In addition to Gibson’s recently unveiled Classics and Contemporary electric guitars, the company has introduced a new series of acoustics, dubbed the Generation line.
The new series is aimed at younger and entry-level players. The affordable line boasts high-quality, USA-made guitars “built by the same hands that make the J-200 and J-45’s,” according to Gibson.
The first guitars to be unveiled are the G-45 Studio and G-45 Standard, priced at $999 and $1,299 respectively. Both guitars feature solid Sitka spruce tops and walnut back and sides, in contrast to the mahogany back and sides of the regular J-45.
“We are very excited about the new Gibson Generation line offering the Gibson craftmanship at an accessible premium price point,” said Chief Merchant Officer Cesar Gueikian.
