We now have fallen in love with this gorgeous new Gibson acoustic, it represents amazing value for money, making an allowance for where it’s built and the amazing specs it has. it sounds fab plugged in as well, partly because of the LR Baggs element pickup. "J-35 Introduced in 1936, the J-35 was once Gibson’s answer to a call for a quality, handcrafted guitar with unrivaled tone and an out of this world price. The 2013 J-35 is the up to date equivalent of that original round-shoulder flat-top with Gibson’s historically celebrated, full-bodied acoustic tone. Reborn for a similar reasons that brought the original to the market, the J-35 is handcrafted with solid tone woods and all of 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, up to date look, even as enhancing the guitar’s resonance. A unique fire stripe pick guard, multi-ply top binding and soundhole rosette, and a Gibson script and banner logo make it easy to distinguish the J-35 in the circle of relatives of round-shoulder dreadnoughts. Equipped with a Baggs Element pickup, the J-35 is a go-to favorite for vocal accompaniment on stage or in the studio."
