The Gibson J185 Modern Classic is made with hand-selected woods and is a premium acoustic guitar. It is a traditional 1950's model with Maltese cross bridge wing inlays, updated to accommodate todays most discriminating players.
The Gibson J-185 uses a premium Sitka spruce top on AAA flame maple back and sides that produce wonderful resonance with tonal integrity. The J-185 has a comfortable jumbo body style, offering supreme playability, sweet timbre and huge projection, an excellent alternative for layers seeking a smaller body style without having to sacrifice acoustic power or projection.
The Gibson J-185 uses a tapered dovetail neck joint, one of the oldest and best ways of securely joining the neck to the body of a guitar, allowing a perfect blend of resonance and sustain. Built from the highest-grade rosewood on earth, the rosewood fingerboard provides an extremely balanced, stable state, giving each chord or note unrivalled clarity and bite.
All acoustic guitars created by Gibson feature a hand-crafted bracing on the inside of the body, this enhances the natural sound of the guitar and projects it further towards the soundhole, offering greater dynamics to the J-185.
Equipped with a Fishman Aura Pro pickup system, the Gibson J185 boasts powerful strumming, delicate fingerpicking and everything in between when amplified. Reproducing the natural sound of the J-185, the pickup system eliminates the need of microphones to project sound further when performing live, or recording in the studio. The preamp system of the Fishman Aura also includes a built-in tuner.
The headstock of the J185 features 6 bona fide, gold-plated Grover Rotamatic tuners in a 3-a-side formation, delivering unparalleled performance and precision. The headstock also features the legendary Crown Peghead logo, first introduced by Gibson in 1940, adding true authenticity to the J-185.
The Gibson J185 features beautiful aesthetics all over. A unique tortoise shell pickguard handcrafted and hand-painted, a subtly beautiful double-ring rosette styled around the soundhole, and pearly white split parallelogram inlays across the fingerboard.
