❌NO LONGER AVAILABLE❌ Gibson Country Western Model SJ Natural, 1956

This Gibson Country Western was built during the model’s first year, and is in good playing order. It has had some repairs – it is 62 years old, after all – including some cleated top cracks and over-sprayed finish. The tuners have been replaced with new vintage-style models, and work well. As is typical, the pickguard is lifting a bit. Under the bridge, a sub-plate has been added to the bridge plate due to normal wear. The top is spruce, the back, sides and neck are mahogany, and the fingerboard and bridge are rosewood. The fingerboard is bound and has dual-parallellogram position markers, as an ‘upgrade’ from more basic models like th J-45.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson SJ-200 Steel String Guitar Sunburst, 1954

The Gibson SJ-200 has been in continuous production since 1938, with a hiatus during the WW2 years 1944 to 1946. Renamed the J-200 in 1955, it is one of Gibson’s most recognisable and popular designs. It appears on many recordings and stages. Though it’s often associated with Country and Western, it is the acoustic used on both The Who’s Pinball Wizard and all the acoustic parts on the first Led Zeppelin album.

The Gibson SJ-100 hearkens back to the early Super Jumbo flat-tops built between 1939 and 1943. While it shares the body shape of the famous J-200, it has modest decoration and most importantly, uses Mahogany instead of Maple for the back, sides and neck. The tops are with Indian Rosewood for the fingerboard and bridge on both versions.
