The Gibson Bob Dylan SJ-200 Player's Edition Guitar in vintage sunburst is a true performer's model that has been crafted with heartfelt dedication by Gibson, under close supervision from the musical legend himself. The Player's Edition is designed to be the perfect model to take to the stage and the studio with, and treated well, will be a faithful partner for life - just as Dylan's own model is to him.
The Gibson Bob Dylan SJ-200 guitar has been spec'd by Dylan personally, in order to deliver an exceptional playing experience - as well as heavenly tones. Only tonewoods that meet the artist's strict requirements have been employed, with a high quality Adironrack Sitka spruce top, which delights in projecting a robust and confident output. The back and sides are shaped from flamed maple, which offers up a rich timbre that is infused with warmth. The classic 'Super Jumbo' body profile gives the model an incredible power that delivers a formidable dynamic range. The top benefits from scalloped-x bracing, which has been hand-scalloped to enhance its strength and resonant quality, giving this model a peerless character.
The finishing touches to the Gibson SJ-200 are as elaborate as Dylan's personal model - with elegant multi-ply binding, a traditional double-ring rosette - all of which set off the incredible vintage sunburst finish in style.

A subtle coating of hand-sprayed nitrocellulose lacquer protects the finish from unwanted rubbing and premature wear, whilst custom engraved double pickguards encircle the soundhole. The lavish adornments serve to make the model even more precious.
Divine Neck and Fingerboard Partnership
Fitted to the body of the Gibson SJ-200 via a compound dovetail joint, is an exquisite maple neck with rosewood stringer. Designed to create the sturdiest feel possible, the neck is a joy to navigate and running your hand along its shapely, rounded profile is as close to perfection as you can get. Married to the neck is a sumptuous rosewood fingerboard, which has been bound with single-ply cream binding to create a smooth playing-feel whilst making transitions between each one of the 20-frets. The 12" fingerboard radius accommodates smooth string bends, whilst the unique Mother-of-Pearl "Bella Voce" position inlays provide an extravagant visual aid.
The traditional SJ-200 headstock has been set to the customary 17-degree angle in order to uphold string tension with the utmost accuracy for a consistent playing feel. The headstock is lavishly decorated with a Mother-of-Pearl "Gibson" logo, which sits just above the "Dylan Eye" decal. Gold Gotoh tuning machines hold strings steadfast, preventing loss of tuning integrity during performances thanks to their fantastic 15:1 gear ratio.
Between the headstock and neck rests the bone nut, which carries out the task of maintaining string tension - alongside the already stated 17-degree angled design - dutifully. The traditional rosewood "Moustache" bridge with 4 Mother-of-Pearl bars and bone saddle adds to the sophisticated aesthetic, whilst creating a seamless connection between the strings and body, ensuring optimum intonation.
Superb Electronic Setup
The L.R. Baggs' Anthem preamp has been fitted in order to take you from the studio to the stage with minimal fuss. The Super Jumbo's projection is easily adequate for small gigs, but when you're looking to take it to the next level, Gibson and Dylan already has you covered. Simply plug-in via the strap button input and you're good to go.
Custom Shop Hardshell Case

Accompanying the Player's Edition is a Custom Shop hardshell case, which has a black tolex exterior that holds up well against the usual touring injuries.
