The Gibson J-165 EC Rosewood is a classic six-string acoustic guitar that has a unique look and sound because of the quality materials it's constructed with. A high-quality model, the guitar has a 14-fret body style and a Sitka spruce top and Mahogany neck that has an extremely comfortable feel to it. To go with the Indian Rosewood back and sides, the instrument has an Ebony fingerboard and an Indian Rosewood headplate. Part of the Small Body series, the acoustic guitar has the same shape as Gibson's Jumbo models but with smaller dimensions.
