Overview

Every inch a Gibson, the 2018 J-15 is handcrafted from solid North American tonewoods, pairing a Sitka spruce top with walnut back and sides, complemented by a maple neck.

The hand-sprayed nitrocellulose finish allows you to enjoy the unique character and grain of the Sitka spruce top.

Comments about Gibson 2018 J-15 Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I had a Taylor for about 10 years and it was a nice Guitar. I wanted to upgrade so I sold the Taylor and shopped for a new Guitar. I really love the J-45 but it was out of my price range. A friend of mine told me to find one of these and boy am I glad he did. It's a beautiful guitar it sounds amazing and the action is awesome. I can't speak to the element pick up cause I haven't had a chance to play it live and plugged in just yet but I will update this when I do. So far it's a great guitar for the money.

    Comments about Gibson 2018 J-15 Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I purchased this 2 years ago and love it. Stays in tune, sounds great. I bought the 17model that improved the feel of the neck. Electronics are really good never get feedback. The wood combination looks good, sounds good, plays like a dream. Took it to the Gibson service guy for set up (strings were high). I would get this again in a second. I play it 3-4 hours per week. Got it on sale at guitar center who beat everyone's price. Sales guy was knowledgeable and bent over backward for me. I can't say enough about the guitar and the service.

        Comments about Gibson 2018 J-15 Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        This guitar is unbelievable. I've never been been a fan of Gibson acoustics until now. I've had a Martin D-28 and Taylor 314ce for years...... I stopped by GC to window shop, picked this rig up off the wall and have simply not put it down since. The voice on the guitar is truly remarkable; the bottom end is simply booming, and the top end is bright and chiming. Take the best of what Taylor and Martin do, and it's wrapped up in this very special Gibson. I will never, ever, part company with this J-15.

          First off never owned nor played a Gibson was always a Martin guy. This guitar stood out in sound, feel , and playability. It's finished and built super well couldn't find a flaw anywhere and can see why Gibson is a known brand like Martin. This Gibson will be replacing my others as it dominates. I don't use the pickup so no helpful review there but I'm sure it's great.
