Gibson SJ-200 Standard Steel String Guitar Sunburst, 2015

Gibson SJ-200 Standard Steel String Guitar Sunburst, 2015

Introduced in 1938, the Gibson SJ-200 was the top of the line, ‘King of the Flat Tops’, the largest and fanciest non-archtop model. In 1938, the price was a whopping $200, and as an option, you could have your name inlaid on the fingerboard for $50! It went straight to stages and studios, and has been there since. The SJ-200 has appeared on countless recordings, not just Country – both Pete Townsend and Jimmy Page relied on it.

Gibson J-160E Steel String Acoustic Electric Sunburst, 1966

Gibson J-160E Steel String Acoustic Electric Sunburst, 1966

The Gibson J-160E is one of the most recognisable steel string guitars, due largely to a series of recordings and performances during the early 1960s by The Beatles. Both John Lennon and George Harrison had J-160E models, while McCartney used an Epiphone Texan strung as left handed. Though it looks a lot like the traditional classic J-45 round shoulder dreadnought, the Gibson J-160E has major structural differences. First, because the design goal was to reduce feedback at high stage volumes, the guitar body is entirely laminate, including the top. Rather than X-braced, the top is strongly Ladder braced.
