The Gibson J-200 Standard Electro Acoustic Guitar in Antique Natural, is an iconic model that guitarists have dreamed of owning since its introduction back in 1937 – earning it 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.
Gibson’s Superb Super Jumbo Body
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, giving the guitar an acoustic power befitting a Gibson Super Jumbo. Gibson’s hand-scalloped, radiused top bracing underpins the top to give it exceptional strength whilst it resonates, turning it into the perfect soundboard. The full frequency ranges capabilities of the combined tonewoods and body profile are given the legs to gallop, and it quickly becomes clear as to why the J-200 is so beloved.
Exquisite Rosewood Fingerboard
A sumptuous maple neck is fitted to the body via a compound dovetail joint at the 14th fret, which is reinforced using hide glue. Shaped to a comfortable rounded profile, the neck benefits from a single-ply cream binding that makes transitions between frets much smoother. Married to the neck is a delightful 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.
Fishman Ellipse Aura Electronics Package
The Gibson J-200 Standard is equipped with a built-in Fishman Ellipse Aura electronics package, which combines Fishman’s most sophisticated onboard preamp design with the power of the popular Aura Acoustic Imaging Technology. The result is acoustic sound that is exceptionally accurate and true to life.
Already loaded onto the system are four images that best match the instrument’s natural tonal characteristics. You can make adjustments to any of these parameters by using the system’s Pickup/Image Blend or Volume controls, or use the switchable Natural I and Natural II low frequencies for tone shaping. You can also control feedback with the Phase switch and automatic Anti-Feedback device control. The pickup's ergonomic soundhole-mounted design puts slider controls at your fingertips, allowing you to maintain a natural playing position at all times.
