Product information - Gibson J-185 Original VSB

Electroacoustic mini jumbo acoustic guitar, solid, Sitka spruce top, curly maple body, mahogany neck, rosewood fingerboard, bone nut, case included.

With the new Gibson J-185 Original VSB , the traditional American manufacturer presents a fully solid acoustic guitar in mini-jumbo design, which conveys the typical Gibson charm of the 1950s in addition to a well-balanced sound. Thanks to a construction consisting of a noble Sitka spruce top and a flamed maple body, the instrument produces a fast responding sound, which is pronounced in the mid and treble frequencies and enriched with warm bass frequencies. In addition to a traditional hand-scalloped-X-bracing, a thin nitro lacquer also ensures a perfect sound development, so that the guitar develops its potential directly even with light strokes. Another attractive feature is the easily playable mahogany neck with a rosewood fretboard, which allows comfortable access to all 20 frets due to its flat slim taper profile. A meticulously crafted bone nut with a width of 43.81 mm and a corresponding bridge inlay ensure clean intonation over the entire scale length of 628.65 mm. The instrument is rounded off with Gotoh Keystone tuners made of nickel and the parallelogram inlays made of mother-of-pearl typical of the model. Amplified, the acoustic sound of the guitar is reproduced authentically and cleanly, since the manufacturer uses a high-quality L.R. Baggs VTC pickup system. The Gibson J-185 Original VSB comes with a sturdy case and a Gibson Accessory Kit.
