The Gibson SJ-200 Studio 2019 only gets better with age. Constructed with a range of premium tonewoods and the best possible materials available, the SJ-200 Studio projects a distinct and iconic Gibson tone. The SJ-200 Standard features a sitka spruce top which delivers a broad dynamic range, and a sound that develops character over its life. This allows you to achieve a wide variety of genres and playing styles from country and pop to rock and blues. Additionally, the SJ-200's beautiful top is accompanied by walnut back and sides, delivering a strong, clear, fundamental. Furthermore, walnut sonically offers a warm, earthy sound with the overtone depth of rosewood and the clarity of mahogany. A unique sound of premium quality - perfect for numerous playing styles.
Equipped with an LR Baggs VTC and perfect for professionals. This high-quality LR Baggs system features a low-profile undersaddle pickup that's proven more stable and durable than many standard ribbon-type pickups. With an unobtrusive and removable volume/tone control mounted just within the soundhole, the VTC and the SJ-200 together are an unmistakable combination.
Additionally, the VTC features rotary controls for both volume and tone shaping, allowing you to easily tweak your amplified tone. It is also designed to project the rich sonic character that you'd expect from a mic'd up performance in a studio environment. Overall, the LR Baggs VTC captures the magic of your guitar's natural acoustic tone, projecting the sound faithfully and beautifully.
Iconic and distinctive. The SJ-200 Studio offers superb volume and projection due to all the extra room for the sound to reverberate around the body. From the hands of Noel Gallagher to Elvis, to Bob Dylan, the SJ-200 has been favoured over the years by numerous musicians. They all loved the SJ-200 for its sheer volume, distinctive Gibson feel, and iconic tone. Over the years players quickly took to Gibson's super jumbo size, particularly rhythm players due to its deep bass sound, enormous voice, and versatility. Session guitarists will love playing with other musicians, as its dominant voice simply complements other instruments and stands out mightily within a live mix.
Constructed from mahogany, the SJ-200's neck offers a rich, warm, and resonant sound with a quick, dynamic response. Additionally, the mahogany neck features an advanced response profile, which has a flatter fingerboard radius, allowing you to achieve string bends with ease. The smooth playing neck is topped with a walnut fingerboard that not only offers a pleasing aesthetic but provides a balanced, unique earthy tone. Furthermore, without losing any of the SJ-200's original appeal, the fingerboard is graced with iconic mother of pearl graduated crown inlays.
As with many of Gibson's acoustic range, the SJ-200 Studio comes fitted with traditional hand scalloped X-bracing. This specific type of bracing structure consists of two braces forming an 'X' shape across the soundboard which not only enhances the sound and offers a well-balanced tone, but also provides a reinforced stable and durable structure. Furthermore, with traditional hand scalloped X-bracing the SJ-200's tone is enhanced beautifully, providing superior projection and volume.
