The Gibson SJ 200 is one of the iconic steel string flat top guitars. Introduced in 1937, it was an immediate hit. While it’s a fairly large guitar – according to the 1938 Gibson catalog, the SJ stands for Super Jumbo, after all – it’s actually quite comfortable to play. Tonally, it’s very even, and can be rather loud with great projection.
The LG-1 was introduced in 1942, along with the LG-2 and LG-3. However, the demands of World War 2 almost immediately stopped the production of the LG-1 and LG-3, and they were re-introduced in 1945. In its first release, the LG-1 had a brown top finish, but received a sunburst finish after the war. Production ended in 1974.
