This all new instrument features a Spruce top that is matched with Walnut back and sides. Walnut imparts a tone that many players describe as a blend of rosewood's clarity and mahogany's 'woodiness'.

zZounds Expert Review
Fresh out of Bozeman, Montana, Gibson's J-15 acoustic is the real deal, with all of the hand-craftsmanship and detailing of an amazing USA-made Gibson acoustic. This model makes it easier than ever to get a heirloom-quality Gibson acoustic that you'll be proud to play and show off for years.

Nitrocellulose lacquer, dovetail neck joint, premium woods and impeccable finish work all combine in a historic J Series acoustic shape -- at an unheard-of price for a guitar of this caliber. The solid spruce top and super-thin walnut back and sides deliver a gorgeous warm tone with a truly great punch that you have to feel.
Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (3 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "Gibson J-15: The Search Is Over!"
Sound: I agree with others who have commented that the J-15 tone fits in between mahogany's brightness and rosewood's darkness. There is a richness in the tone that I can't get enough of. I've tried a few different string choices, and I most enjoy the Pearse PB lights on this guitar. Feature: The maple neck is a bit unusual, but I was confident I would like it because Seagulls also use maple. The feel is smooth, and the notes vibrate all the way up the neck! I appreciate the simplicity of the design and find it elegant, rather than plain. The walnut on my guitar is just gorgeous, and I appreciate the quality nitro finish. Ease of Use: More so than other guitars I tried, the J-15 has quite a tonal range depending on where it's strummed. Mute it and strum near the bridge, and there's a bluesy thump. Strum it over the soundhole, and you've got volume with a bit of growl. Fingerpick it near the end of the fretboard, and the notes are sweet and complex. Quality: It's built to last and guaranteed by Gibson. I hope to list it in my will! Value: If "you get what you pay for" then this instrument hits the perfect balance. The quality is excellent, yet the cost is very affordable for a member of the Gibson family. Let me repeat, I tried a J-35 and prefer this model, which is less expensive. Manufacturer Support: I have not had to contact Gibson. The Wow Factor: I had been obsessively scouring the market for a slope shoulder dreadnought in all solid woods with a 24.75" scale. The top Asian builder charges nearly this much, but I went with Gibson because it's got history, attitude, and I just love that my guitar came from Montana! Overall: Over the past 3 years I've been performing in a small worship music group, and I've been searching for just the right combination of tone, volume, ergonomics, build quality, playing comfort, and value. (Who isn't?) The Gibson J-15 hits that overall "sweet spot" for me in all of these areas. I need a full-size rhythm acoustic that is a "player." I feel compelled to pick up this guitar and play it every time I am in the room with it, which is several times a day. I've only had it a month, but the tone keeps growing sweeter to my senses.
