Epiphone Slash J-45 Acoustic Electric in November Burst
Slash J-45 Acoustic Guitar from Epiphone!
In conjunction with a true legend of rock 'n' roll, Epiphone brings you the Slash J-45 Acoustic Guitar. This workhorse, rounded-shoulder dreadnought has consistently been one of the best-selling, most beloved acoustics of the past eight decades. With the Slash J-45, Epiphone has touched up this iconic axe with appointments and subtle design elements that celebrate Slash and his unique style. The Slash J-45 features a solid Sitka spruce top with solid mahogany back and sides for a tone that is as full as it is complex — a punchy treble is supported by a robust midrange and a low end that run through the entire sonic presentation at just the right level. In short, the Slash J-45, like its namesake, is a true original that will have you strumming for hours, basking in its tone and mesmerized by its stage-ready design.
Sweet Slash-approved appointments
The rounded "C"-shape profile of the mahogany neck features a flatter 16-inch Indian laurel fingerboard radius — all design elements overseen by Slash himself. These subtle design features translate to an ultra-smooth feel and response that makes chording and lead playing a breeze. There are 20 medium-jumbo frets along the fingerboard that are easy on the fingers as well. The truss rod cover also features Slash's engraved signature and his famous "Skully" drawing is on the back of the headstock. Ivory bridge pins, a reverse belly Indian laurel bridge, and a Graph Tech TUSQ nut and saddle are added Slash-approved appointments that have a subtle but important effect on the overall resonance of the J-45. Strum a big, open first-position chord on this beauty and hear the results!
LR Baggs VTC electronics deliver!
The Slash J-45 comes with an LR Baggs VTC acoustic pickup system, a popular choice among acoustic guitarists. This system features a low-profile, under-saddle transducer that's proven to be more stable and durable than many standard ribbon-type pickups. Its sleek and effective design removes unnecessary internal components to enhance the coupling between the pickup and the guitar and improve the sensitivity of the transducer. The result is a robust, lively, and natural acoustic sound with excellent dynamics and a delicate high end. Combined with an onboard preamplifier with an unobtrusive and removable volume control mounted just inside the soundhole, the VTC gives the Slash J-45 a pure-sounding amplification presence.
