Introduced in 1936, the J-35 was Gibson’s answer to a call for a quality, handcrafted dreadnought guitar with unrivaled tone and an incredible price. The new J-35 is the modern equivalent of that original round-shoulder flat-top with Gibson’s celebrated, full-bodied acoustic tone. Reborn for the same reasons that brought the original to the market, the J-35 is handcrafted with solid tone woods and all the acclaimed skill of Gibson Acoustic’s luthiers in Bozeman, Montana. The spruce top and mahogany back and sides produce the warm, expressive tone sought after by renowned artists, acoustic connoisseurs, record producers and sound engineers. The short-scale neck with dovetail neck-to-body joint, attached with traditional hot hide glue, provides for exceptionally smooth tonal response and easy playing. An Antique Natural finish hand-sprayed with Gibson’s signature nitrocellulose lacquer preserves the natural grain and lends a clean, modern look, while allowing the wood and tone to mature with age. Equipped with a Baggs Element pickup.
