Epiphone 185


Recommended Posts

I've seen a used Epiphone Jumbo 185 guitar for sale in a shop.


Can't find any history of these so any info welcome...


It was finished in a beautiful sunburst with a nice wood-effect headstock, much like the Gibson Songwriter.

I say go for it.

I bought an AJ-18s12 (slope shoulder) 12 string for $145 (US) and a great guitar.

Great build and great sound. Low action for a 12 with no buzz.

Keep looking for an affordable 6 string version (AJ-18sce)


If the SJ is anything like the AJ, it will be a great addition.

Congrats Al, you've just aged and ID'd you guitar.


You won't get that kind of service over at the AGF (are they still funct?)



Ah.. it's exactly the SJ 18S - me mistaking the S for a 5 - geeso!


Same inlays too!


Cheers for that!
