Gibson Custom Shop 1936 J-35 Acoustic - Vintage Sunburst 21054043

Historically celebrated Gibson Round Shoulder

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 but still offer musicians a warm and balanced instrument. This Custom Historic 1936 J-35 delivers the look, feel and sound of our iconic J-35 as a seasoned vintage instrument. The Master Luthiers in Bozeman, Montana, have created a beautiful vintage-inspired instrument sure to be coveted by the most discerning of flat-top players. The 1936 J-35 features a Thermally Aged Adirondack red spruce top held by hot hide glue construction, a wide 1.77’’ nut width, open-slot bridge, bone saddle, and strap cream button tuners.
