SJ-200 Special HCS
Limited SJ-200 with Legendary Burst
$4,649
The SJ-200 is famed as the King of the Flat-tops, and it has never looked better than this Limited Edition guitar in Gibson's most iconic finish: luscious Heritage Cherry Sunburst in genuine high-gloss nitrocellulos lacquer. The classic SJ-200 construction complement of solid AAA Sitka spruce top and solid flamed-maple back and sides looks superb, while achieving a bold, rich, clear and cutting performance. Elegant six-ply top binding, four-ply back binding, and single-ply fingerboard binding is enhanced by mother-of-pearl crown inlays, a traditional floral SJ-200 pickguard, and a scrollwork SJ-200 bridge. The headstock is graced with gold Grover Imperial tuners, and an L.R. Baggs Anthem pickup system makes it plug'n'play ready in any venue.
