Gibson / J-185 60th Anniversary Quilted Custom Maple / 2012 / Natural / Guitar For Sale
The 60th Anniversary J-185 Quilt Custom is crafted from the finest traditional tonewoods, including a solid top made from prized Adirondack red spruce, with elegant quilted-maple back and sides, and completed in one of two hand-sprayed nitrocellulose finishes: Antique Natural or Vintage Sunburst. The top is supported by a traditional J-185 X-brace with scalloped spruce braces, and trimmed in multi-ply binding with a double-ring rosette, multi-ply back binding, and a tortoise J-185 pickguard. The neck is carved from solid mahogany to a comfortable modified "V" profile, attached with a compound dovetail joint secured with hot hide glue. The rosewood fingerboard is inlaid with mother-of-pearl parallelograms, to mirror the mother-of-pearl Gibson headstock logo and crown inlay. Offering the superb playing feel to which Gibson lovers are accustomed, the guitar is built to the popular 24-3/4" scale length, with a neck width of 1.725" across the traditional bone nut.
A top-flight acoustic instrument offering deep, lush tones and impressive volume and projection, the 60th Anniversary J-185 Quilt Custom is also equipped with an L.R. Baggs™ Element® pickup that amplifies that tone for those occasions that require plugging in. Gold vintage-style Gotoh™ tuners ensure smooth action and an efficient performance, while a traditional belly-up rosewood bridge with a Tusq saddle and mother-of-pearl Maltese Cross inlays provides optimum resonance. All in all, the 60th Anniversary J-185 Quilt Custom is a gorgeous recreation of one of Gibson's rare acoustics, perfect for the 21st century player and collector alike. It is limited to just 60 guitars worldwide, so see a Gibson Five Star Dealer today to inquire about availability.
Every guitar includes a Gibson hardshell case with blue plush lining, an owner's manual, and Gibson Gold Warranty.

We believe that the BEGINNERbeginner is the life-blood of the music industry. The beginner gets treated with special attention when looking for his-her first instrument. The larger JobFactory AG company, dedicated to helping jobless young people get the training they need to enter the workforce, has shown its dedication to the youth of Basel, and the JFM continues this mission. We encourage parents when looking for their childrens first music making experiences to visit the JFM and talk with our staff.
The PROFESSIONAL MUSICIAN, audiophile, and ‘gear junkie’ is revered and respected here as well. Our staff consists of professional musicians and gear fanatics, always looking to discuss new gear, live sound possibilities and recording techniques with their peers.
Our INVENTORY is without compare here in Basel. We have designed the inventory with variety being the most important factor. Jazz players, metal, blues, indie, folk and classically minded players will all find something that speaks to them. Traditional styles, the strangely shaped, vintage and retro, modern, and contemporary are all represented.
CUSTOMER SERVICE is our number one priority here. If we do not have what you want, we will order it for you! We will do the research, and find the exact right piece of gear for you.
Typical Guitar Store ‘snobby’ attitude, is not welcome here. We have EXTENSIVE KNOWLEDGE here, but, we do NOT know everything! We are looking to extend our own knowledge as well as transferring it to the customer. We encourage customers to come to our store and relax, have a coffee and cake at our Take-away. Lets talk about gear! Share your knowledge with us.
We are never offended by the customer who is ‘just looking’. Guitars are meant to played. They are not merely things at which to be stared. We like to see a fine instrument in a persons hands, not on the wall.
If you are a fan of FX PEDALS, then welcome to Paradise! We have, without doubt, the best pedal selection in Switzerland. Everything is available for the customer to test, from the basic clean-boost to multi effectors and synth generators.
