Saw this the the Twelfth Fret website, here in Toronto:

https://www.12fret.com/instruments/gibson-j185-original-jumbo-steel-string-antique-natural-2005/

They're asking $3,20.00 (CDN).

Very tasteful version of their Jumbo acoustics without all the garrish dreck that adorns the J-200 models.

I post this as a courtesy to the Fans, and have no affiliation with either the seller or the music store.

oh dear, now you’ve gone and done it. After seeing what maple can do when coupled the 185 shape in terms of  projection and balance, I was curious to see how it would be with mahogany, but not up for a custom order. ‘Thought I was over my rosewood phase, but this just might be a perfect match.

I searched the tube over in search of a sound sample and could not find one.

I like the 12th Fret, but that seems like a high price, considering that it has a top seam repair.  I sold my J-185 TV there for a bit more than half that amount a few years back -- I should have asked a bit more! 🙂

If  memory serves, you've had a few of Gibson's "mini jumbos" . . . it seems like that body shape/size would be just the thing to project and balance out rosewood. Any thoughts on this?
