Gibson Acoustic released information about the upcoming and very limited edition J-45 for guitarist-singer-songwriter John Hiatt.  We like the 1930s Advanced Jumbo style top bracing, and that beautiful custom triburst finish.  Only 100 will be produced.  More information from Gibson:

As one of rock’s most gifted singer-songwriters of the last 40 years, John Hiatt has continually forged
new personal ground with the music that has made him worthy of eleven Grammy nominations, as well as
a variety of other awards and distinctions in the music industry.
Gibson is proud to release the John Hiatt Model, a J-45 handmade with John’s personal specifications
reflecting his love and respect for this legendary model that has been his performing and songwriting partner
for decades. The John Hiatt Model is a Limited Edition of 100 guitars.
