The imperials have a gear ratio of 16:1 and provide a durable housing to protect the gear and string post. The Gibson J-200 sports the traditional crown peghead logo which has been on Gibson guitars since the 1940s. The most ornamental part of the guitar is the hand-crafted circle around the soundhole which is a double-ring rosette with the main ring made up of seven-ply binding, the second ring a three-ply binding and with an albalone-filled middle. The guitar is built with hand-scalloped bracings which are placed in a pattern that is the exact same pattern that Gibson's very first 1937 super jumbo.

narrow neck is easy to use for people with smaller hands
well balanced, sits on your knee comfortably
has a good feel while you play, good tactile feedback
stays in tune for a long time, just need to tweak it occasionally
tone is resonant and full, ideal for performing
played by famous people like Elvis Presley, Mark Dinning, Emmilou Harris
enough projection that it can fill a small room without an amp
