Gibson Montana 1960s J-45 Wine Red Sitka/Mahogany (Limited Edition of 75)

The J-45 is one of Gibson’s best-selling acoustics of all time. Nicknamed “The Workhorse” and first introduced in 1942, this popular acoustic is now the icon of its round-shoulder, dreadnought line. The 1960’s J-45 Wine Red features Gibson’s famous finish. Vintage touches include bone nut and saddle, Grover strap cream button tuners, 60’s style handmade white pickguard, and finished with a Gibson gold decal on the peghead. Upgraded with an LR BaggsTM VTC pickup and finished with an extraordinary Wine Red color that is sure to stand out!
