The Gibson J-185 EC Hi Performance Model Electro Acoustic in Transparent Ebony is a heavenly model with a dark character. Building on the majesty of its heritage, the Gibson J-185 EC Hi Performance model retains a classic vibe and rich acoustic timbre, whilst packing a few nifty appointments - including the LR Baggs Anthem Pro electronics system that allows you to hit the stage or studio with style. Everything that made Gibson’s line of jumbos the stuff of legend is present and correct, whilst the addition of a single-cutaway guarantees much easier upper fret access. Of course the sound that has seen Gibson Jumbos retain their popularity is in place with warm low end and rich treble in attendance, creating a tonal dynamism that makes this acoustic perfect for whatever genre of music you choose to perform.
Sublime Jumbo Body
Giving the Gibson J-185 EC Hi-Performance its powerful voice is a Sitka spruce top that is combined with flamed maple back & sides. These woods go through the same process of selection and drying as they always have, to ensure the qualities of the wood are brought out. The generous depth of the body creates a dense mid to low-end energy, whilst the flamed maple ensures that the timbre is crisp with a healthy presence across the upper frequencies to soften output. By employing a Sitka spruce top, the output is projected with fantastic power to secure a vast dynamic range. The top is reinforced using X-bracing to prevent buckling or warping over time, preserving the longevity of the instrument. The body is finished in transparent ebony, which is bound to create a striking aesthetic.
Joined to the body of the Gibson J-185 EC is a maple neck, carved to a comfortable contour profile. This has been topped with a fingerboard crafted from rosewood, which has rolled, slightly bevelled edges, making the guitar extremely comfortable to play, while the mother-of-pearl split block inlays guide your way in style. The Gibson J185 EC’s headstock crown logo has also been crafted from mother of pearl, and features a set of highly accurate, and stable Grover tuning machines that are finished in gold.
The L.R. Baggs' Anthem preamp has been fitted in order to take you from the studio to the stage with minimal fuss. The J-185's projection is easily adequate for small gigs, but when you're looking to take it to the next level, Gibson and LR Baggs have given you everything you need. Simply plug-in and you're good to go.
The Gibson J-185 EC Hi Performance Model Electro Acoustic in Transparent Ebony is a sublime model for both live performers and studio session masters. If you're looking for a lifelong performance partner, then look no further than this incredible guitar.
