|Comments|| These two spectacular Gibson J-200M Trophy 75th Anniversary models are part of a limited run of 75 instruments, made in Bozeman, Montana and celebrating the 75th anniversary of the J-200. Introduced in 1937 for Ray Whitely, the J-200 shot to the top of the shelf for country and movie performers. It’s also been used on many classic rock recordings.
Closely based on the J-200 but smaller, these guitars are very comfortable to play; the body size is drawn from the J-165 and the scale length is down to 24.75″. They are a little more tonally balanced than the J-200 with a bit less empahsis on the bottom end.
Very comfortable to play, great sound, classic proportions, spectacular wood choices.
