The J-15 provides a familiar look and feel with a nice variation on tone woods. The walnut back and sides are quite striking in their grain and produce a warm low end response. The neck is maple with a stunning walnut center stripe. The fretboard and bridge are also a nicely grained walnut. This has some typical light signs of use, but overall is a very clean instrument. It comes equipped with an L.R. Baggs Element pickup and includes its original Gibson branded hard shell case.
