Behind Guitar Of The Day: Friday May 3: Gibson J35
Behind Guitar Of The Day: Friday May 3: 1930's Gibson J35. Martin called them Dreadnaughts, Gibson called them Jumbos, and back in the 1930's Gibson's J35 got it's name because it was a 'Jumbo' and retailed for $35. The J35 shaped the future of big-bodied acoustic guitars and defined the sound of American folk, country and acoustic Blues music for decades to come. It's Flat Top Friday and Michael Lemmo has a beautiful 1930's Gibson J35 to show us.
