Product Description

This is a stunning acoustic guitar which sounds superb and is constructed entirely of solid woods, and dons iconic Gibson inspired appointments.

Epiphone, in partnership with the Gibson Custom Shop, is proud to introduce the Epiphone 1942 Banner J-45, an incredible recreation of the legendary original Workhorse model from 1942. This exceptional acoustic guitar has a thermally aged, solid red spruce top, solid mahogany back and sides, and a one-piece mahogany neck with a laurel fretboard, a V-shaped profile, and mother-of-pearl dot inlays.

The headstock features the world-famous Gibson open book profile and has the Inspired by Gibson Custom double diamond logo etched on the back and an Epiphone Inspired by Gibson banner on the front. It is stage and studio-ready with the built-in L.R. Baggs VTC preamp and under-saddle piezo pickup system and a hardshell case with the Inspired by Gibson Custom logo is also included.
