From Our Research Team:
The Triumphant Return of an Historic Gibson FlattopGibson Acoustic's SJ-100 acoustic-electric guitar is a stunning recreation of one of the company's rarest flattops. Introduced in 1939 as a more affordable and less ornamented stablemate to the SJ-200 "King of the Flattops," the SJ-100's tasteful, simple appointments and solid spruce/mahogany construction delivered a massive dose of premium tone and playability. And it still does. To bring that rich tone to the stage or the studio, this superb American-made instrument is fitted with a Baggs Element pickup system. Own a piece of music history - the Gibson Acoustic SJ-100.
Gibson Acoustic SJ-100 Acoustic-electric Guitar at a Glance:
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 ring out loud and clear, the maple sides and spruce top pumping 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.
Rosewood bodied acoustics are where it's at for recording
When it comes to recording flat-picked acoustic guitars, professional recording engineers prefer instruments with a mahogany back and sides, rather than rosewood. If that surprises you, understand that it has to do with the preponderance of low end inherent in rosewood-bodied guitars (that must dealt with) - versus the perfection with which a properly-recorded mahogany-bodied acoustic sits within a track. The Gibson Acoustic SJ-100 is a cannon - very loud, but superbly balanced. It's a great choice for tracking in a thick mix - yet it sounds rich and full-bodied on its own. Just aim a small-diaphragm condenser mic at the 12th fret and you're good-to-go. Record the Baggs Element pickup output to another track and you've got beaucoup mix options.
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, MI, to Nashville, TN (where Gibson electric guitars continue to be made), Gibson finally settled their acoustic operation in Bozeman, MT, where they continue making some of the finest guitars on the planet by hand.
