|Playability/Action||This guitar plays very well. The body size is nearly identical to a J-200, so it’s not small, but is still quite comfortable.|
|Case||Original Gibson case included.|
|Comments||Based on the classic J-200, and built under the supervision of Ren Ferguson, the J-100 is a somewhat stripped-down version with less of the decoration but all of the quality. The top is unencumbered by the traditional large and thick pickguard, and so is a little livelier and more resonant. Lots of bass, and overall a very nice guitar.|
