A mainstay instrument for many of music history’s beloved players since 1937, the celebrated tones of the Gibson Acoustic SJ-200 Western Classic Acoustic Guitar are guaranteed to stimulate any live performance or studio session. An unabashed tribute to the heyday of country-western music, this highly decorated “King of the Flat-tops” features a loud, clear voice for strumming and delicate fingerpicking, thanks to its AAA solid Sitka spruce top and rosewood back and sides. Its rock-solid maple neck capped with smooth-as-glass ebony translates vibrations beautifully to the body, with enough durability to last for generations of consistent use.
Exquisitely crafted tonewoods deliver a full-bodied voice
Gibson’s SJ-200 Western Classic is part of the manufacturer’s storied line of Super Jumbo acoustic guitars, all of which feature an uncompromising commitment to the highest-quality tonewoods available. At its core sits an AAA-grade Sitka spruce top to deliver the SJ-200 Western Classic’s robust voice, with exquisite rosewood for the back and sides adding richness and high-end sparkle. High-grade ebony — personally inspected and approved by Gibson’s world-class luthiers — comprises the SJ-200 Western Classic’s fingerboard, silky-smooth to the touch and supremely comfortable in all playing positions while imbuing exceptional clarity and character into your playing.
Abundant stunning ornamentations
One look is all it takes to understand the special care and consideration Gibson gave the SJ-200 Western Classic. Its 2-piece maple neck boasts beautiful Graduated Crown inlays, which were made of genuine mother-of-pearl and inserted into the fingerboard using a unique process that eliminates gaps without fillers. For added visual flair, this stunning work of playable art boasts an iconic Moustache bridge as well as a mother-of-pearl script logo and torch on the headstock. With such stunning appointments and bold aesthetics, the SJ-200 Western Classic is clearly worthy of a “King.”
