    Its the other G brand. ;)

    Another Gibson acoustic this time........have I told y’all how much I love Gibson acoustics?

    This is the Gibson CJ-165, and it is spectacular. A mini jumbo that plays and sounds SO good. I am elated. This makes a trio of Gibson acoustics now.......

    Gorgeous (all three!). While I have 9 Gibsons, all are solid body electrics. So many guitars, so little time.

    Congratulations on the new flat top, may she serve you well! So when are you going to get that Mosrite? :D

    Congratulations that’s a beauty!! I’m so jealous. That’s great trio you have. But the CJ-165 is a dream. I’d love one of those

    Congratulations, and nice alternate-G family.

    I don't get the concept of mini jumbo. Thought jumbo was about the size, is that about the shape?

    It is funny isn’t it?

    For me, a J-200 is just slightly too large. I’m 5’9 with medium hands and weigh around 155. I’ve always dug that J-200 LOOK though, so this is basically that for me. Also the tone is a bit more focused and present due to the smaller size imo. It’s not boomy.

    Sorry, had not understod, thought that was a usual / "official" name for a range of guitar. I'm still a noob in English guitar wordings :oops:
    Now that I get it, yes, that's funny.

    Same, after conversion on the internet, you're taller than I am: I'm only 1.73 m for kind the same weigh (70 kg) :p
