Dale Fairbanks has made a phenomenal entry into the world of hand made top-flight acoustic guitars, his specialty being the recreation of some of the great vintage Gibson and similar models, with his versions often surpassing the quality if the originals. This one is his clone of the J-185, with maple back & sides, Adirondack spruce top and hide-glue build. I'm sure many would agree that it surpasses most originals in both sound and beauty.
This is a warm, rich and responsive instrument, with a "C" shaped neck and a gorgeous sunburst over the most beautiful maple. It's in as-new condition.
