NGD - My first Gibson!

Recommended Posts

On Sunday I went into the local GC to buy a Yamaha LS16. I had played them, done research, and basically knew this was the exact guitar that I wanted! You might be asking why Guitar Center, well it is the only place close by that has the Yamahas in stock. Long story short, they had a setup at the front of the store with numerous acoustics including a J-15. The walnut back and sides were so beautiful that it immediately caught my eye and I knew that I had to see how it sounded. WOW! Such great midrange that sounded good strummed or played fingerstyle. Luckily the wife was already with me and gave me the approval since they had it marked down $250 from the normal street price. Absolutely love this guitar!

I've played about four of five of this model and they were all very well built great sounding guitars but I think yours is better looking than the ones I've played. Congratulations and enjoy it!

HNGD! Very nice buy!

 

Congratulations! I played one of these walnut J-15's just yesterday at my local GC where they were on sale. The walnut is beautiful, it sounded great, and the price is right! Enjoy the honeymoon!

Very nicely done!

 

Beautiful guitar and a nice abalone rosette.

 

I'd say "Welcome to the Forum!" except you posted pictures so it leads me to believe you've probably been lurking around here for a while and knew what we liked.

 

Welcome to the Forum anyway! Enjoy your Gibby.

Congratulations on the J-15. I've had one for over a year now. I love it! Very comfortable to play and sounds great.

Congrats on your new guitar! She is a beauty! I have been a proud owner of a J-15 for over a year now and play her everyday. I can't wait till July when I get to take her to the Rocky Mountains with me way up in northwest Monatana.

Congrats to the "My 1st Gibson" owners!!! There's nothing quite like the first one. It tells yourself & everyone around you that HEY - I'm serious about my playing. I've invested a lot of money here and I mean business! Enjoy!!!! [thumbup]

 

P.S. This may be your 1st - but it won't be your last Gibson. Trust me [smile]

The back of your Gibson J-15 Walnut looks like mine beautiful

 

I played a bunch of Martins D-18 HD-28v and the Gibson J-15 won sound looks and playability

 

plus the Walnut is just stunning
