From its inaugural appearance in 1937, Gibson’s J200 set a standard others have been trying to match ever since. Today, nearly 71 years later, the legacy lives on in the new J200 Standard. Upon its introduction in the late 1930s, the J200 immediately filled a need for a deeper, more balanced and powerful sound. It gave purveyors of the new American music scene of the 1930s a reliable, well-built instrument, capable of projecting the sound of the guitar well beyond that of any other acoustic on the market; a fact that still holds true today.
It is simply the world’s most famous acoustic guitar, and certainly one of most popular, as evidenced by the list of players that have made it their primary acoustic instrument, among them Ray Whitley, Emmylou Harris, Roy Rogers, Gene Autry, Gram Parsons, and Pete Townshend.
This is probably one of the sweetest guitars you’ll ever play. It has an eerily haunting tone when softly finger picked but you can also lay down some bright country riffs. Any chords you play on this guitar feel as solid as the guitar itself and blues scales just melt into the fretboard. It plays as beautifully as it looks!
