Gibson Custom Shop Pre-War SJ-200 Rosewood Acoustic Guitar


The Gibson Acoustic Custom Shop has recreated the King of the Flat-Tops! One of Gibson’s most storied models, this Historic Reissue instrument is hand built in Gibson's celebrated Bozeman facility using the finest materials and styled after its late 1930s counterparts. Each is constructed with a select Thermally Aged Adirondack red spruce top with hot hide glue bracing, rosewood back and sides, and premium ebony for the fingerboard and bridge. No detail is left untouched the bound fingerboard, vintage style script Gibson inlay, and unique pick guard add custom touches all over this authentic recreation.

It's no exaggeration to say that this incredible guitar is one of the finest Jumbo's we've ever had in-store; it sounds and feels like a vintage SJ-200, with vibe and tone in spades. The ultra-thin finish, premium timbers and subtle aging give the guitar a classy and authentic feel, and the sound is classic SJ-200 - imperious, rich and loud.

Includes Gibson Custom Shop hardshell case with certificate of authenticity.
