The Gibson J200 Standard Electro Acoustic Guitar in Antique Natural, is an iconic model that guitarists have dreamed of owning since its introduction back in 1937 - earning the rightful title of “King of the Flat-tops”. The supreme Gibson Super Jumbo body profile gives this exceptional guitar a powerful dynamic range, making it the weapon of choice for many influential songwriters and musicians including: Ray Whitley, Emmylou Harris, Roy Rogers, Gene Autry, Gram Parsons, and Pete Townshend.
The fingerboard of Gibson’s J-200 Standard is constructed using exceptional hand-inspected rosewood, a wood whose resilience and durability is the stuff of legend, which is crucial in guaranteeing a balanced and stable playing feel. The J-200’s graduated crown inlays are made from mother of pearl, and are inserted into the fingerboard as a stylish navigational aid. The fingerboard sports a rolled edge, to create a smooth transition for the hand to enhance the playability of the neck and fingerboard.
The Super Jumbo body profile is crafted from AAA-grade Eastern curly maple, which allows the body to generate a crisp and articulate timbre. The AAA-grade Sitka spruce top resonates freely offering a bountiful projection, whilst the gorgeous antique natural finish is both understated and sophisticated. giving the guitar a dynamic range befitting a Gibson Super Jumbo.
Each model features Gibson’s hand-scalloped, radiused top bracing inside the body, a feature normally found only in limited run, hand-made guitars. By scalloping each brace by hand, the natural sound of the acoustic is focused more toward the centre of the body, enhancing the instrument’s sound projection. The lightweight bracing pattern inside the J-200 Standard — the same pattern used in Gibson’s first Super Jumbo in 1937 — is constructed to support and strengthen a very large surface, thus allowing the top more freedom of movement to vibrate and project sound. The placement of the braces inside the J-200 also creates powerful, deep lows with full frequency range, and producing the incredibly balanced, huge sound Gibson’s Super Jumbos are so noted for.
