I know quite a bit about the J-160E models, but I've never heard of a Gibson 100th anniversary model for this one -

Gibson Montana Flat tops that were part of the centennial 1994 monthly program :

- January > 1929 L-2
- Febuary > 1933 century
- March > 1934 jumbo
- April > 1934 smeck radio grande
- May > 1938 sj-200
- June > 1939 sj-100
- July > 1948 jumbo 55
- August > 1948 sj-200n
- September > 1950 cf-100e
- October > 1951 j-185
- November > 1963 hummingbird
- December > j-200

No J-160E on the list

All '94s came with that ugly 100th Anniversary label in honor of the company's centennial. This is probably a "regular" J-160E that happens to be a '94. I believe that means it's got a solid top and is X-braced.
