Model Overview:
The Gibson flat-tops have been arguably the most revered acoustic guitars in early folk, country and Americana. The SJ-200, renowned for it’s remarkable projection and clarity, has many of the same design features dating as far back as 1930. Handmade in Gibson’s Montana factory, the SJ-200 features a solid Sitka spruce top with traditional X bracing and solid maple back and sides, comfortably rounded maple neck with rosewood fingerboard and classic mother of pearl crown inlays, and a Fishman Ellipse Aura pickup with the preamp discretely fitted inside the soundhole so as not to lose the natural full-body resonance. Other premium features include multiply binding, traditional rosewood mustache bridge, hand sprayed nitrocellulose lacquer, Grover tuners, and includes Gibson Custom hardshell case.
