Gibson J-185 Limited Edition Trans Black (Serial #10146008)

One of Gibson’s most rare flat top acoustics, the J-185 had a short-lived run back in 1951. Bringing it back it all its vintage glory, Gibson has produced this limited edition in a striking Trans Black finish.  The jumbo style body and spruce/maple tone woods produce a gigantic low end, with a gorgeous, harmonically rich top end.  The J-185 is set to become a standard among aficionados and pro players alike.
