Gibson J185 EC Acoustic Electric Guitar with CaseGibson J185 EC Acoustic Electric Guitar with Case

Building on the traditional foundation of Gibson's Jumbo body style, the Gibson J185 EC Acoustic Electric Guitar moves into the present with a cutaway design for easier playability and increased aesthetic appeal. Includes hardshell case. The perfect acoustic for just about any musical genre, the sound has a warm, huge low end with ringing, harmonically rich treble response, and is capable of achieving a pure dynamic contrast. Gibson J185 EC Acoustic Electric Guitar Features Gibson Logo Nickel Grover Rotomatic Tuners Crown Peghead Logo Pickguard Abalone Rosette Rosewood Fingerboard with Rolled Edges and Split Parallelogram Inlays Body Tonewoods (back, sides and top) Fishman Aura Pro Acoustic Pickup System Bracing Tapered Dovetail Neck Joint Radius Top Nitrocellulose Finish Body Binding Includes Hardshell Case Nickel Grover Rotomatic Tuners Grover's original Rotomatic tuners are an engineering marvel, with style and performance exactly suited for the J-185 EC. With a gear ratio of 14:1, the Rotomatics deliver precision tuning in a durable housing that provides maximum protection for the gear and string post. All moving parts are cut for exact meshing, eliminating the possibility of slippage. A countersunk tension screw lets players regulate the tuning tension to any degree. A special lubricant inside the gear box provides smooth and accurate tuning stability. Crown Peghead Logo Gibson put the first crown peghead logo on an ES-300 back in 1940, and it has graced the headstocks of many legendary Gibson guitars ever since, including today's J-185 EC. Over the years, it has also been called a thistle because of the group of flowering plants with the sharp prickles, though Gibson has preferred to call it a crown. Pickguard The pickguard for the J-185 EC is a custom series designed especially for its distinct cutaway shape. As with all of Gibson Acoustic's pickguards, the coloring, inlay, and binding are all done by hand. Abalone Rosette The rosette on the J-185 EC is a double-ring rosette with an abalone-filled middle. The main ring consists of seven-ply binding, and the second ring is three-ply binding, adding a stylish, understated elegance to the J-185 EC. Rosewood Fingerboard with Rolled Edges and Split Parallelogram Inlays The fingerboard of Gibson's J-185 EC is constructed from the highest grade rosewood on earth, which is personally inspected and qualified by Gibson's team of skilled experts before it enters the Gibson factories. The resilience of this durable wood makes the fingerboard extremely balanced and stable, and gives each chord and note unparalleled clarity and bite.

Gibson Brad Paisley J45 Round Shouldered J45 Dreadnought Body Adirondack Red Spruce Top with Mahogany Back and Sides Modified V Profile 1-piece Mahogany Neck 20 Fret Rosewood Fingerboard Custom Vintage-Style, Open Back Nickel Tuners Model Fishman Ellipse Aura pickup and Preamp System Includes Gibson Standard Hardshell Case Body and Finish This big-bodied, round-shouldered dreadnought is built in the image of the legendary 1942 J45 Legend Model, from the classic tonewood combination of solid Adirondack Red Spruce top and solid mahogany back and sides. Its top is supported by original 1942-spec red spruce scalloped X-bracing bonded by hide glue, a structure and design known for its superior strength and resonance. To top it off, a hand-sprayed nitrocellulose lacquer custom early 1960's style Cherry Sunburst finish, elegant multi-ply top binding and single-ply back binding, and a tortoiseshell pickguard with paisley engraving ensure the Brad Paisley Model looks just as sublime as it sounds. Neck and Headstock The guitar's neck and headstock are custom made much in the tradition of the original J45, with the 24 3/4 inches scale length as featured on several classic Gibson flat-tops. Carved from a single piece of quarter-sawn mahogany to Brad Paisley's preferred Modified V profile, and topped with a rosewood fingerboard, the design incorporates Gibson's lauded 17-degree back-angled headstock, which contributes greatly to the instrument's resonance and sustain, and the narrower dimensions of 1.625 inches at the nut, as specified by Paisley himself. The headstock is adorned with the pre-War Gibson logo with the banner emblem across the center of its face. Hardware The Brad Paisley Model carries an up-market hardware set, including custom hand-made vintage-style nickel tuners with cream buttons, and belly-up rosewood bridge with traditional bridge pins and bone saddle.
