The “King of the Flat Tops” features top-quality tonewoods
Gibson’s J-200 Standard is part of Gibson’s storied line of Super Jumbo acoustic guitars. You’ll find a AAA-grade Sitka spruce top onboard, for a strong voice, with AAA-grade curly maple back and sides for balanced tone.
Rosewood fingerboard with rolled edges and graduated crown inlays
The Gibson J-200 Standard’s fingerboard comprises high-grade rosewood, which is personally inspected and qualified by Gibson’s team of skilled experts before it enters the Gibson factories. This durable wood’s resilience makes the fingerboard extremely balanced and stable; it gives each chord and note exceptional clarity and bite. What’s more, the J-200 Standard’s graduated crown inlays are made of genuine mother-of-pearl and inserted into the fingerboard using a special process that eliminates gaps and doesn’t require fillers. The fingerboard also sports a rolled edge, instead of the usual right angle, and is slightly beveled for an extremely smooth and comfortable feel, enhancing the J-200 Standard’s playability.
LR Baggs Element active acoustic pickup system provides excellent onstage performance
The Gibson J-200 Standard comes with LR Baggs’s popular Element active acoustic pickup system, which features a low-profile undersaddle transducer that’s proven more stable and durable than many standard ribbon-type pickups. This pickup system’s sleek and effective design removes unnecessary internal components to enhance the coupling between the pickup and the guitar. It also improves the sensitivity of the transducer for a robust, lively, and natural acoustic sound with excellent dynamics and delicate high end. Combined with an onboard preamplifier with an unobtrusive and removable volume control, mounted just inside the soundhole, the LR Baggs Element system makes this J-200 an excellent onstage performer.
The Gibson Super Jumbo
Gibson’s Super Jumbo guitars were originally built to cut through the loudest acoustic ensembles, allowing them to compete with the mandolins and banjos that were prevalent in “pre-amplified” times. It’s still a thrill to hear the well-balanced sound of a Super Jumbo ringing out loud and clear. The maple sides and spruce top pump out a throaty tone that’s equally great for high-octane strumming and delicate fingerpicking. Everyone from arena rockers to country artists to blues greats choose these guitars for their incredible sound, projection, build quality, and, let’s face it, stunning looks.
Classic Gibson craftsmanship
Gibson’s reputation as a fine guitar builder dates back to the late 1800s. Handcrafted since day one by some of the most skilled luthiers around, Gibson acoustic guitars have inspired countless players around the world. When you pick up a Gibson acoustic, you know you’re getting the finest tonewoods, quality hardware, and incredible attention to detail. These instruments are built to sound great and stand the test of time. After moving from Kalamazoo, Michigan, to Nashville, Tennessee (where Gibson electric guitars continue to be made), Gibson finally settled their acoustic operation in Bozeman, Montana, where they continue making some of the finest guitars on the planet by hand.
