The "King of the Flat Tops" Features Top-quality Tonewoods
Gibson's J-200 Standard is a part of Gibson's storied line of Super Jumbo acoustic guitars. Built-in, you'll find a AAA-grade Sitka spruce top for a bulletproof voice, with AAA-grade curly maple back and sides for balanced tone.
Rosewood Fretboard with Rolled Edges and Graduated Crown Inlays
The Gibson J-200 Standard's fretboard comprises high-grade rosewood, which is personally inspected and qualified by Gibson's team of skilled geeks before it enters the Gibson factories. This durable wood's resilience makes the fretboard extremely balanced and stable, and sports each chord and note exceptional clarity and bite. What's more, the J-200 Standard's graduated crown inlays are made of true mother-of-pearl, and are inserted into the fretboard using a special process that eliminates gaps and doesn't require fillers. The fretboard also sports a rolled edge-instead of the usual right angle, and is a little beveled for an extremely smooth and comfy feel, enhancing the J-200 Standard's playability.
Fishman Aura Ellipse Pickup SystemEquipped with the revolutionary Fishman Aura Ellipse system, the J-200 Standard allows acoustic musicians to easily and precisely reproduce the sound of an acoustic guitar as if it miked in a pro studio. The Fishman Aura Ellipse system was programmed to conjure studio sounds with Class A microphone premplifiers and a mix of classic and modern microphones to make Aura Acoustic images that complement the specific tone qualities of the J-200 Standard.
The Gibson Super Jumbo
Gibson's Super Jumbo guitars were originally made to cut through the loudest acoustic ensembles, allowing them to compete with the mandolins and banjos that were prevalent in "pre-amplified" times. 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 awesome for high-octane strumming and delicate fingerpicking. Everyone from arena rockers to country artists to blues greats go with these guitars for their incredible sound, projection, build quality, and, let's face it, stunning looks.
Classic Gibson Craftsmanship
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 coolest tonewoods, quality hardware, and incredible attention to detail - these instruments are made to sound killer 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 coolest guitars on the planet by hand.
