Gibson Acoustic SJ-200 Standard - Antique Natural Reviews

4.5 stars based on 1 customer review

Sweetwater Advice

  • Kent Sallaz

    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.

    Gibson J200 is one awsome guitar

    The intonation of this guitar is nothing shy of beautiful. It is a guitar that "sings" with me as I perform, that is unplugged. But plugged in is a little different. I am somewhat disappointed with the plugged in sound. I was not as concerned with the plugged in sound when I tried the guitar out because, I'm thinking, it's got the Fishman Ellipse Aura System; so I can go to the Fishman web site and find a sound I like and download it. I was wrong on that one. The four different sounds programmed into the guitar are the four sounds you get. You can't change or download any different samples into the system. But other than that this is a great guitar and well worth the money spent. Thank you Sweetwater.
