J-185 info


Recommended Posts



I decided to register here to get info on my Gibson J185 guitar.

I wonder what wood it is made of, and what the differences are with the new Vintage J185.

Mine looks just like the New vintage except for the tuning keys which are metallic, and it doesn't have the celtic crosses

on the bridge, just plain dots.

It is also sunburst unlike the current regular models which are clear wood.

To me it seems like the only difference are the vintage style tuners and the different bridge decoration.

Any knowledge to share?




Mine was built in 2007
