Congratulations - so cool to have one of these on Board.

The ex I played when they were released - brand new from the shop-wall - was a stunner.

Look forward to the review.



Here is my review of this awesome guitar! :)

Serious J-200 tone.

Nice playing, too.

The guitar is a good match for your style.

From Ludwig van Beethoven straight into blues on a Bob Dylan guitar. Guess it says it all.
This Jumbo can do everything and you already show the direction.

Don't think there's any doubt it found the right home. One can almost hear it in your voice. The romance is real, , , is there anything better. .

Many happy hours to you 2 - and may the Board be the lucky watchers of new films as things breaks in. There are big times ahead for all of us.

Thanks for the kind words guys, I dig this guitar completely and I was curious to know when it was built. I contacted the gibson customer service and they got back to me promptly, they said the guitar was made on March 20, 2017.

Congrats!

I do have to admit though that I was happy to get rid of the second pickguard that had been slapped on my 1960 J-200 when I snagged it decades ago. Losing it did not result in any noticeable change in sound but I just thought the instrument looked so much better without it.

Very Nice playing. I have been fingerpicking for over 50 years and still cannot play that clean. The J-200 definitely deserves the reputation of the grand piano of acoustics. Your demo really brings that in focus.

Thank you, I am my own worst critic when it comes to my playing but I still do it anyway because I love music and it's my way of meditating. :)

Most of us are. I have finally figured out that while I am not as good as I wanted to be, I am not near half as bad as I think I am. Meditating is an interesting way to put it. When I am, at my best, in the pocket as the jazz guys used to say, I am not really conscious of what I am doing. No thinking that I can recall going on. Drives others nuts though as they can never tell what I am going to do. Add measures, switch timing, playing melodic lines using parallel 6ths (or at least that is what I have been told I was doing) and all kinds of stuff. Problem is I fall into something I like but can't recall what I was doing.

I can totally relate to that, when I get something going that feels and sounds good I'm in my zen and nothing else matters and I just let things go with the flow.

Ive always liked this guitar apart from the 2 scratch plates, if the top one was
removed would it be finished underneath as the rest of the guitar ?

Hi, yes as far as I know the finish is under the pickguard too.
