gibson.
Created in their acoustic facility in Bozeman, Montana, the new G-45 series “offers a superior sounding acoustic guitar at a compelling price”, designed and crafted in the U.S.A. says Gibson.
The G-Series is said to offer players of all levels, the perfect mix of tone, performance, traditional Gibson style and value. The G-Series acoustic integrates traditional build techniques that continue to separate Gibson from other major guitar makers, like a hot hide glue dovetail neck-joint, domed top bracing, blended with modern features, such as a slimmer body depth, and modern neck profile. The solid walnut back and sides are married to a solid Sitka spruce top, delivering a crisp sound with plenty of wonderful overtones and Gibson’s definitive mid-range, the G-45 Series is outfitted with a Fishman Sonitone pickup for easy plug and play at home, in-the-studio or on stage.
The new Gibson G-45 Series Collection has been hand-crafted by the same team that create their iconic J-200 and J-45’s. Priced at $999 and $1299 respectively, the new G-45 Series Collection’s first offerings, the G-45 Studio and G-45 Standard.
