|Comments||Gibson’s Jumbo guitars – the J-200, J-185 – have been popular since the J-200 was introduced in the 1938. There have been many variations, and between 2006 and 2008 the CJ-165 was built at the Gibson plant in Bozeman, Montana, under the watchful supervision of Ren Ferguson. Another variation of this guitar, the CJ-165 EC was produced until 2009 – this version had a cutaway and installed pickup – the EC stood for Electric Cutaway, not Eric Clapton!
This 2007 Gibson CJ-165 is in very good condition with just a few minor scuffs and two small dings on the top.
