The ST40 CW GT Presys is an excellent choice for the professional performing musician. From stage to studio, this guitar delivers the same warm tone as the ST40, with the added feature of a cutaway for easy access to the upper frets, Fishman Presys electronics and the protection and the aesthetic beauty of a Gloss top.
The warm and smooth tone of the Studio series ST40 comes from the combination of its mahogany back & sides and solid cedar top. The semi-gloss Custom Polished finish allows the wood to breathe and vibrate freely which promotes a higher level of acoustic tone, the more the guitar is played overtime.
Handcrafted exclusively at Gibson's Bozeman, Montana facility, the J-15 is all about North American solid tonewoods, with a Sitka spruce top which provides you with ample velocity, and sustainable American walnut back and sides which possesses some of the warmth of rosewood while adding a dash of mahogany's presence, all without the extra weight.
