My Favorite Guitar

By 3 Feet High

Comments about Gibson J-185 True Vintage Acoustic Guitar:

I bought a Gibson J-185 a few years ago and am just constantly amazed what a great sounding guitar it is compared to many other models and brands costing much more. The build on the J-185 I own is rock solid while being light weight. The tonal range from bass to midrange to treble is perfectly balanced with projection to die for. I have played it regularly at gigs for the last six years and only recently purchased another guitar just to give it a break from almost constant use. I don't know if they are all built or sound this good but I just feel so fortunate to own this guitar that I just gush when ever anybody asks me about it. I would give it more stars if I could.

Comments about Gibson J-185 True Vintage Acoustic Guitar:

I was lucky enough to play this guitar in a Gibson Showcase store in Nashville recently and it is truly a work of art. Everything from the bridge to the headstock is just elegant. Not only does it look great, it sounds even better. I currently own a (much less expensive) Alvarez RD8C and while it is by far my favorite guitar, it doesn't even compare to the tone and quality that the Gibson J-185 does. If you can afford it, definitely buy this guitar!
