What Haworth Guitars say:
The Gibson J-35 Acoustic Guitar in Antique Natural Finish is an amazing all-solid, American-made, full-bodied acoustic guitar by Gibson.
At Haworth Guitars, we believe that the Gibson J-35 Acoustic Guitar provides incredible value for the player with its solid Sitka spruce top and solid mahogany back and sides as well as it's inbuilt LR Baggs Element Pickup System. The Gibson J35 sounds big and bright and the mahogany neck feels comfortable and easy to play.
The Antique Natural Nitrocellulose Finish on this Gibson J35 Acoustic Guitar not only looks amazing but also feels great and allows the timber to breathe.
What Gibson has to say:
Introduced in 1936, the J-35 was Gibson's answer to a call for a quality, handcrafted guitar with unrivalled 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 a Baggs Element pickup, the J-35 is a go-to favourite for vocal accompaniment on stage or in the studio.
