Epiphone is proud to introduce the Ltd. Ed. 1963 J-45 acoustic guitar, the return of one of Epiphone's most acclaimed reissue models based on the legendary J-45 round shoulder dreadnought, the driving power behind classics in rock, pop, and country for over 60 years from Hank Williams to The Beatles.
Epiphone's first Ltd. Ed. reissue of the J-45 earned it a Mark of Excellence Award from Guitar One magazine and the new Epiphone Ltd. Ed. 1963 J-45 once again makes a vintage legend affordable to everybody.
The original J-45 was first introduced at Gibson's Kalamazoo factory in the early 30s as a no frills, high quality acoustic guitar, one of the first of its kind. As musical styles changed from jazz to R&B and honky tonk to rock and roll, the J-45 never went out of style.
With fans as wide ranging as John Lennon and George Harrison, Lightnin' Hopkins, Buddy Holly, Skip James, Keith Richards, and Noel Gallagher of Oasis, the J-45 is a must have for the serious acoustic guitar player.
The Ltd. Ed. 1963 J-45 has a vintage styled Rosewood reverse belly bridge and a compensated artificial bone saddle. And of course, the Ltd. Ed. 1963 J-45 is strung with medium Epiphone acoustic guitar strings.
