SJ-300 v SJ-200???

Recommended Posts

Apples and oranges. The SJ-300 has a very powerful tone with LOTS of

bottom end. The SJ-200 is very bright and favors the upper end. For

strumming, there is nothing better than the SJ-200. I have heard

more accomplished finger-pickers make the rosewood Super Jumbo

sound wonderful. Just depends on what you are looking for.

I have a J200 Custom 2009 model, and that is the same as an SJ 300. I love the sound of it and would never trade it in for a maple 200. It sounds wonderful when strumming, and the sound is deep and full. With 0.13 strings it gets too full to my ears though. I have changed to 0.12 strings, and now it sounds perfect again! Too hard strumming makes it a bit too boomy though, but I never play that hard anyway.

I love my Maple SJ200, it has a unique tone, and was the guitar that made me fall in love with Maple as a tonewood.

 

Having said that, I played the Prewar Western Classic '200 (in Rosewood) at Gibson HQ a year or so ago, and it was stunning, truly one of the most intergalactically delicious guitars I have ever played.

 

I would love to own both...
