The secret to the tone of sloped-shoulder dreadnoughts! Made of quartersawn Stika spruce, these pre-shaped braces are period-correct and provide the perfect start to your next sloped-shoulder style build.

A timeless heritage, an unmistakable sound
Originally introduced in 1942, Gibson’s® J-45® quickly made a name for itself as a dependable workhorse with a sweet, mellow, balanced sound. Known as a “sloped-shoulder” dreadnought on account of its rounded, sloping upper bought, this style of dreadnought has been played by some of the biggest names in music. James Taylor, Elvis Presley, and Bruce Springsteen and countless other have relied on this acoustic guitar shape to craft their sound.
