America's original acoustic-electric made famous by artists such as The Beatles.
First released in 1954, the Gibson J-160E Standard Acoustic-Electric Guitar was made famous by artists such as The Beatles. The J-160E guitar's brassy, high-output acoustic-electric sound combined with punchy, warm acoustic tone accurately re-creates the sound that led a musical revolution in the '60s. The Gibson J-160E guitar is equipped with a solid Sitka spruce top, solid mahogany back and sides, trapezoid fingerboard inlays, single-coil magnetic pickup at the neck, and controls for volume and tone. Gibson includes a hardshell case with the acoustic-electric J-160E.
