From its inaugural appearance in 1937, Gibson's J-200 acoustic guitar set a standard others have been trying to match ever since. The J-200 immediately filled a need for a deeper, more balanced, and powerful sound and gave players of the 1930s a reliable, well-built guitar capable of projecting the sound beyond that of any other acoustic on the market”a fact that still holds true today with the SJ-200.
The top of the Gibson SJ-200 guitar is made from solid Sitka spruce, while the back and sides are constructed from beautiful figured maple, giving this guitar all the deep, rich tone, clarity and presence you could ask for. The lightweight bracing pattern inside the SJ-200 acoustic model is constructed to support and strengthen a very large surface, thus allowing the top more freedom of movement to vibrate. By scalloping each brace, the natural sound of the acoustic is focused more toward the center of the body, enhancing the instrument's sound projection. The placement of the braces inside the Gibson SJ-200 creates powerful, deep lows with full frequency range, producing the incredibly balanced, huge sound Gibson's Super Jumbos are so noted for.
The SJ-200 looks and plays as good as it sounds with a fingerboard constructed from the highest grade rosewood that is adorned with graduated crown inlays made of genuine mother-of-pearl. Grover's original Rotomatic tuners have a gear ratio of 14:1 and deliver precision tuning in a durable housing that provides maximum protection for the gear and string post. Binding on headstock, neck and body highlight the classic form of this fine instrument. The rosette on the Gibson SJ-200 acoustic guitar is a double-ring rosette, with the main ring consisting of seven-ply binding, and the second ring three-ply binding, adding a stylish, understated elegance. The tortoise pickguard for the SJ-200 acoustic is engraved with a traditional floral and vine design, surrounded by a cream-colored border with yellow and orange dots.
