The modern equivalent of Gibson's historically celebrated original round-shoulder flat-top.
Introduced in 1936, the J-35 was Gibson's answer to a call for a quality, handcrafted guitar with unrivaled tone and an incredible price. The 2013 J-35 is the modern equivalent of that original round-shoulder flat-top with Gibson's historically celebrated, full-bodied acoustic tone.
Reborn for the same reasons that brought the original to the market, the J-35 is handcrafted with solid tonewoods and all the acclaimed skill of Gibson Acoustic’s luthiers of 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 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 enhancing the guitar’s resonance.
A unique fire stripe pickguard, multi-ply top binding and soundhole rosette, and a Gibson script and banner logo make it easy to distinguish the J-35 in the family of round-shoulder dreadnoughts. Equipped with an L.R. Baggs Element pickup, the J-35 is a go-to favorite for vocal accompaniment on stage or in the studio. Includes case.

Comments about Gibson J-35 Acoustic-Electric Guitar:
Have had my "Gibby" J-35 for several weeks and am truly amazed. The sound, looks, workmanship are truly oustanding. Based on the Gibson 1936 Flat-top, my friends think it is so "Retro". As for price, I thought I was reading a mis-print. I immediately ordered this guitar and is my first true Boseman Montana instrument. Having picked for 45 years and a ton of guitars later, I'm one happy customer. You have to try it to believe it. It sells itself. Just wait for a bit as its shakes out as for all new guitars the sound just keeps getting better. Also, Gison throws in a case!
