1994 Gibson Chicago-35 acoustic-electric guitar with a Vintage Sunburst finish. Overall in great condition and it is a fantastic player. Gibson produced the limited-edition Chicago-35 for only two years. It is a J-35 but with special high-end finishes, upgraded inlays, and a soft v-neck. The body features a Sitka spruce top with mahogany back & sides. It also has a factory-installed AccuVoice under-saddle pickup. A J-35 is essentially the same as a J-45 but with slightly different bracing patterns. The Vintage Sunburst finish on this is gorgeous and accentuates the beautiful wood grain in the top. The guitar weighs just 4.26 pounds. It has a 1.725" nut width. The string action is 2.72mm at the 12th fret. The neck thickness measures 0.825" at the 1st fret and 0.900" at the 9th fret.
Overall in great condition with some typical wear for its age. The top is still glossy and beautiful. There are a handful of dings throughout, and a few scuffs but nothing major. The bridge is solid and has no lifting. There is one very tiny 1" hairline split on the soundhole, but it stops at the internal bracing and does not continue past it. The binding all looks great. The back shows no noticeable worming, just scuffs and handling wear in the finish. The clear coat is starting to check off a little bit on the back seem, but it is purely cosmetic and can't be felt. The neck heel also has some light clear coat wear around the seam but again is only in the clear coat gloss coating, not in the underfinish. The back of the neck has minimal wear with only a couple wedding ring dings. The rosewood fingerboard looks great with some very light fingerwear. The frets have a small amount of visible fretwear on the first few frets but it is very minor. The frets have all been polished to a bright shine and there is a ton of fretlife. The nut is in perfect shape. The truss rod works and the neck is perfectly straight. The headstock has some light scuffs but all minor. The original tuners work perfectly. The electronic pickup is original and works great.
Includes the original hardshell case in very good condition. All latches work, as does the handle. The handle has a little bit of tearing in the leather covering but still works great. The exterior of the case has some scuffs from storage. The interior of the case is in good condition. Does not include any other accessories.
