Designed to be a paired-down version of the Jumbo, the Gibson J-35 is favored by musicians for its comfort, exceptional playability, and warm, balanced sound. This 1936 J-35 takes inspiration from those first-year models, and it's an excellent choice for musicians seeking a premium acoustic guitar that's been vintage spec'd from top to bottom.
The 1936 J-35 features a mahogany body capped with a thermally aged red spruce top. This gorgeous tonewood pairing gives it a full-bodied sound with deep lows, punchy mids, and clear, articulate highs. Guitarists will also love its advanced jumbo body that sings out with plenty of volume, making it perfect for players who love to dig in with a pick.
This guitar doesn't just sound great, though - its historic neck profile offers a comfortable, period-correct feel, while its rosewood fingerboard plays with a velvety smooth response. Plus, its Vintage Sunburst finish, mother-of-pearl inlays, multi-ply binding, and cream strap buttons provide a stunning old-school aesthetic that can only be described as remarkable.
Shipped with a historically accurate hardshell case and an accessory kit, the Gibson J-35 Jumbo is great for musicians seeking a masterfully built acoustic guitar with a sleek vintage aesthetic and a powerful, resonant voice.
