The big sound and classy look, but in a smaller package.
L-200 Emmylou Harris
Legendary singer-songwriter Emmylou Harris’s love of Gibson Jumbo acoustics is well documented. From her duets with country-rock pioneer Gram Parsons and his 1960s J-200—which she still owns—to her custom-painted pink J-200 which she used exclusively on her 1985 album The Ballad Of Sally Rose, Harris’ career has been distinguished by her close association with Gibson. That friendship endures today with the L-200 Emmylou Harris acoustic guitar, a model that captures the big sound and classy look of Gibson’s SJ-200, but in a smaller package designed to meet the performance and travel demands of any artist. First introduced in 2002, the L-200—the inspiration for Gibson’s CJ-165 line—features a body design that is smaller and thinner than the SJ-200, but braced to produce the powerfully balanced, natural sound so closely associated with it.
