Gibson continues the untarnished legacy of one of their most iconic guitars. This remarkable instrument is timeless and luxurious down to the finest detail.
Elegant, Versatile Design
The SJ-200 could be considered one of the world's most recognisable acoustic guitars. Known for it's flat top, super jumbo design, it's remained largely unchanged since its conception in the 1930s and remains a highly sought-after instrument.
For the 2019 model, Gibson have opted for their tried-and-tested formula of a gorgeous Sitka spruce top and flame maple back & sides. Combined with the broad body and traditional scalloped X-bracing, you'll find a sound that is both full-bodied and sparkling with clarity.
The neck also makes use of a 2-piece maple configuration with a lush rosewood fretboard. You'll also notice the signature mother of pearl crown inlays, long synonymous with the SJ-200 design. So not only do you have a bright, warm and projecting sound - it also looks and feels wonderful to play!
Hardware & Electronics
This year, Gibson have chosen rosewood as their bridge material, adding to the luxurious look and excellent sustain. Tusq is used for both the nut and the saddle for extra tonal consistency and resilience, and the familiar gold finished Grover tuners provide excellent tuning stability.
Finally, this guitar comes loaded with the award-wining LR Baggs 'Anthem' pickup system, lauded for its ability to re-produce the sound of a studio mic'd acoustic. You'll have stunning projection and accuracy, further adding to this guitar's incredible versatility.
