The Gibson 2016 J-35 Electro Acoustic Guitar with Antique Natural finish is a truly beautiful model. Benefitting from the exquisite design and detail that has made it such a beloved model amongst guitarists for several decades, the 2016 boasts some deft appointments that makes it better than ever before.

Originally released by Gibson in 1936, the J-35 was released to meet demands from guitarists who wanted a high-quality, hand-crafted acoustic guitar that was comfortable to gig with, whilst still remaining affordable. The 2016 model has received a new engraved truss rod cover, upgraded electronics, enhanced feel and finish, a premium set-up to guarantee maximum comfort, and a smoother hand-rubbed and oiled fingerboard and bridge. Not only that but every model is supplied with a Gibson hardshell case and owner's manual.

Solid J-35 Build Quality

The J-35 is a sumptuous model, and Gibson go to great lengths to guarantee it is as solid as it is beautiful. Built to the round shoulder shape that we've all come to know and love, the body is crafted using mahogany for the back and sides, which works perfectly with the body shape to create energy with an abundant warmth. Paired with the mahogany is a flat top make using grade AA solid Sitka spruce, which acts as the perfect soundboard thanks to its impressive resonant properties. To improve projection and resonance, scalloped bracing supports the soundboard by allowing it to move efficiently whilst preventing buckling or warping over time.

The timbre generated by the body shape and tonewoods is projected with the utmost efficiency, giving the J-35 a vast dynamic range to play with. Creating a seamless connection between the top and sides is 4-ply binding, which complements the beautiful antique natural finish exquisitely. Offered protection to the finish is smooth hi-gloss 90 sheen lacquer, which is carefully formulated to prevent premature damage whilst allowing the wood to resonate freely.

Sturdy neck

A round-profile single-piece mahogany neck has been fitted to the body – via an exquisite dovetail joint at the 14th fret – to guarantee strength and stability during performances, as well as optimising resonance and sustain throughout the guitar. Married to the neck is a sublime 20-fret rosewood fingerboard, which is adorned with mother-of-pearl dot position inlays to guide your way in style.

L.R. Baggs Elements VTC Pickup System

The Gibson 2016 J-35 is equipped with the L.R. Baggs VTC pickup system, which includes a pre-attached Element pickup, and all-discrete endpin preamp. The system translates the acoustic majesty of the J-35 with the utmost transparency when you play plugged into an amplifier or P.A. system, giving you the freedom to take to the biggest of stages with total confidence.

The soundhole-mounted volume and tone controls allow you to control your output discreetly, whilst the built-in low frequency crossover prevents any unwanted low-end grunt from over-powering your signal, and allows the natural timbre of the J-35 to sing with the utmost clarity.

Select Hardware Appointments

Fitted to the headstock you'll find the nickel-plated white button tuning machines with 14:1 gear ratio, which uphold tuning integrity with absolute precision. The Tusq nut at the top of the neck works dutifully between the traditional rectangle rosewood bridge with Tusq saddle, and tuning machines to guarantee stable tuning, intonation, and to optimise sustain.

The body is fitted with a firestripe J-35 pickguard to protect from unwanted pickscrapes and nicks during performances, whilst complementing the finish beautifully. If you're looking for an affordable guitar that - should you take care of it - will be a faithful partner for life, then the Gibson 2016 J-35 Electro Acoustic Guitar in Antique Natural is the perfect choice.
