The legacy of Gibson’s line of celebrated Jumbos is not lost in the J-185 EC. This eye-catching Gibson J-185 EC acoustic-electric builds on the traditional foundation of Gibson’s J-185 body style and moves into the present vanguard with a cutaway design for easier playability. Along with several elegant but modern appointments for increased aesthetic appeal, the sound is everything you expect from a Gibson: warm, huge low-end with ringing, harmonically rich treble response, capable of achieving pure dynamic contrast, which makes it the perfect acoustic for just about any musical genre.
