'A more compact J-180EC with all the beauty and style Gibson has to offer. The slightly slimmer body depth delivers an unsurpassed balance of lows, mids, and highs, with equal response to every note on the fretboard.'
We love Gibson acoustics here at Premier Guitars and this is a lovely example. It is acoustically a loud, responsive and punchy guitar that also sounds great plugged in, with plenty of versatility in the tone settings through the onboard Fishman Prefix Plus pickup.

This Gibson J-180EC Jumbo was bought from well-respected Nashville dealer - Fanny's House of Music in 2018. It is in great condition. There is some light swirling on the pickguard, a little buckle rash on the back and some small scratches and dents around the body but nothing offensive. There is a dent at the back of the headstock, this was expertly repaired by a Gibson luthier at Fanny's prior to the current owner's tenure. These small blemishes have no effect on the playing quality of this great guitar.
The guitar has been setup by Paul Carroll of Jack's Music in Newcastle and is certainly play-ready.
This is a lovely guitar – some nice, unique touches and top craftsmanship are combined in the best way possible. The mother of pearl star inlay is rare and looks spectacular. And the sound is amazing – everything you would expect from a Gibson Jumbo.
Comes in its Gibson hardshell case in good condition.
