The Gibson Acoustic SJ-200 Limited Edition Electro Acoustic Guitar in Ebony is a delightful instrument that has been given the rock 'n' roll treatment. The cool ebony finish adds a touch of grandeur to what is already one of the most popular acoustics of all time, and a favourite of many legends including: Jimmy Page, Pete Townshend, Bob Dylan, and George Harrison to name but a few.
Solid Super Jumbo
The Gibson SJ-200 stays true to its roots, utilising a robust Super Jumbo body profile that generates a huge amount of energy - perfect for belting out songs to adoring fans. The body is crafted using maple, which produces a crisp and bright-sounding timbre. Paired with the maple is a grade AAA Sitka spruce top, which is reinforced using scalloped bracing to optimise projection and resonance.
The finishing touches to the Gibson SJ-200 are simple and unfussy but add an air of elegance, with multi-ply top and back binding, and multi-ply double-ring rosette, and a subtle coating of nitrocellulose lacquer protects the finish. The visual aesthetic of the top is completed by an ornately decorated traditional cast SJ-200 pickguard.
Sturdy maple neck
Fitted to the body of the Gibson SJ-200 is a two-piece maple neck, which has been shaped to a round profile to guarantee comfortability and stability. Married to the neck is a sumptuous rosewood fingerboard, which has been bound to create a smooth playing-feel whilst making transitions between each one of the 20-frets. The 12-inch fingerboard radius accommodates smooth string bends, whilst the mother-of-pearl graduated crowns provide a stylish navigational aid.
The Gibson SJ-200 headstock is home to a set of gold Grover Imperial tuning machines with steadfast 16:1 gear ratio, which uphold tuning integrity precisely. Between the headstock and neck rests the bone nut, which carries out the task of maintaining string tension dutifully. The delightfully designed SJ-200 moustache bridge creates a seamless connection between the strings and body, ensuring optimum intonation throughout each and every performance.
The SJ-200 is equipped with an upgraded, award-winning L.R. Baggs Anthem pickup system. The Anthem pickup delivers warm, balanced tones that transparently translates the natural acoustic timbre of the guitar exquisitely, whilst doing a fantastic job of suppressing any potential unwanted feedback. Thanks to the unique TRU.MIC hardware, which is mounted beneath the bridge plate, the Anthem produces a sparkling output that is infused with absolute clarity.
