Pre Loved From its inaugural appearance in 1937, Gibson’s J-200 set a standard others have been trying to match ever since. Today—nearly 71 years later—the legacy of Gibson’s “King of the Flat-tops” lives on in the Gibson J-200 Standard acoustic-electric guitar. Upon its introduction in the late 1930s, the J-200 (also referred to as 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 most popular, as evidenced by the list of players that have made it their primary acoustic instrument, among them Ray Whitley, Emmylou Harris, Roy Rogers, Gene Autry, Gram Parsons and Pete Townshend.
The new 2016 version features an upgraded electronics, the LR Baggs Anthem for ultimate plug and play ease, improved feel thanks to fingerboard edges softened to comfortably fit the contour of the player's hand, premium setup thanks to the PLEK technology and an engraved truss rod cover with 2016 logo.
