One of the most fabled Flat-Tops of all time, the Gibson J-185 was released back in 1951 before being discontinued in '59 after less 1000 guitars were built. Now, for 2019, Gibson have released the J-185 Vintage, a stunning recreation of a lesser seen classic! With its distinctive appearance and beautifully balanced tone, it's a guitar that you aren't going to want to miss.
With a thermally aged Sitka Spruce top on Flame Maple back and sides, it has a deep, resonant and real powerful sound. It's immediately recognisable and serves well both fingerpicking and strumming big chords.
With a beautiful Rosewood fingerboard, the J-185 features mother of pearl parallelogram inlays. It's comfortable, poised and ready to play. With such a stunning natural sound it really holds it own at the lower end, it offers great projection without compromising on note clarity.
Made in Montana USA, the Gibson J-185 is a real beaut, as iconic as ever it's a real players guitar.
