The Gibson SJ-200 is one of the most iconic acoustic guitars in the world. From its inaugural appearance in 1937, it has set a standard others have been trying to match ever since. The original jumbo dubbed ‘king of the flattops’, it has been used on stage by more famous musicians than there is time in the day to list. The big bottom end and clear notes comes from the Flamed Maple back and sides and Spruce top. Featuring the signature mustache bridge, oversized floral pickguard and Pearl ‘crown’ inlays, this is sure a showstopper.
Upon its introduction in the late 1930s, the SJ-200 immediately filled a need for a deeper, more balanced and powerful sound. It gave purveyors of the new American music scene of the 1930s a reliable, well-built instrument, capable of projecting the sound of the guitar well beyond that of any other acoustic on the market—a fact that still holds true today. It is simply the world’s most famous acoustic guitar, and certainly one of the most popular.
