Price : US $1,275.
1995 Gibson J-180 Everly jumbo acoustic guitar, with L.R. Baggs soundhole mounted dual source pickup (no holes drilled in guitar.). The ''mic'' part of the pickup is not working, but the ''volume'' portion works fine. I don't know whether the ''mic'' is fried or just has a loose connection, I've never missed it so I've never had it fixed.
The Everly has a spruce top with figured maple back/sides/neck. Double black pickguard, multi-striped bound body/rosette. 14/20 fret bound rosewood fingerboard with pearl star inlays. Rosewood mustache bridge with pearl star inlays. Nickel tuners. I measured the fingerboard at 1 3/4 inches at the nut. The nut and saddle were replaced/upgraded when the Baggs pickup was installed when the guitar was new. This version of The Everly was in production at the Bowsman, Montana factory from 1994-1997.
I purchased this guitar new in August 1995 (serial # 92265013). Overall, I'd rate the guitar an 8 out of 10. There is some dulling of the finish on the back and two small marks on the back of the neck from contact with a guitar stand. Both are shown as best as I can photograph them. Plenty of light scratches on the pickguard, but that's what it's there for. Also some very minor fret wear in the cowboy chord positions. This guitar has been setup for 11/50's with an approx. 1/8 inch gap at the 12th fret. No buzzing, excellent intonation, easy player. No dents, cracks
