Featuring a maple body and Sitka spruce top, the J-180 produces a balanced tone with excellent note separation for fingerstyle playing. The ebony gloss finish and tortoise shell pickguards match the Everly Brothers' original instruments. Vintage-inspired mother-of-pearl star inlays adorn the headstock and neck. An L.R. Baggs undersaddle pickup and preamp lets you amplify your sound at gigs or in the studio. With the Gibson Everly Brothers J-180, experience the same full, resonant voice that created the Everly Brothers' legendary vocal harmonies.

Maple and Spruce Body Resonates With Signature Tone

The Everly Brothers J-180 has a maple body joined to a solid Sitka spruce top, producing a balanced, well-rounded tone. The maple back and sides offer clarity and articulation, while the spruce top provides resonant highs and rich lows. Together, they create the warm, lush acoustic voice that defined the Everly Brothers' tight vocal harmonies. The slim neck profile provides comfort during long practice or gigging sessions. Whether you're a fingerstyle player or strummer, the J-180's tone cuts through a mix with sparkling treble and a tight low end.

Authentic Design Details Honor Rock Pioneers

With its ebony gloss finish and tortoise pickguards, the Everly Brothers J-180 replicates the brothers' original 1960s Gibson guitars. The pickguards were designed in collaboration with the Everlys themselves. Vintage mother-of-pearl star inlays on the headstock and fingerboard add old-school flair. Grover Rotomatic tuners with keystone buttons provide smooth, reliable tuning stability. From its sound to its visual esthetic, the J-180 immerses you in the rich musical legacy of these rock pioneers.
