The Gibson J-250 Acoustic is one of the most dazzling guitars ever built by Gibson”or anybody else.

Rich Gibson Heritage
The artisans at Gibson took the iconic crown inlays of the J-200 fretboard and headstock and made them even more regal and realistic looking to represent the class and rich heritage of the Monarch guitar. Both have extremely intricate inlay patterns that are executed with incredible precision containing multiple inlays within inlays of mother-of-pearl and Paua abolone.

Hand-crafted Monarch Detailing
The delicate volute at the hand stop at the rear of the headstock is hand executed on equally matched bound ebony. The J-250 Monarch is veneered with the guitar's serial number displayed in the banners of the mother-of-pearl inlay.

The Quintessence of Gibson Quality
The extra fretboard ebony binding harkens back to the classiest guitars of the jazz era of the '30s. The complete coverage of body joints with extra wide paua shell, a 3-piece back, and a new floral tortoise pickguard engraving are all done to surpass all fine guitars including the flagship Gibson model J-200.

Regal Gibson Presentation
Finely detailed appointments on the classy Monarch guitar: multi-ply body binding with abalone inlay, ebony moustache bridge with abalone inlays, genuine diamond gem "I" Gibson logo setting, and gold tuners all come together under a lacquer finish to unfold in a regal visual presentation. Sublimely sophisticated tone emanates from the guitar's solid select Sitka spruce top and Madagascar rosewood back and sides. The Eastern Curly Maple neck provides additional warm resonance.

As a 1-time edition of 6, the Gibson Monarch guitar also includes a 20th anniversary Monarch label, 20th anniversary certificate of authenticity to ensure its rarity and notoriety.

Gibson could sell many more a year, but the selection criteria for materials and the extra time to build keep the J-250 Monarch acoustic's numbers low, making each guitar very special.

Comments about Gibson J-250 Monarch Acoustic Guitar:

This guitar is a masterpiece. It gives me the "blues" because it is so unattainable for the average person. The quality and craftsmanship are top quality. This is more of a Blue Chip Investment Piece for a Portfolio, than an instrument that anybody would play, unless you are BB King or Dave Matthews. It belongs in a Museum! It is truely a Monarch, and something to aspire for. Hopefully Gibson can make something similar like a J-200 with the rainbow pearl abalone work on the body, for an average buyers price, like say $3000 to $6000 range.
