OVERVIEW

Bold, American-made tone in a classic Gibson acoustic guitar.

From singing cowboy stars of the 1930s to rock and country superstars of today, the most influential artists have chosen Gibson's SJ-200 acoustic guitar, the King of the Flat-Tops, to make a bold statement of musical excellence. Today's SJ-200 jumbo guitar is modeled on the classic early-'50s, maple-bodied model.

Each limited edition Gibson True Vintage SJ-200 acoustic guitar is built in Bozeman, Montana with a top made from solid red spruce, a rare and highly prized tone wood, and constructed with hot hide glue, just like back in the day. The guitar comes with a Gibson hardshell case

Gibson has only released 167 of these guitars.

I finally got one...

By JimmyJ

Ask me a question

I have wanted an SJ-200 all my life, but have never been able to afford one. I have played a used Hummingbird for the last 40 years, and recently retired from my job. I bought this guitar as a gift to myself, to fulfill a lifetime wish. I must say that it doesn't have the volume or tone that I had hoped for. The neck shape and nut width is perfect for my hand, and the workmanship is superb. The biggest issue I have with this guitar is the finish. As beautiful as it is, it will scratch if you so much as look at it sideways! I am very careful with my guitars (my wife calls it obsessive), but the vintage finish is impractical. Forget wearing any kind of strap, no matter how expensive, with this guitar, because it will leave fine scratches in the laquer. Gibson sells a vintage guitar restoration kit that contains a guitar polish that actually works miracles with this finish. I wouldn't recommend anything else. I will probably never part with this guitar, but my old Hummingbird is sounding better and better...it's amazing how desire can build things up in your mind.
This is a beautiful guitar, but the vintage finish will develop fine scratches even with careful handling.
Flawless build quality.
The jury is still out on this category. This is a limited production guitar, but it is also very expensive. I imagine I will have to hold on to it for years before I could ever break even on a sale. This is true with all new guitars, but especially when the guitar costs almost five grand.
