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. Their legendary tone and power earned them the title King of the Flattops
! 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 hi-octane strumming and delicate fingerpicking. Everyone from rockers to country artists to blues greats choose these guitars for their incredible sound, projection, build quality, and, let's face it, stunning looks.
The New SJ200EC – A Modern Classic
The Gibson SJ200EC Modern Classic acoustic guitar gives you the look and sound of an authentic Super Jumbo with a few modern touches. Sporting a premium solid spruce top, solid flame maple back and sides, a comfortable maple neck with a radiused rosewood fingerboard, and a generous cutaway for easy access to the upper register, the SJ200 is a beautiful instrument that can really pump out some acoustic volume! The added active electronics allow you to take that sound anywhere.
Gibson Craftsmanship – Tradition of Excellence
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.
Gibson puts a few new twists on a classic! For over 100 years the luthiers of Gibson have been creating some of the best, most sought after acoustic guitars the world has ever seen. Because of their early vision and commitment to quality, very little has changed in the way we build our acoustic guitars. With the introduction of the Modern Classic Series, however, the luthiers at Gibson Montana have incorporated a few modern conventions, into our classic line. All Modern Classic models feature premium solid tonewoods, a thinner, faster neck profile with comfortable radiused fingerboard edge, bone nuts, TUSQ compensated saddles, Grover Rotomatic tuners, rosewood components, and a premium pickup system. All these elements add up to an instrument that sounds great out of the box, and will only improve over time. The Gibson Acoustic True Vintage series are not only great investments, but reliable companions that will continue to inspire you for years to come.
Gibson: Over 100 years of a good thing
Gibson guitars have been around for well over a century. When guitarists are looking for an outstanding combination of superb tone and playability along with great looks and gorgeous finishes, the choice for most of those 100 plus years has been Gibson. From their amazing collection of fine acoustics to the electric guitars that literally rewrote music history, Gibson guitars have been on almost every chart-topping album from artists like The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Cream and Led Zeppelin.
These "first call
instruments also cross an enormous array of diverse styles, from folk and country to blues and hard rock. With that resume, it's not surprising that so many of Gibson's best-selling instruments have changed little over the decades. Because there's just no sense in messing with a good thing!
ONLY A GIBSON IS GOOD ENOUGH
