2019 Gibson J-185

2019 Gibson J-185

The find of the year so far, a near-mint condition, less than a year old, exact rendition of what was definitely Gibson’s hippest guitar of the 1950s and it’s accurate right down to the bridge, with those way cool Maltese crosses. Has the body shape of their famous J-200 Jumbo but in a much more manageable size, and without that flowery decor of the J-200. This guitar was bought new less than a year ago by a very respected customer of mine who now needs to move on. There is literally not a scratch on it; it is virtually unplayed, perfect. The action is amazingly easy, definitely more so than is usual on these. The maple back and sides (and that flamed maple is a knockout!) give it a very strong mid-range and real clean highs and lows, a great complement to anything made by Martin, all of whose guitars are either mahogany or rosewood. If you think about the Everly Brothers hits of the 1950s, their Every Brothers Models were essentially J-185s with a black finish and different inlays, and are what they are playing all the dang time and are quite a prominent part of their sound. This wonderful Gibson is so much fun, all set up right here in our own shop with a real easy action for a hugely enjoyable playing experience. All yours for the great, great price of only $2995 w/ohsc
