The Gibson Acoustic SJ-200 Limited Run Electro Acoustic Guitar in Wine Red delivers the "King of the Flat-tops" in a very rare Wine Red finish. Since its introduction, the SJ-200 has been the weapon of choice for some of music's most iconic players, including: Jimmy Page, Pete Townshend, Bob Dylan, and George Harrison. The combination of power and tonal richness is what make this exceptional guitar so beloved, and to top it all, the Wine Red makes it one of the most majestic in its lineage.
Solid Super Jumbo
The Gibson SJ-200 adheres to the Super Jumbo body profile, which is large without being bulky or cumbersome. The beauty of this shape is that it is fantastic for those who desire power across a wide dynamic range, whilst retaining richness of tone. Whether you're a solo performer, or playing with an ensemble, the SJ-200 allows you to sit sweetly within or just above the mix - as you wish.
The body back and sides are built using flame maple, which establishes a nuanced character with brilliant clarity. Paired with the maple is a grade AAA Sitka spruce radiused top, which is reinforced using scalloped bracing to optimise projection and resonance. The bracing also supports the top to prevent unwanted buckling and warping over time.
As well as the breath-taking Wine Red finish, additional touches have been applied to make this beauty stand out from others. Multi-ply binding to the top and bottom enhances the tonewood finish, the multi-ply double-ring rosette encircles the soundhole, 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 bound rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 20 frets that are adorned with hand inlaid mother-of-pearl inlays. The 12-inch fingerboard radius accommodates smooth string bends, giving you a smooth and uniform feel along the entire fingerboard.
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.
The Gibson Acoustic SJ-200 Limited Run Electro Acoustic Guitar in Wine Red is truly sublime. To ensure yours stays in pristine condition for many years to come, each model is supplied with a black hardshell case, as well as a Gibson owner's manual.
