From Elvis to Emmylou to Townsend – The Guitar of Rock and Roll Icons Updated for Today’s Performer
From it’s distinctive pickguard and ‘moustache’ bridge to the AAA flame maple back and sides this classic Gibson Super Jumbo guitar is just plain gorgeous. The fact that its big deep bass and crystal clear highs have cut through the mix for everyone from singing cowboys to rock and roll icons is an added bonus. Gibson’s Modern Classic series SJ200 is modeled on the iconic early ’50s maple-bodied model and adds modern electronics to the classic good looks and great sound for a truly versatile instrument. The premium solid Sitka spruce top and solid maple back and sides combine for a full tone with plenty of cut, and the round-profile maple neck with Indian rosewood fingerboard and mother of pearl ‘Crown’ inlays makes for comfortable playing. Modern features include Gibson’s new 'Big Sky' radiused fingerboard edges and Fishman electronics with a sound-holemounted volume control.
