You are looking at a Gibson Limited Edition J-185 Quilt Vine Acoustic-Electric Guitar Vintage Sunburst, serial number 13485009. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase.

With custom appointments and a clear, well-balanced tonal response, the Limited Edition J-185 Quilt Vine from Gibson Acoustic stands out in a crowd both visually and sonically. Exquisite, beautifully figured grade-AAA quilt maple is married to a Sitka spruce top with traditional scalloped X-bracing for a crisp, powerful acoustic voice with shimmering highs and a full low-end. The J-185 body shares the same curvaceous lines as its larger counterpart, the Super Jumbo, but its slightly smaller size offers an exceptionally comfortable playing experience. The J-185 Quilt Vine comes dressed in a Vintage Sunburst nitro lacquer finish and the top showcases a striking abalone rosette and a distinctive tortoise pickguard. The first thing you probably noticed about this gorgeous J-185 Quilt Vine aside from the stunning back/side wood is the fingerboard inlay. The fingerboard is adorned with an elaborate hand-inlaid vine that's made with beautiful mother-of-pearl and colorful abalone to provide an elegant aesthetic touch. The headstock also bears a mother-of-pearl block Gibson logo, a mother-of-pearl torch inlay, and a set of gold Grover open-back tuning machines. For plug-in-and-play flexibility, the Limited Edition J-185 Quilt Vine comes equipped with LR Baggs VTC electronics for superb amplified tone and performance. Other features include a comfortable short-scale mahogany neck, a 1.725" bone nut, and a traditional belly up rosewood bridge with a bone saddle. Comes complete with a hardshell case and a Certificate of Authenticity.
