Gibson are proud to reintroduce the J-35 originally designed in 1936 to offer players a high quality outstanding guitar with a modest price tag. Today these principles remain with players enjoying a quality Gibson acoustic made with solid woods at the lowest price point in Gibsons Montana acoustic line up. Additional features of the J35 include an LR Baggs Element pickup and an official Gibson hard case.
Solid Tonewoods The top of the J-35 is made from solid Sitka spruce while the back and sides are constructed from solid mahogany giving the J-35 a full and balanced expression warm bass and excellent projection. Selecting the right wood and the formula to dry it out are two of the most central procedures to Gibsons guitar-building process. Beginning with its first catalog in 1903 Gibson has assured its customers that every guitar would be built using woods with “the most durable elastic and sonorous qualities” and todays guitars from Gibson Acoustic are no different. Rosewood Fingerboard with Dot Inlays The fingerboard of Gibsons J-35 is constructed from the highest grade rosewood on earth which is personally inspected and qualified by Gibsons team of skilled experts before it enters the Gibson factories. The resilience of this durable wood makes the fingerboard extremely balanced and stable and gives each chord and note unparalleled clarity and bite. The J-35s dot inlays are made of genuine mother of pearl and are inserted into the fingerboard using a process that eliminates gaps. Bracing Every acoustic guitar made by Gibson features hand-scalloped radiused top bracing inside the body a feature normally found only in limited run hand-made guitars. By scalloping each brace by hand the natural sound of the acoustic is focused more toward the center of the body enhancing the instruments sound projection. L.R. Baggs Element Active Acoustic Pickup System Gibson Acoustics J-35 comes equipped with the popular Element Active Acoustic Pickup System from L.R. Baggs which features a low-profile undersaddle element – or transducer – thats proven more stable and durable than many standard ribbon-type pickups. Combined with an onboard preamp with an unobtrusive volume control mounted just inside the soundhole the Element delivers performance not previously attainable from an undersaddle pickup. Its sleek and effective design removes unnecessary internal components to enhance the coupling between the pickup and the guitar and improve the sensitivity of the transducer for a robust lively and natural acoustic sound with excellent dynamics and delicate high end. The Element works with a standard 9V battery which is housed inside the guitar in L.R.
