    Comments about Gibson Limited Edition J-185 Custom Quilt Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    first let's get the cons out of the way. Ready? NONE!
    this is the best acoustic I've ever put in my hands by far. Nice full sound, not boomy at all. It sounds so good plugged in too. The pictures don't do this guitar justice at all, I was blown away when I saw the back and sides! very well made. I played on a sj-200 a few years ago and it smelled like glue and played "okay". I've never heard of a j-185 and I actually saw this one after I had placed an order for a Taylor 614e. I wanted the taylor for the feel of the neck and the expression system, but I'm so glad I got this instead. This one has the old school sound and the feel of the neck is surprisingly better than the taylors! I was pretty nervous about buying a guitar this expensive sight unseen, but it all worked out.
