The Gibson Acoustic 2018 J-15 Electro Acoustic Guitar in Walnut Burst is a hand-built work of art straight out of Gibson's Bozeman factory. Built to the same time-tested techniques by skilled luthiers with a love for their craft, the J-15 is beautiful model that is perfect for any occasion. Whether you're simply chilling out and jamming at home, laying down tracks in the studio, or hitting the stage night after night, the J-15 is the ideal performance partner.
Round shoulder design
The J-15 is built to the instantly recognisable round-shoulder dreadnought body shape, which combines comfortability and power to perfection. The back and sides are constructed using walnut, a hard tonewood that establishes a generous mid to low-end tonal foundation. Paired with this is a solid Sitka spruce top, which makes an excellent soundboard due to its impressive ability to project tones with the utmost clarity. The top is reinforced using traditional hand-scalloped bracing, which prevents unwanted buckling or warping of the soundboard over time.
Treated to a walnut burst finish, the body of the J-15 has been protected by a slender yet resilient layer of hand-sprayed nitrocellulose. You can rest assured that the understated finish of the guitar will remain in pristine condition for years to come. The soundhole is adorned with a decorative rosette, whilst multi-ply binding encircles the top with single-ply binding around the bottom. The underside of the soundhole is protected by an understated tear drop pickguard.
Two-piece maple neck
Joined to the body via a compound dovetail neck-to-body joint is a supple yet supportive two-piece maple neck. The neck has been shaped to the slimtaper profile for comfort, whilst the finish allows the hand to glide along with ease. Married to the neck is a luxurious walnut fingerboard, which is home to 20 frets that are decorated with mother-of-pearl dot inlays. The short-scale length emphasis thick, warm note definition, whilst the 12-inch radius makes it a joy to execute smooth technique on.
L.R. Baggs Element pickup system
The Gibson 2018 J-15 is equipped with the L.R. Baggs Element pickup system, which is designed to translate the lush acoustic timbre of the guitar with the utmost fidelity. Mirroring the soundboard's movement during performances, the responsive electronics system enables the output level of the guitar to be attenuation without adding colouration to the signal, preventing unwanted noise, feedback, compression or phasing.
The headstock of the J-15 is home to Mini Grover tuning machines, which uphold tuning integrity with dutiful precision. The body is equipped with a rectangle, closed slot walnut bridge, which anchors each string securely to optimise intonation and sustain. You can rest assured that throughout the most enthusiastic of performances, the J-15 plays consistently every time. Each Gibson Acoustic 2018 J-15 Electro Acoustic in Walnut Burst is supplied with a hardshell case, and accessory kit to keep your new pride and joy in pristine condition.
