I have never seen a J-200 like that and sorry but I could have lived happily ever after without seeing it now. Just ain't my cup 'o tea I guess. Think I will stick with my old fashioned maple laminate body J-200.

Laminate body??

 

I remember a site that seemed pretty precise in detailing the J200 (I came across it only once) and it mentions laminate B&S for J200's begining in 56'..!..?

If the laminate B&S was done to the more premium L5...(not sure 60's..pretty sure 70's)..it would not be a surprise that they did it to J200's.

 

If one is interested,Im sure its easy to find out..one thing I can pretty much testify to,in person,is that most Gibson Acoustics..including the King of the Flat Top Guitars, through the 60's-1988..

were pieces of furniture..and should be bought as such. I strongly suspect much of the mid to late 50's production to be the same.
