OVERVIEW

A incredbly realistic recreation of the classic Gibson acoustic created for Country Music Hall of Famer Ray Whitley.

During the mid-1930s, Ray Whitley”one of the original singing cowboys”approached Gibson to build a custom acoustic. The result was the first J-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' Custom Western Classic J-200 is a painstaking recreation of that celebrated guitar.

Period-Correct Gibson Script Logo
The Gibson name has graced many of the most innovative and revolutionary acoustic guitars of our time”the Super Jumbos, the J-45, the Hummingbird, the Dove. There is no mistaking the classic, period-correct mother-of-pearl script logo, pressed onto the face of the headstock. It represents more than a century of originality and excellence.

Gold Waverly Tuners
Waverly tuners are considered some of the finest in the industry, and that' why their style and performance are exactly suited for the Custom Western Classic J-200. With a gear ratio of 16:1, these handmade Waverly tuning machines are fitted with solid brass tuner knobs, and feature vintage-style tapered string posts, combining stainless steel with bronze to deliver smooth, non-slip tuning.

Historic Flower Pot Peghead Inlay
Early versions of the Gibson' historic flower pot peghead inlay appeared on some of the earliest Gibson mandolins of the 1910s, and eventually developed into the design used today. This classic inlay has graced the headstocks of many classic Gibson guitars, including the legendary L-5, the Byrdland, and today' Custom Western Classic J-200.

Pickguard
The exclusive, period-correct black pickguard on the Custom Western Classic J-200 is modeled after the one designed for the very first J-200, which was built for Whitley. As with all of Gibson Acoustic' pickguards, the coloring, inlay, and binding are all done by hand.

Rosette
A rosette is the beautiful, hand-crafted circle around the soundhole, and can be one of the most ornamental elements of any acoustic guitar. It is also one of the most subtle and complicated woodworking decorations on any acoustic guitar. The rosette on the Custom Western Classic J-200 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 to this classic J-200.
