Product Description

Since its introduction in 1936, the Gibson J-35 acoustic guitar has been the go-to dreadnought guitar for singers and songwriters. Gibson's classic round-shoulder flat-top acoustic produces luscious full-bodied overtones, thanks to the combination of a spruce top with mahogany back and sides. Whether you're singing on stage or strumming around the campfire, the Gibson J-35 provides warm, acoustic tones no other instrument can conjure.

Short-scale Strummer

The Gibson J-35 features a short-scale 24 and 3/4" fingerboard with 20 frets. This compact design makes it easier to reach open chords with your left hand while strumming with your right. It also brings the frets slightly closer together so it's quicker to get from the 1st octave to the 2nd, making this classic dreadnought super-comfortable to play.

Full-bodied Sound

If you're in the market for a dreadnought, then you're looking for a loud instrument with rich, deep tonal character. The Gibson J-35 benefits from over a hundred years of guitar-crafting experience -- resulting in a charmingly organic instrument. Get your hands on a Gibson J-35 and hear for yourself: the combination of a spruce top with mahogany back and sides combined with a jumbo resonating chamber grant rich, natural tones you can only get from a dreadnought.

American Craftsmanship

Selective design and a keen attention to detail have made the J-35 desirable to guitarists for generations. This 100% American-made acoustic guitar continues the tradition of fine craftsmanship with solid tonewood construction. Throw in mother-of-pearl dot inlays and a rosewood bridge and fingerboard, and you've got a instrument that looks just as great as it sounds.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (10 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Absolute Cash Cow of an Acoustic Guitar"
Overall: I have owned and played a number of acoustic guitars from original Oregon Breedloves back in the 1990s to Guilds to Epiphones. I never bought a Gibson before though I have played too many to count. I did a lot of comparisons and research before I decided to buy this one. It literally came down to the J45 and the J35 at the end. Though I like the J45 and I prefer sunburst finished acoustics, the J35 won out. Its bracing and the little details affect the sound enough that to my ear, it just sounds better. It plays great and feels great. It is absolutely alive. Every note vibrates through the guitar from the endpin jack to the tuning machines. It resonates and the sound just booms forth out of it. I really believe that these are going to sell like crazy. In fact, this is the only guitar in its price category that I could see someone buying on an impulse buy because it is that good. Zzounds took great care of me on this purchase as well. I could not be happier. I wish I could afford to buy another one before Gibson lets this go out of production.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Worth Owning. A Gibson at an affordable price."
Overall: Wasn't really sure when I first got and played the guitar, it sounded good but a little thin, but after I changed the strings to Martin 80/20 bronze light gauge (12-54) it sounds great. A full and beautifully balanced tone. And it plays like a dream. Nearly perfect setup right out of the box. If you want a REAL Gibson but can't justify the J45 cost you will LOVE this guitar for a good deal less. It has the J45 tone (some say better with it's AJ bracing pattern) but you don't pay for some of the frills. The ONLY thing I wish had been offered is a vintage sunburst finish but for this price I can live without it!
Style of Music: Rock, county, and blues...and blends of all.
