2008 Gibson CJ-165 – £1999

NEW ARRIVAL  Only produced between 2006 – 2008, the CJ-165 provides an alternative to Gibson’s medium bodied jumbos such as the J185. If you’re looking for big tone in an easier to handle package, the Gibson CJ-165 may be the answer – the mini jumbo size and slightly narrower body makes it easy to play while traditional deluxe Gibson appointments make it instantly familiar to look at. The top is solid premium Spruce while the back and sides are beautiful Flamed Maple, and 1930’s style, wide scalloped bracing deliver big tone. Only in production for two years, I think Gibson missed a trick – jumbo size Gibsons can mean the tone becomes overpowering, but on a mini jumbo it gives more controlled drive and clarity – not just a strumming machine but also a great picker. The guitar is in excellent condition, with a very comfortable feeling neck. The guitar has an active underside pickup fitted, with volume control mounted inside the soundhole, and comes in it’s original Gibson embossed hard case.
