This acoustic pickguard section shows designs specific to Gibson® J-185 Guitars. First made in 1951 the J-185 was designed to be slightly smaller than the J-200. Our acoustic pickguard groups all have shapes that will work universally over a number of acoustic guitars build by various different manufacturers. If your guitar came without a pickguard you may want to look at the generic designs just to pick something that will fit. You can of cause fit any of the manufactures shapes to different instruments meaning that you can change the look of your instrument by choosing a design from another manufacturer. Enjoy browsing through the many designs possible and have fun picking your favorite or have us create something truly unique through our custom shop.
