Crafted by Hand
As a jumbo electro-acoustic guitar, the Gibson J-15's body is at the larger end of acoustic guitar types.
Because of this bigger size and its distinctly curved shaping, the Gibson J-15 jumbo electric acoustic guitar is able to produce strong low-end with great volume.
Probably the most popular tonewood when it comes to acoustic guitar tops, solid Sitka Spruce has been used for the Gibson J-15.
Known for its broad tonal range and excellent versatility due to its strength and elasticity, Sitka Spruce provides an excellent sonic pallet to suit almost any genre.
For the back and sides, Gibson have used Walnut. In contrast to the lighter colouring of the Sitka Spruce top, Walnut boasts a beautifully dark hue along with its rich grain.
Furthermore, Walnut adds its own balanced and multi-faceted tonal characteristics to the Gibson J-15's sound.
Within the body of the Gibson J-15, you'll find traditional hand-scalloped X-bracing.
This bracing provides enhanced sustain and projection while improving the strength and flexibility of the solid Sitka Spruce top.
Slim Taper Maple Neck
Hand-fitted to the Gibson J-15's body with a sturdy dovetail neck-to-body joint and secured the traditional way with hide glue is a 2-piece Maple neck.
A Slim Taper provides you with a comfortable and fast playing experience for the entire length of the neck.
Atop the neck is a Walnut fretboard with a 12" radius allowing for easy bends and other exciting performance techniques.
High Quality Hardware
Ensuring every feature on the guitar delivers incredible performance, Gibson have used high quality hardware throughout.
The nut, saddle and bridge pins are all made from TUSQ. This great material is precision engineered under high pressure and heat.
As a result, you get optimum transfer from the string vibration to the resonating solid Sitka Spruce top while the nut ensures consistent, enhanced sustain and clean, bright tone.
Mini Grover Rotomatic tuning machines can be found on the Gibson J-15's head stock providing excellent tuning precision and stability along with sophisticated aesthetics.
LR Baggs Electronics
Wanting you to have the same fantastic performance when plugged in as you enjoy when playing acoustically, Gibson have fitted the J-15 with an LR Baggs Element pickup system.
Because most undersaddle acoustic guitar pickups just take the signal from the string vibrations consequently your tone will sound brittle and lacking life.
In contrast, the most noteworthy feature of the LR Baggs Element system is that it tracks the movement of the soundboard.
As a result, you get beautiful tone that's full of life and a true reflection of your guitar's voice, certainly making it welcome addition to the Gibson J-15.
Rather than drilling holes into the side of the Gibson J-15, a volume control is discreetly placed within the soundhole, maintaining the rich and deep resonance of this wonderful electro-acoustic guitar.
All-Around Excellent Performance
From its top quality woods and traditional handcrafting to its high-end hardware and premium electronics, the Gibson J-15 electro-acoustic guitar delivers all-around excellent performance.
Furthermore, it comes to you in a Gibson hardshell case and includes a Gibson accessory kit so you can take care of your new Gibson J-15 at home or on the road.
