  1. Sweet guitar. Looks like it has really nice grain in the spruce top.

    Beautiful Bird congrats👍
  3. When I first got my J-185 I felt the same way. Great body shape, so comfortable to hold and play but lacking in the tone department. Took a couple of years to really open up and now it's my favorite acoustic.
  4. Interesting I just measured my 2011 J-185 New Vintage it's 4 & 15/16. I didn't realize the first J-185's were 5 & 1/4 must make a difference to the sound.

    Very cool guitar. I love the patina on the headstock.
  6. Nice guitar, but if I bought it the pickguard would have to go.
  7. I was wondering what happened to that guitar. Thanks for posting this. He seems pretty happy with it.
  8. I think I would go with the one I could play in person and buy that assuming you like it.
  9. I'm curious how the new 1952 J-185's compare to an authentic 50's model.
  10. Came across this on YouTube this morning. Very cool 2 part video. I'd love a 50's J-185.
  11. Would have been nice if they mentioned the J-185 is not only slightly smaller than the J-200 but also a shorter scale. Guitar sounds really good in this demo though, glad they brought back the J-185.
  12. I notice they skip a lot of important info on the guitars in the demos and prefer to engage in a lot of idle chit chat. I also can't stand the way he strums the guitars he kinda just flaps at the strings too close to the bridge. Cool guitar all the same.
  13. Cool guitar. That's some nice straight grained Brazilian rosewood.
  14. Currently trying Santa Cruz parabolic low tension strings, I'm still not sold on them though. I had them on my J-185 and they came off pretty quickly. I think Elixir phosphor bronze seem to work best on my Bird.
  15. I own a Taylor 317 and really enjoy playing it. Definitely a different beast than your standard Taylor.
