OVERVIEW

A classic updated with a more playable design and finish, and the added versatility of an L.R. Baggs' pickup.

During the mid-1930s, Ray Whitley - one of the original singing cowboys - approached Gibson to build a custom acoustic. The result was the first SJ-200 in 1937, which Whitley used exclusively for many years, and is now displayed at the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville, Tennessee. Gibson's Custom Western Classic SJ-200 is a painstaking recreation of that celebrated guitar. Its Super Jumbo body has hand-select maple back and sides, and features a period-correct 4" body depth at the neckjoint, Classic 1960s Replica Sunburst finish, and replica back center seam marquetry.

Other appointments that give it that authentic look and feel include a 1960s Solid Moustache bridge with mother-of-pearl inlays, hand-painted 1960s casted pickguard, custom 1960s style neck shape, and historic gold-plated tune-o-matic bridge with nylon inserts. This 2016 model also includes the following upgrades and enhancements.

Upgraded Pickup: L.R. Baggs Anthem pickup for excellent acoustic sound reproduction
Truss Rod Cover: New 2016 engraved truss rod cover
Improved Feel: Fingerboard edge is softened to comfortably fit the contour of the player's hand
Enhanced Finish: Finer grit sandpaper and polishing compounds for high gloss finish
Premium Setup: Utilizing state-of-the-art German engineered Plek technology to create the finest playing surface possible. Hand finished for the world's finest feel and playability
Smoother hand rubbed and oiled fingerboard and bridges: New penetrating and finishing oil lasts longer and maximizes wood' natural vibrancy
