Description

Details

The Gibson 2016 Super 200 Custom Cutaway Electro Acoustic Guitar in Antique Natural is a rare and exclusive model, destined to become a highly sought after prize by Gibson enthusiasts and collectors. Paying tribute to the iconic Super 400, this beauty benefits from classic style and modern appointments to make it a truly heavenly instrument. Every model is supplied with a black hardshell case, as well as a Gibson Acoustic owner's manual, and certificate of authenticity.

Luxurious tonewoods

The 2016 Super 200 Custom Cutaway has been treated with the utmost respect. Crafted from exceptional tonewoods and hand-finished to an exceptional standard of quality, the Super 200 is a work of art. The back and sides are shaped from flamed maple to the substantial Super Jumbo body shape, offering a combination of warmth and power that to the body dimensions, infused with an articulate character thanks to the maple. Around the back you'll find exquisite 4-ply binding, creating a seamless partnership between back and side woods.

The top is carved from AAA grade Sitka spruce, which acts as a highly resonant soundboard to deliver the timbre of the guitar with confidence and efficiency. Multi-ply abalone binding encases the top, creating a striking visual partnership with the natural grain of the spruce. The radiused top is reinforced with scalloped bracing to optimise projection and resonance, as well as improving strength to prevent premature buckling or warping of the soundboard. The antique natural finish of the body is protected by smooth hi gloss 90 sheen lacquer, which allows the woods to resonate unimpeded whilst provided a resilient coating.

Supple yet solid neck

Gibson have employed a compound dovetail joint - which is supported by Franklin Titebond 50 hot hide glue - to join the maple neck to the body, due to its superb distribution of resonance throughout the guitar. The neck has been shaped to a substantial rounded profile, giving it a reassuringly sturdy feel in the hand. Paired with the neck is a single-piece rosewood fingerboard, which bears 20 frets that are decorated with mother of pearl split-block inlays. The 2016 range of models have been treated to a hand-rubbed fingerboard finish to maximise the natural vibrancy of the wood to improve resilience and longevity.

The playability of this maple and rosewood combination is what dreams are made of. Single-ply cream binding means that transitions between frets couldn't feel smoother, whilst softened edges allow the neck to sit sweetly in the hand. Thanks to the 12-inch fingerboard radius, string bends can be executed with a butter-like smoothness.

L.R. Baggs Anthem System

The Gibson 2016 Super 200 Custom Cutaway is equipped with L.R. Baggs' Anthem Series electronics. Featuring patent-pending TRU-MIC technology, which captures the studio-mic'd sound for live performance. Mounted to the underside of the bridge is the TRU-MIC, which translates the timbre of the guitar transparently; combine that with noise-cancelling technology, and you have an award-winning combination.

The TRU-MIC is combined with an Element pickup, with a mix control built-in that allows you to create the perfect blend to achieve your desired output. Phase inversion is also incorporated to minimise feedback. The mic level and master volume controls give you further control over your output, allowing you to precisely attenuate your tone. Quite simply, you couldn't ask for a more carefully considered system to best deliver the tone of your dreams.

Hardware

At the top of the neck is an AJ headstock with 17-degree taper to assist in maintaining string tension, intonation and sustain. Fitted to the headstock are Gold Grover Imperial tuning machines with 16:1 gear ratio, which offer smooth adjustment whilst upholding tuning integrity dutifully - alongside being a stunning complement to the natural finish.

Great acoustic sound
Posted on 23/02/2016 by Sillyous Sodus My Dad owns one of these and the sound is just amazing! The neck has a good feel and and playability never ends.
Amazing
Posted on 28/12/2015 by Peter Sadly I'll never be good enough to do this guitar justice but even strumming an open chord sounds fantastic. The warmth to the sound, the sheer volume produced and the action are better than the Taylors, Ovations and Martins I tried. The finish is flawless and this is the first Gibson Jumbo I've seen with a cutaway.
There are three little niggles -
No strap button at the neck end
No built - in tuner
The battery for the pickup is in a velcro pouch inside the body and accessed through the sound hole, so not something you can change quickly in the middle of a gig.
Overall the best guitar I've ever seen let alone owned and a work of art as well.
