The Gibson Acoustic 2018 SJ-200 Electro Acoustic Guitar in Antique Natural is a beautiful rendition of the model aptly named "King of the Flat Tops". Since its introduction back in the late 1930s, the SJ-200 has been the guitar of choice for many a musical legend, across many a genre. From classic country trendsetters to modern rock heroes, Johnny Cash to Alex Turner, the SJ-200 has seen and done it all. Each model is supplied with a Gibson hardshell case and accessory kit to keep your pride and joy in pristine condition.
Solid Super Jumbo
The Gibson Acoustic 2018 SJ-200 is shaped to the powerful Super Jumbo body shape, which boasts large dimensions that bestows upon it a wide dynamic range. Though it may yield a mighty output, the SJ-200 affords stunning clarity across each and every note. Whether you're strumming softly, fingerpicking intricate patterns or belting out the hits, the Super Jumbo is as versatile as you need it to be.
The SJ-200 body back and sides are built using maple, which is a bright sounding tonewood that produces a stunning mid to high end sparkle. Paired with the maple is a sweet-sounding Sitka spruce top, which is reinforced using traditional hand-scalloped X-bracing to preserve the instrument's longevity. The use of solid tonewoods means that the more the SJ-200 is played, the more unique the timbre it develops.
To accentuate the beautiful antique natural finish, Gibson have thoughtfully applied finishing touches that make this model a true beauty. Multi-ply binding to the top and bottom complements the tonewood finish exquisitely, the multi-ply double-ring rosette encircles the soundhole, and a subtle coating of nitrocellulose lacquer protects the finish. Completing the look is the ornate SJ-200 pickguard.
Supportive maple neck
Joined to the body via compound dovetail neck-to-body joint for improved rigidity, is a strong yet supple maple neck. Shaped to a round profile, the neck affords a manageable feel in the hand, whilst the finish enables you to glide along. Married to the neck is a luxurious rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 20 frets that are adorned with mother-of-pearl graduated crown position inlays. The combination of 25.5-inch scale length and 12-inch fingerboard radius creates a comfortable playing surface for performing elaborate technique on with the greatest of ease.
The Gibson SJ-200 headstock is home to a set of gold Grover Rotomatic tuning machines, which uphold tuning integrity with precision. Between the headstock and neck rests the Tusq 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 performance.
LR Baggs Anthem
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.
