Who better to craft a modern take on the small jumbo J-185 than the team at Iris Guitar Company? With a beautiful set of maple for the back and sides and a spruce top, it has a wonderfully honest, direct voice with the perfect touch of brightness, making it perfect for big strumming and bluesy or folky fingerpicking. Not to mention the easy playability we've come to expect from any Iris. Another instant classic from Adam Buchwald and his team!
