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.
High-quality acoustic instruments have been synonymous with the Gibson name since the 1800s. Used and vintage models still command a premium on the market, and those same construction techniques continue to be used today, with appointments such as solid tonewood tops and bodies, beautifully applied nitrocellulose lacquer finishes, great inlay work, and exquisite binding. When you bring this limited-edition J-185 Red Spruce into your collection, you can rest assured you’re getting a guitar you’ll love for decades to come.
