Beautifully Crafted Body

The high performance 835 Supreme acoustic features a slim body design, with only 4” depth that provides extra comfort for the player without compromising the guitars tone and projection. The body is crafted with a traditional scalloped X bracing, a time tested design that enhances the guitars natural resonance and projection to deliver big sounds. The acoustic features a modern belly down bridge made from rosewood with a tusq saddle, providing incredible string stability and intonation to deliver an excellent playing experience.

Spruce Top, Rosewood Back and Sides

The acoustic has a top made from sitka spruce to deliver a richly mellow tone with a broad dynamic range that accommodates any playing style. The top provides crisp, immediate articulation with a fundamental tonality to give the guitars sound plenty of power that’s direct. The Back and sides are crafted from rosewood to give the guitar a strong, clear presence of tone for a sparkling, sizzling sound. The wood is known to provide a scooped midrange, allowing for strong, pronounced low overtones to be produced to create a dark and complex tone. The rosewood and spruce complement each other to allow the Gibson to retain its clarity, no matter how hard the strings ae hit and offer the classic acoustic sound.

Advance Response Neck

The HP 835 Supreme has an advance response mahogany neck that offers a comfortable play, whilst the silky smooth action compliments the neck to unleash the player’s full potential. The mahogany provides the guitar with warm, mellow characteristics to deliver complexity to the highs and thickness to the lows. The neck is coupled with a rosewood fingerboard that not only looks amazing, but helps enhance the natural brightness of the guitar. The fingerboard’s open pours help to absorb most of the overtones, favoring a natural, fundamental tone that’s both warm and soft. The rosewood and mahogany work together to give the guitar good presence in the lower mids while offering complex highs and thick, creamy lows.

LR Baggs Electronics

Gibson’s HP 835 Supreme features L.R. Bagg’s popular Element Active System which uses a low-profile undersaddle pickup connected to an onboard class A endpin preamp and a soundhole mounted control panel. The Element Session runs off a 9-volt battery that’s housed in L.R Bagg’s battery bag to keep it secure to prevent any tonal loss. Each component is securely hidden away and designed to ensure the guitar’s tone and projection remains pure. The Element electronics offer an incredible dynamic range that deliver a robust, lively, natural acoustic sound thanks to the sensitivity of the pickup.

Gold Grover Rotomatic Tuners

Grover's mini tuners are an engineering marvel, with an abundant style and performance that’s perfect for the 835 Supreme. With a gear ratio of 14:1, the tuners deliver precision tuning that will keep the guitar sounding perfect for an enhanced playing experience. Each tuner is enclosed in a durable housing that provides maximum protection for the gear and string post to keep you playing for as long as possible. Each moving part is cut for exact meshing to eliminate the possibility of slippage, while a countersunk tension screw lets players regulate the tuning tension to any degree. A special lubricant inside the gear box provides smooth and accurate tuning stability.
