Sitka spruce and Birdseye maple tonewoods provide volume and clarity
This Gibson Acoustic J-185 Birdseye Maple acoustic-electric guitar is a very robust instrument with a direct, punchy tone and a ton of headroom, thanks to its premium Sitka spruce top. Equally subtle and in-your-face, this acoustic guitar's high velocity of sound and strong fundamental tone ensure a broad dynamic response. Pick quietly or strum forcefully - this J-185 can take whatever you throw at it. Also, the addition of Birdseye maple back and sides lends an excellent separation to this J-185's tone, ensuring that each note of a chord rings separately rather than sounding muddy or clustered.
LR Baggs Element electronics provide phenomenal onstage sound
Gibson Acoustic loaded the J-185 Birdseye Maple acoustic-electric guitar with LR Baggs's Element VTC pickup system, a popular choice among AudioBuy.com.au Australia's acoustic guitarists. This system features a low-profile undersaddle transducer that removes unnecessary internal components, enhancing the coupling between the pickup and the guitar for a robust, dynamic, lively acoustic guitar tone. With an unobtrusive volume control mounted just inside the soundhole, the Element gives your J-185 the amplification you need, with zero compromises for tone or convenience.
The Gibson Acoustic J-185 produces power, projection, and playability
Why do Gibson jumbos sound so distinctive? Why do these guitars project so well? A lot has to do with the confluence of design, construction, and the experience of gifted craftsmen. Gibson jumbos have always had a reputation for being able to cut through in live situations, with a throaty yet rich, balanced tone that made them popular in all genres. The J-185 Birdseye Maple's solid Sitka spruce top, Birdseye maple back and sides, and mahogany neck are handmade from high-quality tonewoods that will only improve with age.
