The modern cousin of the "King of the Flat-Tops."
As distinct in size and shape as it is tonally unique, the SJ-100 is true to its origins in both brilliant tone and reasonable price. An American original with simple appointments, this great Gibson flat-top is an attractive, high-quality guitar that embodies the power and prowess of the Super Jumbo line. The SJ-100 is the fitting cousin of the legendary SJ-200—the “King of the Flat-Tops”—based on the same distinctive shape and proportions, but with more modest, historic appointments that appeal to many players.
Handcrafted from solid tone woods, the spruce top and mahogany back and sides produce superb tone, deep bass and projection, with the sophisticated look of hand-sprayed nitrocellulose lacquer. The unique, vintage Super Jumbo bridge is inspired by the originals from 1941 and found on only a few models from that time. The simple terraced pick guard in fire stripe nitrocellulose is a replica of the first SJ-100s from 1939. Equipped with a Baggs Element pickup, the SJ-100 is ready to respond to whatever performance circumstances demand.
