About Gibson SJ 200

The Gibson SJ-200 is a large jumbo acoustic guitar with a rich heritage and looks to spare! This XL-sized acoustic is a popular choice with singers and front-men looking to make a statement as they perform. Released back in 1937, the SJ-200 has remained relatively unchanged since then, retaining the Spruce and Maple construction from the definitive late 40s model (earliest examples had Rosewood instead of the Maple) as well as all of the distinctive styling.

Visually, the SJ-200 is stunning: details abound from the elaborate pickguard to the 'mustache' bridge, the detailed inlays to the wonderful sunburst finish of the most famous examples. The SJ-200 sounds as it looks: large, bright and impressive. It's no wonder artists including Bob Dylan, Sheryl Crow and the King himself, Elvis Presley, chose to perform with the SJ-200.
