From Our Research Team:
Gibson's Legendary King of the Flat Tops!The Gibson Acoustic J-200 Standard represents Gibson's storied line of Super Jumbo acoustic guitars. This "King of the Flat Tops" features a loud, clear voice for both strumming and delicate fingerpicking, thanks to its AAA solid Sitka spruce top and AAA maple back and sides. A premier Fishman Aura Ellipse pickup system brings the J-200 Standard's rich tone to the stage - or the studio - with class, and its graduated crown inlays adorning the rosewood fingerboard provide an air of elegance. You'll find the perfect blend of classic and modern, with the Gibson J-200 Standard.
Gibson J-200 Standard 6-string Acoustic-electric Guitar at a Glance:
The "King of the Flat Tops" Features Top-quality Tonewoods
Gibson's J-200 Standard is a part of Gibson's storied line of Super Jumbo acoustic guitars. Onboard, you'll find a AAA-grade Sitka spruce top for a strong voice, with AAA-grade curly maple back and sides for balanced tone.
Rosewood Fingerboard with Rolled Edges and Graduated Crown Inlays
The Gibson J-200 Standard's fingerboard comprises high-grade rosewood, which is personally inspected and qualified by Gibson's team of skilled experts before it enters the Gibson factories. This durable wood's resilience makes the fingerboard extremely balanced and stable, and gives each chord and note exceptional clarity and bite. What's more, the J-200 Standard's graduated crown inlays are made of genuine mother-of-pearl, and are inserted into the fingerboard using a special process that eliminates gaps and doesn't require fillers. The fingerboard also sports a rolled edge - instead of the usual right angle, and is slightly beveled for an extremely smooth and comfortable feel, enhancing the J-200 Standard's playability.
Fishman Aura Ellipse Pickup SystemEquipped with the revolutionary Fishman Aura Ellipse system, the J-200 Standard allows acoustic musicians to easily and precisely reproduce the sound of an acoustic guitar as if it miked in a professional studio. The Fishman Aura Ellipse system was programmed to conjure studio sounds with Class A microphone premplifiers and a mix of vintage and modern microphones to create Aura Acoustic images that complement the specific tonal qualities of the J-200 Standard.
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.
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.

For anyone looking for a full, robust, and uncompromised acoustic sound, the Gibson J-200 Standard is it. This instrument is the perfect marriage between a workingman's playability and elegance. It's been played by everyone from Bob Dylan to Lady Antebellum to Jimmy Page. It's a guitar that every acoustic player should own at least once in their lifetime. It's important to note that the J-200 Standard comes with maple back and sides, which gives you a particular focus and projection. The J-200 Custom, on the other hand, comes with rosewood back and sides, which is the way the J-200 was built before 1947. It's going to have more of a scooped midrange. Be sure to know what sound you're looking for.
