Originally released in the early 1950s and designed to be slightly smaller than its larger companion, the SJ-200, the Gibson J-185 still offers superior performance and tone. Featuring a solid Sitka spruce top and flamed maple back and sides, this acoustic puts out the kind of warm and punchy tone you'd expect from an old Gibson. Simply put, the J-185 produces a beautifully balanced, robust tone that spans the full frequency range. In addition to these fine body tonewoods, a gorgeous mahogany neck with rosewood fingerboard on the J-185 offers players impeccable response and playability.
