You are looking at a Gibson Limited Edition J-185 Custom Quilt Acoustic-Electric Guitar, serial number 11705071. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase.

This Gibson Limited Edition J-185 Custom Quilt was crafted with discerning acoustic player and collector in mind, offering the perfect mixture of bold sound, premium eye-catching aesthetics & appointments, and superb  comfort & playability. The J-185 shrinks down Gibson's Super Jumbo body dimensions a bit, yet the guitar still maintains that legendary SJ projection, volume and power.

A stunning blend of top-shelf tonewoods and truly exquisite looks, strikingly figured grade-AAA quilt maple back and sides are paired with a Sitka spruce top with traditional scalloped X-bracing to produce a beautiful, sparkling acoustic voice with superb clarity and tonal definition. The 24.75"-scale mahogany plays like a dream thanks to its comfortable Slim Taper profile, its 12"-radius rosewood fingerboard, and its cozy 1.725" nut width. Classic parallelogram fretboard inlays and Maltese cross bridge inlays in mother-of-pearl add to the aesthetic allure of the J-185 Custom Quilt. As much a performer as it is a looker, the J-185 Custom Quilt comes right out of the factory with upgraded high-quality LR Baggs Anthem electronics to offer exceptional amplified tone and performance. An Antique Natural nitrocellulose lacquer finish, a traditional J-185 pickguard, gold Grover Rotomatic tuners, a Belly up rosewood bridge with Tusq saddle, and a Tusq nut round out this top-notch package. Comes complete with a hardshell case and a Certificate of Authenticity from Gibson Acoustic.
