  • Description

    The iconic, rare Gibson J-185 pairs an even rarer Trans Black finish and classic J-185 appointments for this incredibly limited 65-piece run of handcrafted instruments.

    The Sitka spruce top and exquisite flame maple back & sides combined with Gibson's slighty smaller SJ-style body gives this Limited Edition J-185 Trans Black crystal clear trebles, a full-bodied low end, and a truly dynamic voice that'll sound amazing whether you're strumming those massive cowboy chords or playing delicate fingerstyle arrangements. The gorgeous figure of the back and sides look absolutely stunning beneath the beautiful, rare hand-stained Trans Black finish. Not only does she look and sound amazing, but she also plays like a dream thanks to the mahogany neck's shorter 24.75" scale length, its fast SlimTaper profile, and 12"-radius rosewood fingerboard with a 1.725" Tusq nut.

    She's a rare collector's piece that any acoustic guitar enthusiast would love to add to their collection, but at the same time, she will make the perfect addition to any performing guitarist's arsenal thanks to the premium onboard L.R. Baggs Element VTC electronics. The headstock of the J-185 Trans Black is also crowned with a set of precise, accurate nickel Grover Rotomatic Keystone tuners for optimum performance.

    The traditional J-185 appointments are all here, too, including a rosewood bridge with legendary mother-of-pearl Maltese cross inlays, classic split parallelogram fingerboard inlays, and the distinctively-shaped J-185 tortoise pickguard. Comes complete with a hardshell case and Certificate of Authenticity.
