From Gibson, a super cool take on the historic 1930s J-35 model with vintage-style features wedded to a modern pickup/preamp system, namely, an L.R. Baggs VTC system with soundhole volume and tone controls.  Nitrocellulose lacquer satin finish, so this guitar will age naturally just like the vintage models.  Hand-carved scalloped bracing.  Sweet Fire Stripe pickguard. 

Freshly set up in-house by our skilled Guitar Tech, this J-35 is dialed in and ready to join you onstage tonight.  Comes with its original hard shell case.  


The J-35 evolved from the Jumbo in 1936, a time when the Great Depression was still wreaking havoc on Americans. Gibson developed the J-35 to be a pared-down model that still offered musicians a warm and balanced instrument. The J-35 30s Faded delivers every bit of the seasoned, vintage look, feel, and sound of our iconic J-35, with a satin nitrocellulose finish that only adds to its rich legacy and undeniable vintage vibe. Discerning flattop players will love the rich, full-bodied tone from this vintage-inspired, round-shoulder beauty, along with its superb playability and simple aesthetic charm. Includes a hardshell case.
