Gibson

Description

You've put in the hours. You've spent the time perfecting your style. Now reward yourself for all that sacrifice and invest in a guitar sure to impress those who hear you play and inspire you to keep at it. The SJ-200 Standard acoustic-electric is the kind of guitar that says, "I'm serious about my craft." Visually, it features the legendary Super Jumbo body design with a classic SJ-200 moustache bridge, multi-ply top and multi-ply back binding, single-ply neck binding, mother-of-pearl graduated crown inlays, Grover Rotomatics with gold-plated kidney buttons, a traditionally adorned pickguard. This SJ-200 Standard is a marriage of maple and Sitka spruce with a timeless Vintage Sunburst finish and features a soundhole-mounted L.R. Baggs Anthem pickup with volume, mix and phase control.

From its inaugural appearance in 1937, Gibson’s J-200 set a standard others have been trying to match ever since. Today, the legacy of Gibson’s “King of the Flat-tops” lives on in the SJ-200 Standard. Upon its introduction in the late 1930s, the SJ-200 immediately filled a need for a deeper, more balanced and powerful sound. It gave purveyors of the new American music scene of the 1930s a reliable, well-built instrument, capable of projecting the sound of the guitar well beyond that of any other acoustic on the market—a fact that still holds true today. It is simply the world’s most famous acoustic guitar, and certainly one of the most popular.

This J-200 Standard includes a hardshell case.
