Gibson Acoustic Guitars - SJ-200 1998 Custom Shop Vintage


SOLD. Call us for options.

This used Custom Shop Gibson SJ-200 from 1998 is a guitar of epic proportions - both in tone and volume. Introduced in 1937, Gibson's Super Jumbo-sized acoustic essentially took the dreadnought and made it even bigger and bolder. Here with a AAA-grade Sitka Spruce top and Eastern Curly Maple back and sides, it's loaded with fine appointments to accompany its stellar tone: tortoiseshell pickguard with Floral and Vine engraving; double-ring rosette; triple top binding and double back binding; mother-of-pearl crown fingerboard inlays; and mother-of-pearl mustache-style bridge inlay.

It has a three-piece Maple neck with a Rounded profile that's incredibly comfortable, as well as a Rosewood fingerboard with 20 frets that are extremely clean. The scale length is 25 1/2" while the nut width is 1.725". Here in Very Good condition, it does have quite a bit of finish checking and a few minor dings, but is otherwise an incredibly nice guitar - and it sounds phenomenal. A big, boisterous voice that can match other inherently louder instruments is the cornerstone of this guitar, ideal for bluegrass and country, but equally suited for rock and folk tunes. Includes a Martin Thinline Gold Plus Pickup System which was designed by Martin and Fishman to replicate the sound of a full bodied acoustic, without the feedback problems inherent to other systems. This Gibson SJ-200, straight out of the Gibson Custom Shop, is a fantastic acoustic with plenty of character and tonal variety. Includes original hardshell case.
