The Gibson SJ-200 Original acoustic-electric guitar is an American icon that shaped music history. First released in 1937, the widely played SJ-200 is known as the "King of the Flat-Tops" for its full, balanced tone and superior playability. Now recreated in stunning detail, the new SJ-200 Original pumps out the coveted sound and style that made the original famous. Guitarists of all levels will appreciate the comfortable round neck, low action, and plugged-in tones from the LR Baggs VTC electronics.

Handcrafted Sitka Spruce Top Resonates with Nuance

At the heart of the SJ-200 Original's full, articulate tone is a handcrafted solid Sitka spruce top. Sitka spruce is prized for its musicality, responsiveness and ability to reproduce subtle tonal nuances. When paired with the resonant flamed maple back and sides, the spruce top helps the SJ-200 Original sing with a clear, balanced tone across the tonal spectrum.

Flamed Maple Back and Sides Provide Power and Punch

The flamed maple back and sides are key to the Gibson SJ-200 Original's powerful tone and projection. Flamed maple is a dense hardwood that boosts volume and enhances midrange frequencies. The result is an acoustic that cuts through mixes with ease in a live setting while capturing intricate details in the studio.

Plug in and Reproduce Your Acoustic Tone

The Gibson SJ-200 Original comes equipped with LR Baggs VTC electronics for a natural plugged-in sound. The VTC pickup system accurately captures the SJ-200 Original's resonant acoustic properties and detailed tone. Guitarists can adjust the mix of the soundhole pickup and bridge plate transducer to suit their needs in any live or recording situation.

Timeless Details Define Luxury

From the abalone and mother-of-pearl inlays to the engraved tortoise pickguard, every detail of the Gibson SJ-200 Original screams luxury. The crown fretboard and headstock inlays, carved bridge, and Chesterfield tuners are all crafted to the highest standards. An instrument with this level of craftsmanship and attention to detail inspires musicians to push their playing to new creative heights.
