Gibson J200 VS Jumbo Vintage Sunburst, 1993

Gibson J200 VS Jumbo Vintage Sunburst, 1993

The Gibson J200 VS, for Vintage Sunburst, is one of the largest production acoustics and continues the reign of “The King of the Flat-Tops”. First appearing in 1938, the J-200 was immediately adopted by major country players. The original selling price was $200, with a $50 upcharge to have your name inlaid in the fingerboard. The J-200 has sometimes been named the SJ-200 (Super Jumbo), and outside of the war years 1944 to 1946, has been in regular production since its introduction.

❌SOLD❌  Fender SRV Signature Stratocaster Sunburst, 1993

Here we’re looking at a Fender SRV Signature Series Stratocaster, built during 1993 at the Fender plant in Corona, California. Like Number One, it uses an Alder body paired with a Maple neck and a “slab” board fingerboard – however, the fingerboard is apparently Pau Ferro, not Rosewood. In 1963, Fender had not quite worked out how to wrap a thin layer of Rosewood over a curved neck on a production line basis, so a flat board was installed and the top received the crown. And, in 1963, the fingerboard would have been Brazilian Rosewood.
