Overview

The J-35 is handcrafted exclusively from solid tonewoods, Sitka spruce and mahogany. Featuring vintage 1930' advanced X- bracing pattern resulting in outstanding projection. The 2016 J-35 is the modern equivalent of that original round-shoulder flat-top with Gibson's historically celebrated, full-bodied acoustic tone.

Enhanced upgrades include L.R. Baggs VTC pickup for plug-and-play ease, and a finer grit sandpaper and polishing compounds have been used for the high gloss finish. This J-35 also has a premium setup utilizes state-of-the-art German-engineered Plek technology to create the finest playing surface possible. The J-35 is hand finished for the finest feel and playability, and its smoother hand rubbed and oiled fingerboard and bridges will help them last longer and maximizes the wood's natural vibrancy. Includes hardshell case.

    Comments about Gibson 2016 J-35 Slope Shoulder Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I needed to kill some time when I remembered that there was a Guitar Center near by. So I stopped in and took a look around their acoustic room. I wasn't in the market for a new guitar, as I had recently dropped four grand on a nice L-00, but once I picked up the J-35 and picked the first note, I knew it was going to come home with me. I almost passed it by, but I am so glad that I didn't! This guitar sounds fantastic! It is very balanced sounding, has a great low end, and actually sounds played in. This guitar is super versatile. I am mainly a finger picker, but it also sounds fantastic flat picked or strummed. It also records amazingly well. I have aquired a few nice guitars over the years and if I was forced to get rid of all of them except for one, there is very good chance that the J-35 would be sticking around. Although I personally prefer the sunburst of my J-45 to the natural top of the J-35, I much prefer the sound of the J-35. It just sounds warmer and more inviting. I really don't care for under saddle pickups, so pulled out the Baggs Element and installed a Baggs Lyric (on the back side of the bridge plate). While I was at it I also replaced the Tusq saddle and nut with ones that I made out of bone. This definately improved the sound of an already great sounding instrument. I also removed the pickguard (which looks to be a printed design) and replaced it with one fashioned out of celluloid. Now the guitar sounds, plays and looks fantastic. I am so glad that I needed to kill some time and walked into a Guitar Center that day!
