With a 17"-wide lower bout, iconic "mustache" bridge, and no shortage of deluxe features, the Gibson J-200 has been the "King of the Flattop Guitars" since 1939. Big and bold sounding, this iconic Gibson model has inspired countless players across a wide variety of genres.
This 1994 Gibson J-200 Centennial is a faithful recreation of the early-'50s SJ-200 specs. It features gorgeous Flamed Maple Back and Sides and the unmistakeable brown engraved flower pickguard. 1994 was the Gibson company's centennial year, so this one sports the "Gibson Centennial" label on the inside. It is in excellent cosmetic condition with no history of repairs or issues. Its pickguard is slightly bubbling up, but it is stable and nicely adhered to the guitar. Like many Gibsons of this era, it also shows lacquer chips around the tuner bushings on the headstock. This one includes a SKB molded plastic case.
As far as playability, this 1994 Gibson J-200 Centennial has nice low action all the way up the neck, and its '50s-era neck profile is full and comfortable. In your hands, it feels every bit as big as it sounds. This is an incredible strummer, but it still has the right response and articulation for fancy picking, too.
