Gibson Unveils Brad Paisley Signature Acoustic

In celebration of Brad Paisley’s picking prowess, Gibson Acoustic has introduced the Brad Paisley J-45 Model, a custom-appointed acoustic guitar from Gibson’s luthier’s shop in Bozeman, Montana. Constructed in the image of the J-45 “round-shouldered” dreadnought with Paisley’s own preferences for a solid Adirondack Red Spruce top, solid mahogany back and sides, and one-piece custom mahogany neck with “modified V” profile and 24 3/4”-scale rosewood fingerboard, it’s a sultry instrument on par with the best pre-War Gibson flat-tops, yet equipped as a top-flight performance machine for today’s professional.

Only 300 Brad Paisley Model guitars are being  produced by Gibson Acoustic, and each one comes with a formfitting hardshell case with plush blue lining, an owner’s manual, Gibson’s Gold Warranty, label personally signed by Paisley, and a Certificate of Authenticity.

Details such as original 1942-spec scalloped red spruce & hide glue X-bracing, a Fishman Ellipse Aura pickup and preamp system and a bone nut and saddle all work to ensure rich, resonant tones, either unplugged or fully amplified, while a hand-sprayed nitrocellulose a bright Cherry Sunburst finish, multi-ply top binding, double-ring rosette, tortoiseshell pickguard with paisley engraving, mother-of-pearl dot inlays with MoP paisleys at the 12th fret, and “Brad Paisley” signature engraved truss-rod cover all declare that this is a rare and exclusive instrument.
