Comments about Gibson 2017 J-15 Slope Shoulder Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:
I love this guitar. I am a former taylor player. I never knew a guitar could have such great bass response while still remaining bright and clear. This guitar sounds wonderful unplugged and through a PA. My only gripe is that I had to buy a strap thing that compensated for no strap peg. Otherwise this guitar sounds as good as a 45 at a good price (for a Gibson ;) ) I thought the lack of eq control would be annoying BUT the L.R. Bagg on this thing is magnificent. The fretboard on the 2017 is far superior to the 2016. The 16 was sharp and painful while the 17 is smooth and comfortable. The neck feels like a slim tapered 60s Gibson neck. Gibson did a great job upgrading the qc of the 2017 j-15s.
