Gibson J 200

Vintage = $$$$$$$$

 

 

But they are so worth it especially those built 1955-1959 (or 1960 if you favor a thinner neck). But yeah, I could not afford the J-200 we own if I had to buy it today.

 

I would also say make sure you play a bunch of them. Their sound is not everyone's cup of tea. But they may just be the best strummers on the face of the planet.

I played a killer 57 J200 at the Frethouse.... And yes it was killer.... But $9000 would had been too painful...lol

I tried.... nobody budged.... so I ended up paying $3799 [confused]

 

Yes, you've got to find a dealer that's willing discount. I've bought guitars at Wildwood, including a couple new Gibson guitars and they've given me discounts. For instance, last year I bought a AJ Red Spruce MAP $3299 and I got it for $2900 - about 12%.

No difference AFAIK.

 

Go to their website: http://www2.gibson.com/Products/Acoustic-Instruments/Super-Jumbo/Gibson-Acoustic/SJ-200-Standard.aspx

 

You'll notice in the upper left text display "SJ-200 Standard"

 

And over the image of the guitar is "King of the Flat-tops" . . J-200 Standard

 

Confusing enough for you? . B)

Sweetwater quoted me $3180.00 after Zzounds quoted me $3197 after I sent them a lowest price match request. The one I sent them was Musicians Friends $3230, which was MAP minus the 15% off coupon they are currently running. This is ok if you are ok with a mail order and not being able to play it first.
