It is a premium model that is rarely circulated.

This one with a mustache bridge was made in 1940.
The number of shipments in 1940 is recorded as 56, indicating its rarity.

The body top is Adirondack spruce.
The fine grain is very beautiful.
The sunburst black remains firmly in place and has a very stately appearance.

Side backs are mahogany. The chequered appearance tells the history of this vintage instrument.

The original SJ-100 had a stair-step headstock and adjustable saddles for each string,
This one has a normal taper head and fixed saddle, a special specification unique to the transitional period of the '40s.

The script logo inlaid on the head is a supreme example of vintage Gibson.

The deep bass and ebony fingerboard give it a rich sound. You can enjoy the vintage tone with a voluptuous and persuasive sound.
