The new Gibson J-29 is a masterfully crafted instrument that utilises the guitar making giant's wealth of experience and rich heritage with excellent results.

Body

The heart of the J-29 lies within the tonally rich rosewood back and sides, matched perfectly with a sitka spruce top. Shaped to the body type of the incredibly popular Gibson J-45, this body produces tonnes of power that one might not expect from a dreadnought. The rosewood fills out the bottom end with ease, creating a triumphant mid to low end rumble. Not to be outdone, the sitka spruce top - reinforced by the Gibson 1930's Advanced X-bracing - is a highly resonant soundboard that fills out the higher tonal range.

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 supportive mahogany neck provides the perfect base for the luxurious rosewood fingerboard. There are 19 delightfully playable frets on offer across a generous 24 3/4" scale length. The trusty 12" radius ensures that string bends can be executed without unwanted fret buzz and note drop-off.

The neck also features a resilient nitrocellulose finish that allows a smooth playing feel. The neck is also appropriately protected from unwanted scratches and rubbing.

Electronics

The L.R. Baggs Element pickup system has been fitted to the J-29. 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-29 without colouring the signal with unwanted noise, compression or phasing.

Hardware

The AJ style 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.

Grover tuning machines keep your strings locked in the tuning you desire throughout each and every performance, whilst the traditional rectangle-shaped rosewood bridge reinforces the strings' connection to the body. You can rest assured that no matter how hard you rock this guitar - fingerstyle and flat picking players alike - the intonation, action and tuning integrity will remain consistent.

The power and tonal versatility of the Gibson J-29 electro acoustic - even before you plug in and amp it up - is simply amazing. Whether you're simply looking for an amazing guitar for home use, or an incredibly reliable workhorse for gigging, you can't go wrong with the Gibson J-29.
