Overview

The J-185 was introduced in 1951 and quickly became a bestseller in the jumbo line. With a slightly smaller body than its fabled cousin, the SJ-200, the J-185 offers an excellent alternative for players looking for the power and projection of the Super Jumbo in a smaller body style.

This limited edition features a solid Adirondack red spruce top, solid flame maple back and sides, produces a clear, bright tone with beautifully balanced sonic range. Classic finishes like the mother-of pearl maltese cross bridge inlays, vintage bracing, fret-over binding and vintage fret wire complete the authentic look and feel of this rare offering. Equipped with an L.R. Baggs Element VTC pickup. Ships with a Certificate of Authenticity.

Dovetail neck-to-body joint, hand-fitted and secured with hide glue ensures unequalled resonance transfer from strings to body
