Introduced in 2014, the J-15 acoustic-electric guitar represents a new direction for Gibson Acoustic's round-shoulder dreadnought body style. This inaugural J-15 acoustic-electric model features a unique combination of North American tonewoods including walnut back and sides topped by Sitka spruce. The rich and full-bodied tone this produces is the basis for acoustic guitar tone in general. But that's just the beginning. Paired with Gibson's scalloped bracing and short-scale neck, the J-15 rewards you with easy playing feel and a phenomenal amount of natural acoustic projection.Get amazing sound onstage courtesy of LR Baggs Element electronics
The Gibson Acoustic J-15 comes with LR Baggs's popular Element Active Acoustic Pickup System, a popular choice among Sweetwater's acoustic guitarists. This system features a low-profile undersaddle 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 Element gives your J-15 the amplification you need, with zero compromises for tone or convenience. Sweetwater knows that a flexible acoustic-electric guitar is important to you, and we're confident that the Gibson J-15 can do the job.Round-shoulder style
Descending from Gibson's J-45 acoustic guitar, round-shoulder dreadnoughts are steeped in Gibson tradition and lauded for their pure, rich tones and impressive volume.
