One of the most fabled Gibson's of all time, this Limited Edition J-185 is enhanced with an Adirondack red spruce top and gorgeous big leaf maple back and sides. Only 75 of this beautifully customized 1950's model will be made, each sporting classic J-185 appointments, including iconic crosses inlaid in mother-of-pearl on the bridge. And for the first time in history, this rare model with an even rarer tonewood combination will be finished in a luscious Sunset Burst.
Setup nice and ready to play. Booming bass with crisp clear highs. This guitar is gorgeous.
The Adirondack red spruce top is well regarded for its volume and clarity, while the highly figured big leaf maple on the back and sides displays stunning beauty. These upgraded woods combine to enhance this J-185's big low end and powerful, articulate top.
The J-185 Red Spruce's Adirondack red spruce top is well known as one of the best tonewoods for bringing out the clarity and power in an acoustic guitar. And the flamed big leaf maple not only sounds powerful while remaining focused, but it is also a treat to behold. Together, they give you a guitar that both looks and sounds amazing.
The J-185 Red Spruce comes with LR Baggs's Element Active acoustic pickup system. This system features an under-saddle transducer that enhances the coupling between the pickup and the guitar to improve the sensitivity of the transducer for a robust and natural acoustic sound. The low-profile controls keep the vintage vibe of the J-185 Red Spruce intact.
Comes with Gibson hard shell case and Certificate of Authenticity.
