J-45 started out in 1942, as a part of Gibson`s J series, which was supposed to compete with Martin`s D series. J models, as opposed to the classic dreadnought of Martin models, featured slope-shoulder contour. J-45 became an instant classic and has remained in production to this day. J-45 Cutaway is the latest development in J-45 family, being the series` first ever cutaway model. It is based on the J-45 Standard and costs some $150 more ($2,549, to be precise). Single-cut mahogany (back & sides) and spruce (top) body, one-piece mahogany neck and one-piece rosewood fingerboard make up the chassis of "The Workhorse". Main hardware and electronics features include L.R. Baggs VTC pickup system, nickel-plated Grover tuners and rosewood bridge.
