    Can't speak to the smaller J-165 but my J-185/EC30 Blues King sounds great plugged in. It's got a Fishman Prefix Pro installed in it.

    I have a straight acoustic Gibson SJ 200 Cautaway with the Super 400 neck and other details. I always liked the Blues King. Does yours have any eq built into the box? I don't like that kind of thing.

    "new 'big sky' radiused fingerboard edge?" they're trademarking sanding techniques now?

    i have heard the rosewood mini-jumbo gibsons, and they do sound quite good.
    i've also heard the aura pickup in other stuff, and it sounds quite good as well.

    IMHO, nothing beats my J-185 EC for gigging.

    I still can't get over the backwards bridge. I'm sure they sound fine for a Gibson acoustic, but I have always felt that someone made a mistake with that bridge placement and it stuck.
