Up for sale is a stunning 2022 Gibson Custom Shop 1952 J-185 in Antique Natural.Has "Demo" on back of headstock, I imagine this was a Gibson Mod Shop guitar. Overall in excellent condition less some light surface wear. Comes complete with its original brown Lifton case. The case itself has a busted latch and thus closes / latches oddly. Weight: 4lbs. 14oz.
One of the most fabled Gibsons of all time, the J-185 was originally released in 1951. Designed to be just slightly smaller in proportion to the larger SJ-200, the J-185 used similar appointments, Sitka spruce and maple back and sides for its construction. This Custom Historic 1952 J-185 is enhanced with a thermally aged Sitka spruce top and gorgeous flame maple back and sides. Sporting classic J-185 appointments including iconic Maltese crosses inlaid in mother-of-pearl on the open slot bridge, this is a rare model, but highly desired by artists and performers worldwide.
