Overview

The handcrafted J-185 acoustic-electric guitar is part of the Gibson Acoustic Modern Classics Series of guitars. The J-185 guitar is a jumbo cutaway featuring a premium Sikta spruce top and AAA flamed maple neck, back, and sides. The V-shaped profile neck is great for both chords and melody phrases. A rosewood fingerboard is beautifully inlaid with mother-of-pearl parallelograms. Binding includes 4-ply on the top and single-ply on the back and neck.

An active electronics pickup with rim control EQ and built-in tuner plus Grover Rotomatic Tuners keep your J-185 guitar always sounding its best. The traditional Gibson rosewood bridge with mother-of-pearl dots and white bridge pins finish off this beautiful acoustic-electric guitar.

Comments about Gibson J-185 Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I have this guitar in a Cherry finish, people find it to be a strikingly beautiful guitar. It has incredible tone and resonance, even without the pickups. I love everything about it, there are absolutely no flaws to it. It's extremely impressive and hard to put down, I would definitely reccomend this guitar to anyone who loves to play.
