Product# J11226

A limted edtion that's a favorite for vocal accompaniment onstage or in the studio.

The J-35 Collector' Edition is modeled after the original 1935 release of this classic with solid tonewoods and the tradition of excellence that makes these extraordinary guitars worth collecting. The solid Adirondack red spruce top and solid mahogany back and sides produce a remarkably warm, expressive tone. The short-scale neck with slightly wider nut width and advanced x-bracing provides for smooth tonal response, easy playing, enhanced baseand projection. The J-35 is a favorite for vocal accompaniment onstage or in the studio.

    Comments about Gibson Limited Edition Collector's J-35 Acoustic Guitar:

    Ordered this guitar, my first GIbson, just after Thanksgiving. Received it, it was beautiful. Smelled good too. Absolute tone cannon, just oozed Gibson chime with deep bass that resonated in your lap. Sustain for days. Alas, has a neck like a baseball bat. If that's your thing -- this is your guitar. I realized it wasn't going to be something I would enjoy playing long-term, so sent it back. MF took it back, no questions asked. Top-shelf instrument sold by a top-shelf retailer.
