1939 Gibson J-35 SOLD

The Gibson J-35 featured a spruce top with mahogany for the back, sides and neck, and rosewood for the fingerboard and bridge. Originally, the available finish was sunburst, as this hides many visual flaws in otherwise good-sounding and usable wood, which in turn lowers costs and price.

The Gibson J-35 is back, and what an entrance!

Originally produced in 1936, the J-35 was displaced by the classic (and slightly more expensive) J-45, and went out of production in 1942. About 3000 were originally made.

The headstock has the vintage Gibson script logo and the “Only A Gibson Is Good Enough” banner.

Guitars are wonderful as works of art, but equally fascinating is the story of their use. This 1937 Gibson J-35 is an authentic piece of Canadian musical history. It worked at a lot of shows and dances during the late 1930’s and 1940’s in New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island, and built a lot of character during that time.
