Very nice Gibson Everly Brothers guitar J-180 in ebony finish. Not quite as big as the SJ200 but a very big sound from this distinctive looking guitar. Signature double pick guards project the guitar and give it a bit of flair. Overall very good condition with a one scratch on the top measuring a bit more than an inch. Does not penetrate the finish or the wood but was difficult to capture in the pictures. Some buckle rash on the back, again does not break through the finish. The upper pick guard has a small section pulling away (see the last pic) from the guitar where the right arm rests. This also is minor and I will leave it for the new buyer to glue it or leave it as is.
The Everly Brothers signature acoustic dates back to 1962. Easily identified by its double flowing pickguards, it ran from 1962 – 1972 simply as the Everly Brothers model.
In 1986 the model was relaunched as J-180. This guitar was based on the jumbo J-185 but with a few fancier details such as star inlays. It was once again shortened to the Everly Brothers model from ’92 – ’94 and then the Everly until ’96 when it once again ran as the J-180.
