The Gibson Acoustic 2018 SJ-200 Standard Electro Acoustic Guitar in Vintage Sunburst assumes the mantle of "King of the Flat Tops" with ease, showcasing the awesome power of its Super Jumbo body alongside sublime appointments to cement its regal aesthetic. Once you pick up and play one of these beauties, you'll immediately appreciate and understand why so many guitarists have turned to the SJ-200 as their preferred instrument of choice. From rock to country, no genre remains untouched by this majestic acoustic's influence.
Solid Super Jumbo
The Gibson Acoustic 2018 SJ-200 is bestowed with the classic Super Jumbo body profile, which gives it large dimensions that results in a huge output that offers a wide dynamic range. The delivery may be substantial, but thanks to the elegantly executed constructed and carefully selected tonewoods, the SJ-200 sings with a delightfully nuanced timbre. Whether you're playing as part of an ensemble or going solo, the Super Jumbo shape gives you the versatility to play within or above a mix with ease.
The body back and sides are built using maple, which establishes a bright and punchy tonal foundation. Paired with the maple is a Sitka spruce top, which is reinforced using traditional hand-scalloped X-bracing to optimise projection and resonance whilst preventing unwanted buckling and warping over time.
As well as the awesome Vintage Sunburst finish, additional touches have been applied to make this beauty stand head and shoulders above the rest. 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. The icing on the cake comes in the form of an ornately decorated traditional cast SJ-200 pickguard.
Sturdy yet supple maple neck
Using a compound dovetail neck-to-body joint for strength, the 2018 SJ-200 Standard has been given a strong and reliable maple neck. Shaped to a round profile to guarantee comfort and stability, the neck ensures a substantial yet manageable feel in the hand. Married to the neck is a luxurious rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 20 frets that are adorned with hand mother-of-pearl crown inlays. Whether you're fretting chords, strumming your heart out, or playing intricate fingerstyle, the neck and fingerboard accommodate all styles equally.
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 Standard 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 2018 SJ-200 Standard Electro Acoustic Guitar is a work of art. To ensure yours stays in pristine condition for many years to come, each model is supplied with a hardshell case, as well as a Gibson accessory kit.
