Beautifully Crafted Body

The high performance 635 W 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 richlite with a tusq saddle, providing incredible string stability and intonation to deliver an excellent playing experience.

Spruce Top, Walnut 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 walnut to give the guitar extra warmth and brightness for complex tones that have plenty of depth. The walnut delivers a strong punch that allows the guitar to sparkle whilst keeping everything balanced. The walnut and spruce complement each other to allow the Gibson to retain its clarity, no matter how hard the strings ae hit.

Advance Response Neck

The HP 635 W has an advance response maple neck that offers a comfortable play that feels good no matter your playing style. The maple wood offers bright characteristics with lots of bite and sustain, while the silky smooth action compliments the maple to unleash the player’s full potential. The neck is coupled with a richlite fingerboard that not only looks amazing, but offers ebony like tones, favoring fundamental tones for a responsive, bright sound with a snappy crisp attack. The richlite and maple work together to bring some tightness to the guitars tone, adding sizzle to the highs, firmness to the lows, and a snappy attack to the midrange.

LR Baggs Electronics

Gibson’s HP 635 W 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 volume control. The System 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.

Mini Nickel Grover Tuners

Grover's mini tuners are an engineering marvel, Taking the original design and making them smaller to create plenty of space between each tuner for easy tuning. 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.
