2014 Gibson J-15
Modern take on the classic Gibson slope shoulder Dreadnought that they became so well known for with an all American Woods Twist.
The Sitka spruce top is traditionally X-braced, with the back and sides being Walnut instead of the usual J-45 Mahogany. The 3 piece Maple and Walnut neck is a bit of a departure from the traditional Mahogany formula but it was good enough for pre-war L5’s and Super 400’s, the fingerboard is walnut as well instead of the expected Indian Rosewood.
The J-15 has a bright, lively tone acoustically and is fitted with an LR Baggs Element pickup that has a single volume control concealed just inside the soundhole’s upper edge.
The guitar comes with the original Gibson hard case.
