Product Description

Gibson's J200 Studio proudly maintains the tradition and excellence of Gibson Acoustic's Super Jumbo line, offering a remarkable combination of features that deliver all the sweet tone, clarity and presence expected from a Super Jumbo. The simple elegance of the J200 Studio is evident in every detail, including its premium Sitka spruce top and attractive maple back and sides, releasing a rich, full, and balanced high end and grand projection.

Nickel Grover Rotomatic Tuners
Grover's original Rotomatic tuners are an engineering marvel, with style and performance exactly suited for the J200 Studio. With a gear ratio of 14:1, the Rotomatics deliver precision tuning in a durable housing that provides maximum protection for the gear and string post. All moving parts are cut for exact meshing, eliminating the possibility of slippage. A countersunk tension screw lets players regulate the tuning tension to any degree. A special lubricant inside the gear box provides smooth and accurate tuning stability.

Crown Peghead Logo
Gibson put the first crown peghead logo on an ES-300 back in 1940, and it has graced the headstocks of many legendary Gibson guitars ever since, including the J200 Studio. Over the years, it has also been called a "thistle" because of the group of flowering plants with the sharp prickles, though Gibson has preferred to call it a "crown."

Pickguard
The pickguard for the J200 Studio is Gibson's standard plain tortoise Super Jumbo shape, enhanced with an engraved cream-colored border. As with all of Gibson Acoustic's pickguards, the coloring, inlay, and binding are all done by hand.

Rosette
A rosette is the beautiful, hand-crafted circle around the sound-hole, and can be one of the most ornamental elements of any acoustic guitar. It is also one of the most subtle and complicated woodworking decorations on any acoustic guitar. The rosette on the J200 Studio is a double-ring rosette, with the main ring consisting of seven-ply binding, and the second ring three-ply binding, adding a stylish, understated elegance to the J200 Studio.

Rosewood Fingerboard with Rolled Edges and Graduated Crown Inlay
The fingerboard of Gibson's J200 Studio is constructed from the highest grade rosewood on earth, which is personally inspected and qualified by Gibson's team of skilled experts before it enters the Gibson factories. The resilience of this durable wood makes the fingerboard extremely balanced and stable, and gives each chord and note unparalleled clarity and bite. The J200 Studio's graduated crown inlays are made of genuine mother of pearl, and are inserted into the fingerboard using a process that eliminates gaps and doesn't require the use of fillers. The fingerboard also sports a rolled edge--instead of the usual right angle where the fingerboard surface meets the neck, Gibson Acoustic's rolled edge is slightly beveled for an extremely smooth and comfortable feel, enhancing the playability of the J200 Studio.

Body Tonewoods (back, sides and top)
The top of the J200 Studio is made from AA-grade Sitka spruce, while plain maple is used for the back and sides, giving the all the deep, rich tone, clarity and presence expected from a Gibson Super Jumbo. Selecting the right wood, and the formula to dry it out, are two of the most central procedures to Gibson's guitar-building process. Beginning with its first catalog in 1903, Gibson has assured its customers that every guitar would be built using woods with "the most durable, elastic, and sonorous qualities," and today's guitars from Gibson Acoustic are no different.

Fishman Aura Pro Acoustic Pickup System
Gibson's J200 Studio comes equipped with a built-in Fishman Aura Pro, featuring Fishman's popular Aura Acoustic Imaging Technology. This ground-breaking pickup system reproduces the natural sound of the J200 Studio as miked in a professional studio, and onstage, thus eliminating the complicated setups of expensive microphones. Auro Pro uses digital algorithms to create images of various microphones' captured sounds. Players can then blend these images with an acoustic guitar's pickup to produce an immediate and dramatic improvement in amplified sound. The Fishman Aura Pro's preamp includes a tuner, and is mounted on the bass side rim of the upper bout.

Bracing
Every acoustic guitar made by Gibson features hand-scalloped, radiused top bracing inside the body, a feature normally found only in limited run, hand-made guitars. By scalloping each brace by hand, the natural sound of the acoustic is focused more toward the center of the body, enhancing the instrument's sound projection. The lightweight bracing pattern inside the J200 Studio --the same pattern used in Gibson's first Super Jumbo in 1937--is constructed to support and strengthen a very large surface, thus allowing the top more freedom of movement to vibrate and project sound. The placement of the braces inside the J200 Studio also creates powerful, deep lows with full frequency range, producing the incredibly balanced, huge sound Gibson's Super Jumbos are so noted for. zZounds is an authorized dealer of Gibson products.

4.5 out of 5 (4 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Gorgeous Gibson Super Jumbo!!"
Overall: This guitar comes in many extravagent varities and the prices go up with it. I purchased the Gibson J-200 Studio at zZounds and got the best deal, I highly recomend this company. I have purchased 3 Martins at zZounds as well and they have always delivered on price and service! Back to the Gibson, The Gibson Studio model ( J-200) is the least expensive version of the Gibson Super Jumbos and the next step up is the Standard Model which has the frilly artwork on the pickguard, which I personally do not care for, it does however have gold tuners versus chrome but over time the gold plating can oxidize and they do have back & sides of Eastern Curly Maple versus the Studios Plain maple, (I'm told no sound quality difference, just better looking), I think the plain maple looks incredible though, its quite stunning, nothing "plain" about it. The extra money for the standard also gets you abalone in the bridge but again makes the overall look fussy versus classy in my opinon. From the Studio to the Standard then you have the True Vintage model, Montana Gold model, Pete Townsend Model, and several Custom Models. So at $2,999, you are basically buying the same high quality Gibson Jumbo guitar with the same woods, same gorgeous mother of pearl inlays, and same built in Aura sound system as the other models that go to $5,000 and beyond! Sound is sweet and warm not as loud and booming as a Martin but a sound you will fall in love with. Perfect for studio recording, songwriting, and live performance. I was surprised how good it felt in my hands and how smooth the neck was making playabitity a snap! Easiliy the best playing guitar I have ever held or played! It looks of course, incredible! better looking in person than any picture you have seen. Backed by Gibsons famous original owner warranty. Nothing like it for the last 75 years!
