Beautiful Combination of Tonewoods

Using the finest traditional tonewoods, the J-185 Custom benefits from a solid top made from prized Adirondack red Spruce. The back and sides are produced from quilted Maple and have been hand-sprayed with a nitrocellulose finish. One of the main features of this guitar is its beautiful choice of woods, that make it a thing of beauty as well as an instrument.

The Rosewood fingerboard features Mother of Pearl parallelograms, and add an elegant contrast to the dark wood. This same detail is mirrored on the bridge and headstock logo, and adds a final touch.
