Gibson SJ-200 True Vintage
Released January, 2010
The Pros:Decorative rosette pickguard has a classic, almost antique feel to it. Consistent sound that accounts for playing style and still sounds sweet. Can take some heavy playing styles and not show signs of wear.
The Cons:Needs to be checked upon receipt, frequent reports of damage during shipping.
The Gibson SJ-200 True Vintage has a different tuner than other super jumbo Gibsons, a Gotoh green button, Kluson-style tuner. The gear ratio is 15:1. The guitar has the standard Crown Peghead Logo which has been included on Gibson guitars since the 1940s.

The pickguard is a standard super jumbo shape but it is hand-engraved and has traditional floral and vine designs with a cream border with citrus dots. The fingerboard is made out of rosewood and is individually inspected before built into the guitar. The hand scalloped bracing is a standard feature of Gibson guitars, and it is placed in the same pattern as the original super jumbo guitars designed in 1937 which helps give it the same deep sound and fleshed out frequency range.
