So I finally took the plunge and purchased a Brand New Gibson SJ 200.  It arrived today, I am pleased.  I've been playing since I was 10 years old, but after loosing 3 fingers on my chord hand in an accident in 1996 I thought my playing days were over.. They were able to reattach my middle and ring finger though I've no feeling in those fingers. Anyway thought I was done playing, so I stowed my guitars, and my ambition for 25 years. I Retired 2 years ago, and needed something to focus on and decided to pick up playing again. At 60 with a lot of free time I was able to dedicate myself, and Im now a better player than I was pre accident.  I have a Taylor 324ce, and a 410ce, and thought I had the best, but this new Gibson SJ 200 produces fantastic tones, and records like a dream.  Glad to finally have a Gibson of my own, and Im glad to be joining this forum.  Thanks

Congrats on your retirement, Bravohorn 1, and on the new Gibson.

I admire that you are playing, and enjoying it, after losing your digits. 

Django Reinhardt would be proud of you!!

Welcome to the forum and I can relate on your tragedy.  I started out at 13, nearly cut off my left arm at 16 in an accident, & got back in it at 60 when I retired from the RR. I've staid at it now for 8 years and am much better than when I was younger. I quit at 28 though. Good on you for not giving up.
