The Gibson Acoustic J-35 acoustic-electric guitar's got history. First introduced in 1935, the J-35 was a smooth-playing, handmade instrument with huge, warm, sweet tone and a down-to-earth price tag. This impeccable re-creation of the classic sports an LR Baggs VTC pickup, so you can tap that gorgeous tone anytime, onstage or in the studio. With its solid spruce top and mahogany back and sides, this axe fits beautifully in dense mixes. It also sounds incredible on its own.

Round Shoulder style
Descending from Gibson's large HG Hawaiian guitar in 1929, and the original Jumbo, introduced in 1934, Round Shoulder Dreadnoughts are steeped in Gibson tradition and lauded for their pure, rich tones and impressive volume. With smooth lines and a curvaceous shape, Round Shoulder style guitars invite a close relationship with their respective guitarists. Their body shape makes these guitars easier to hold and more comfortable to wrap your arms around.
Mahogany bodied acoustics are where it's at for recording
When it comes to recording flat-picked acoustic guitars, professional recording engineers prefer instruments with a mahogany back and sides, rather than rosewood. If that surprises you, understand that it has to do with the preponderance of low end inherent in rosewood-bodied guitars (that must dealt with) versus the perfection with which a properly-recorded mahogany-bodied acoustic sits within a track. The Gibson Acoustic J-35 is a cannon: very loud but superbly balanced. It's a great choice for tracking in a thick mix, yet it sounds rich and full-bodied on its own. Just aim a small-diaphragm condenser mic at the 12th fret and you're good-to-go. Record the Baggs Element pickup output to another track and you've got beaucoup mix options.

The Gibson Acoustic J-35 comes with LR Baggs's popular VTC acoustic pickup system, a popular choice among AudioBuy.com.au Australia's acoustic guitarists. This system features a low-profile under-saddle transducer that's proven more stable and durable than many standard ribbon-type pickups. Its sleek and effective design removes unnecessary internal components to enhance the coupling between the pickup and the guitar and improve the sensitivity of the transducer for a robust, lively, and natural acoustic sound with excellent dynamics and delicate high end. Combined with an onboard preamplifier with an unobtrusive and removable volume control, mounted just inside the soundhole, the VTC gives your Gibson Acoustic J-35 the amplification you need, with zero compromises for tone or convenience.
