Drawing inspiration from the J-45 acoustic, the Gibson J-15 is an American-made dream that exemplifies the style and tonal excellence we've come to expect from the guitar making giant.

Body

The powerful dreadnought body is comprised of solid walnut on the back and sides, and a solid sitka spruce top. The walnut generates plenty of mid to low-end power, crucially giving the J-15 plenty of clout. The Gibson standard X-braced sitka spruce top, resonates wonderfully, which allows the sound to be projected loudly and clearly.

A thin but incredibly resilient coating of hand-sprayed nitrocellulose protects the body. This allows the tonewoods to remain in pristine condition for as long as possible, allowing you to appreciate that gorgeous natural finish for years to come.

Neck

A bright sounding maple neck carries the luxurious walnut fingerboard. The maple/walnut combination counters the deeply resonant body perfectly, by allowing the upper frequency ranges to ring out clearly and with excellent articulation. The neck is also finished with a thin layer of nitrocellulose, again to protect the wood from superficial playing wear and tear. It also has the excellent property of preventing the neck from becoming tacky, which means you can smoothly run your fretting hand up and down with the greatest of ease.

Electronics

The L.R. Baggs Element pickup system has been fitted to the J-15. Designed to mirror the soundboard's actual movement as you play, the incredibly responsive electronics system allows you to increase the level of the J-15 without colouring the signal with unwanted noise, compression or phasing.

Hardware

A teardrop tortoise pickguard protects the lower bout of the body top from unwanted pick scrapes and playing damage. A sumptuous multi-ply binding to the top ensures the edges are reinforced and also protected from superficial chips to the tonewoods.

Mini Grover tuning machines keep you strings locked in the tuning you desire throughout each and every performance, whilst the traditional rectangle-shaped walnut bridge reinforces the strings' connection to the body.

The power and tonal versatility of the Gibson J-15 electro acoustic - even before you plug in and amp it up - is simply breathtaking.
