Overview

The first Gibson J-185 was introduced in 1951, giving players a broader choice of flat-top acoustic guitars. It quickly became a hit. With a slightly smaller body than Gibson’s fabled Super Jumbos, the J-185 offers an excellent alternative for players seeking a smaller body style without sacrificing acoustic power and projection. Traditionally, the J-185 features a body length of 20-1/4 inches, a width of 16 inches, and a body depth of 4-7/8 inches, producing an big sound with clear acoustics, making it equally impressive for powerful strumming or delicate fingerpicking, and everything in between. Includes hardshell case.
