Get your hands on an ultra-rare Gibson jumbo.
What do country music legends Gene Autry, Lefty Frizzell, and the Everly Brothers all have in common? Answer: each played a Gibson SJ-200, one of the most iconic acoustic guitars in Nashville's”and Hollywood's”storied history. Celebrating its 70th year, this Gibson SJ-200 guitar remains a standard by which many other flat-top acoustics are measured. Only 12 of these beauties were ever made to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Gibson J-200 acoustic guitar.
Built on the jumbo design, the body depth and width makes for a large resonating chamber, bringing out strong, pronounced Gibson tone, with plenty of punch and projection to stand out in any setting. The jumbo guitar's volume and unbelievable tone makes it an ideal instrument for fingerpicking or rhythmic strumming”the perfect compliment to any singer-songwriter.
This Gibson acoustic guitar starts with a top made of AAA Adirondack spruce, a scarce, costly wood known for its rich, mature, and well-balanced voice, considered a deluxe option by makers that use it. AAA Indian rosewood was used for the back and sides, giving lots of projection to the Gibson SJ-200 guitar. The maple neck and ebony fretboard provide massive sustain, in a deep, dark appearance. Dressed in a tri-burst finish, this beautiful homage also features mother-of-pearl crown inlays, luxurious custom design pickguard, moustache bridge, custom mother-of-pearl Gibson script logo, gold imperial tuners, and painstakingly recreated 1930s body binding. Rounding out the package is a Gibson SJ-200 70th Anniversary Platinum Edition" engraved headstock plaque, an engraved "70th Anniversary" trussrod cover, and "70th" design inlaid in platinum at the 19th fret, hand-cut by master luthier Ren Ferguson. The Gibson SJ-200 guitar is an instant classic.
Every acoustic guitar made by Gibson features hand-scalloped, radiused top bracing inside the body, a feature normally found only in limited run, handmade guitars. By scalloping each brace by hand, the natural sound of the acoustic is focused more toward the center of the body, enhancing the Gibson SJ-200 guitar's sound projection. This traditional pattern delivers a tight tone, with warm, woody midrange and evenly balanced tone across all six strings, making it more than capable to meet today's uncompromising standards among blues and roots guitar players.
