Gibson 1957 SJ-200 AN

Custom Shop acoustic guitar, all solid with Sitka spruce top, flamed maple body, rosewood fretboard, including case

The new Gibson 1957 SJ-200 AN is the largest flat-top acoustic guitar in the company's history, expanding the Custom Shop Historic collection, and is based on the original from the 1950s. Famous for its loud and deep sound, this guitar is still used today by numerous artists worldwide for powerful strumming, especially by singer-songwriters. Due to the thermally treated wood, the guitar sounds as authentic as an instrument that has been played for years, taking the player back to the good old days. A custom-fit case and a Gibson Accessory Kit are included.

A Sitka spruce top provides clear and strong mids

Sitka spruce wood is one of the most popular materials in guitar building due to its fine structure and its extraordinarily clear sound. It produces very set and clear mid frequencies, which are able to express every single tone very differentiated and cleanly. The Gibson 1957 SJ-200 AN has a very fast response due to its thermally treated wood , which is further enhanced by a scalloped X-bracing and a wafer-thin nitro lacquer . Easily recognizable by its slightly flamed and evenly narrow grain, the North American spruce wood also makes a very good visual impression and with its bright appearance fits perfectly with the other woods used. The large pickguard with floral ornaments and the bridge in elaborate moustache shape with integrated inlays are another highlight of the flat-top classic and give the top its noble and timeless look that makes the instrument so incredibly popular.

Back and sides made of finest flamed maple

Due to its huge super-jumbo construction , this guitar produces very powerful bass frequencies that color the entire tone warm and rich, making the instrument perfect for vocal accompaniment and strumming. The strikingly grained maple wood of the body intersperses the entire sound with a soft note that enriches the clear mid frequencies in a very subtle way and rounds off the balance. Strong flames shimmer lighter or darker depending on the perspective and thus form the even bars in the grain, which give name to this stunning wood and lend the instrument a unique appearance. Cream-colored bindings form a gentle transition between the bright woods of the entire body and separate the individual components with faint lines, thus emphasizing the exciting and even structure of the grain. The open back of the guitar is separated by a fine backstrip that emphasizes the symmetry of the two back parts and runs straight through to the headstock.

A round grippy neck for finger acrobatics

A round maple neck for maximum playability

Despite a long scale length of 647.7 mm , the Gibson 1957 SJ-200 AN guitar can be played easily and courteously in all 20 frets . The reason for this is a two-piece maple neck with a round profile that allows a comfortable grip even in the higher frets and allows the player to elicit a clean tone from the instrument without much effort. The noble rosewood fretboard is decorated with Mother-of-Pearl inlays , which with their unusual crown design emphasize the value of the material and prove why the craftsmanship of the manufacturer is famous worldwide. On the large head plate you will find the company logo and a fine inlay, which in combination with the bell-shaped trussrod cover form a colorful contrast to the black background. Typical for the old super-jumbo models, this guitar is equipped with tuning stable Gotoh Keystone tuners , which fully embody the spirit of the 1950s.
