Product ExperienceI own it
Closest StoreKanata, Ontario
Picked this one up in June on sale. Played just about every Gibson in the store at the time and chose the J29 over the J35, J15 and an Advanced Jumbo because I liked the way it played and sounded better. This guitars shorter scale length makes it a real pleasure to play; sound wise it projects really well with a very dynamic mid range; I find it livelier than a Martin D28. Build quality and craftsmanship on this guitar are in my opinion superb.
