Users of the SJ200-Elvis Presley, Pete Towshend, Jimmy Page and Bert Jansch, at 1500.00 pounds - 12,000.00 pounds, it is hardly something to rush out and buy, this is an investment, money in the bank, but enough about the price, for now.
The "Super jumbo 200" SJ200 is made with AAA flame Maple, it is not a solid top, meaning that the part where the sound hole is (the top), it comprises of two separate pieces of wood, this may mean nothing to a Lehman, but for someone looking for a serious gigging guitar with both bright and trebled tones, it means everything. With the unmistakable "Moustache" bridge piece and thick tortoise shell pick guard with flower design, the guitar is seldom mistaken.
I played one for an hour once before telling the shop steward it was "too big", as a finger picker, the neck is set beautifully on these guitars, I blistered my already hardened fingers with it, every album and concert with an acoustic piece will somewhere in there, have a J200, from the soft picked notes that hum gently away to a bright and trebled sounding strum, there is little in the way of competition for the big Gibson
I have plans to buy one for my 40th Birthday, or failing that, a lottery win, but I WANT ONE!!!
Overall these are not for beginners who have a rich daddy
They take a few years to "Open up", or weather-like getting a new fence, you have to let it breath, let it grow with you
