What we say:

At A Glance:

The Gibson J-185 was originally released in 1951 and quickly became one of the most fabled Gibsons of all time. Designed to be slightly smaller than the SJ-200, the J-185 borrows styling tips from it's bigger relative.

The Custom Historic 1952 J-185 is made better with thermally aged sitka spruce top and a beautiful flame maple back and sides.

Adorning iconic Maltese crosses inlaid in mother-of-pearl on the open slot bridge, this guitar is a rarity for sure, highly desired by artists and performers the world over.
