OVERVIEW

One of Gibson's best acoustic-electrics with Sitka spruce top and flame maple back and sides.

The J-185 is believed by many to be one of Gibson's best acoustic instruments, yet it seems to be fairly obscure, much to the delight of devoted Gibson lovers. Originally released in the early 1950s and designed to be slighty smaller than its larger companion, the SJ-200, the Gibosn J-185 still offers superior performance and tone. The J-185 Original maintains unsurpassed balance of lows, mids and highs, with equal response to every note on the fretboard. The Gibson J-185 Original acoustic-electric is acclaimed by many as the perfect body size and shape for any player.
