OVERVIEW

The King of the Flat-Tops returns with Thermally Aged finish for that real vintage feel and accurate tone.

Seen on more legendary stages with more legendary performers and heard on more albums in more genres than any other jumbo acoustic in history, the King of the Flat-tops, the SJ-200, has made it big since 1937. The 2017 SJ-200 Vintage features the Super Jumbo body style, long the “Artist’s Choice” for all styles of music, including blues, folk, rock and country. So much so, that this magnificent acoustic has become an icon for the world’s most legendary rock and pop performers. Known for creating a giant choral background for vocal accompaniment, the SJ-200 Vintage is capable of a rich, full sound with a deep bass and crystal-clear highs. Hand-built in the heart of the Rocky Mountains in Bozeman, Montana, Gibson's master luthiers continue the rich tradition of Gibson Acoustic.

The 2017 SJ-200 Vintage uses Gibson’s proprietary, Thermally Aged top wood, a process which accurately “ages” the wood to sound like a seasoned, vintage instrument. The SJ-200 Vintage is offered with this process applied on the hand-selected Adirondack red spruce top. Hand-scalloped, arched bracing secured with hot hide glue, focuses the sound to the center of the guitar top for superior tone.


Tonewood: The Adirondack red spruce top is Thermally Aged giving the look and sound of a seasoned SJ-200
Historic Build Techniques: Traditional hot hide glue is used to better transfer the resonace of the guitar producing a more vintage sound
Marquetry: The back seam of the flame maple is trimmed in a beautiful three rope marquetry strip for a vintage-inspiered look
Fingerboard: The rosewood fingerboard is bound in an antiqued binding, covering the ends of the frets for a traditional look and feel
Finish: Gibson's own VOS finish is hand rubbed into the nitrocellulose finish providing a vintage look straight out of the case
Nut and Saddle: A hand-shaped bone nut and saddle provide vintage inspired details to this SJ-200 Vintage
Tuners: Gold Gotoh Relic tuners offer the look of an aged tuner with the superior engineering of a new tuner machine
Pickguard: The traditional SJ-200 tortoise pickguard is engraved and hand painted and detailed with dots
Color: World-famous Vintage Sunburst is hand-sprayed for a truly one-of-a-kind look
Inlay: Iconic mother-of-pearl graduated crowns and hand inlaid into the rosewood fingerboard

Comments about Gibson 2017 SJ-200 Vintage Super Jumbo Acoustic Guitar:

I was not knowledgeable about Gibson products, and was not aware that, on the vintage models, they skipped the final buffing stage in order to give it that "used, traveled, passed-around" look. I am satisfied with that, and am enjoying my new axe. After a minor set-up, it plays like a dream.

    Comments about Gibson 2017 SJ-200 Vintage Super Jumbo Acoustic Guitar:

    This guitar is comfortable and fun to play. It came well packaged and protected. My only beef is that someone polished it and did a terrible job of it. Swirl marks are very noticeable. Nothing that can't be remedied, but for the price I paid, this is looks like an open-box item, although the advertisement made no mention of that. I've seen open box items with better finishes than this one. I'll buff it out myself, but I'm disappointed that I have to do that. I would recommend this to a friend, but with a word of caution.
