Body Tonewoods

The Gibson 2016 J-15 Standard Electro Acoustic Guitar has been carefully crafted with an AA-grade Sitka Spruce top and Walnut back and sides. These high-quality tonewoods give the J-15 ample velocity and sustainable warmth, whilst remaining lightweight and easy to play. The hand-sprayed nitrocellulose lacquer finish not only lets the tone of the J-15 to mature with age, but also allows the unique character and beauty of the guitar's woods to shine through.

L.R. Baggs Element Active Acoustic Pickup System

Gibson Acoustic's J-15 comes equipped with the popular Element Active Acoustic Pickup System from L.R. Baggs, which features a low-profile undersaddle element-or transducer-that's proven more stable and durable than many standard ribbon-type pickups. Combined with an onboard preamp with an unobtrusive and removable volume control mounted just inside the Soundhole, the Element delivers performance not previously attainable from an undersaddle pickup. 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. The Element works with a standard 9V battery, which is housed inside the guitar in L.R. Bagg's new "Battery Bagg."
