Crafted by Hand
Because of its larger body size as a jumbo style guitar, the Gibson J-15 electro-acoustic produces deep and powerful low-end tone with a lot of volume.
For the resonating top of the J-15, Gibson have opted for probably the most popular tonewood used in acoustic guitar building; Sitka Spruce.
Renowned for its broad tonal range and versatility, Sitka Spruce is ideal for almost any genre you can throw at it.
Furthermore, as it is a solid top, you get rich, resonant performance that will only improve with age.
Walnut has been used for the back and sides of the Gibson J15, imbuing the tone with its own rich and balanced sonic characteristics.
Traditional hand-scalloped X-bracing can be found within the Gibson J-15 enhancing the guitar's sustain, resonance and projection.
Slim Taper Maple Neck
Fitted by hand to the Gibson J15's body with a sturdy dovetail joint and traditional hide glue is a 2-piece Maple neck.
The neck's Slim Taper profile ensures a comfortable and easy playing experience.
A Slim Taper provides you with a comfortable and fast playing experience for the entire length of the neck.
The Walnut fretboard holds 20 frets and has a 12" radius allowing for intricate and articulate performance.
High Quality Hardware
The fantastic performance and premium materials certainly doesn't end with the wood, with Gibson equipping the J-15 with fantastic, high quality hardware.
TUSQ has been used for the nut, saddle and bridge pins. This material has been precision engineered under high head and pressure for excellent performance.
As a result, the saddle and bridge pins provide excellent transfer of energy from the strings to the Sitka Spruce top.
Similarly, the TUSQ nut ensures consistent, enhanced sustain and clean, bright tone while eliminating string binding.
Up on the headstock, there are six Mini Grover Rotomatic tuners providing incredibly precise and secure tuning while adding to the great, vintage-inspired look of the Gibson J-15.
LR Baggs Electronics
Allowing you (and your audience) to enjoy fantastic tone when you play live and loud, the Gibson J-15 has been fitted with an LR Baggs Element pickup system.
While most undersaddle acoustic guitar pickups just produce a signal from the string vibrations, the LR Baggs system does things a little differently.
In contrast to standard acoustic pickups can leave your tone sounding brittle and lifeless, the LR Baggs system is able to capture the true voice of your guitar.
It does this by also tracking the movement of your guitar's soundboard therefore reproducing the characteristic's of the wood along with the guitar's size and shape.
Furthermore, the volume control can be found within the J-15's soundhole. This was done to avoid drilling more holes into the guitar, therefore retaining the beautifully deep and rich resonance of the instrument.
All-Around Excellent Performance
With its combination of traditional handcrafting, top quality wood choices, high quality hardware and LR Baggs electronics, the Gibson J-15 gives you incredible performance all-around.
Furthermore, you get everything you need to look after your new Gibson J-15 with it including a Gibson accessory kit and coming to you in a hardshell case.
