Overview

The Jumbo-sized J-200 is easily one of Gibson's most iconic acoustic guitars. In its history, the J-200 has been marketed as the Super Jumbo, the SJ-200, and has even earned the moniker, "The King of the Flattops." In addition to its huge size and massive tone, the J-200 is distinguished by its array of high-end cosmetic details including pineapple-style inlays and a mustache bridge. In 1999, Gibson released a J-200 as the SJ-200 Reissue using flamed maple back and sides and modeled after a J-200 from the '50s.
