6-string Acoustic-electric Guitar with Sitka Spruce Top, Maple Back and Sides,

Rosewood Fingerboard。

The classic tone of the Gibson Acoustic J-200 Standard acoustic-electric guitar is

sure to light up any stage or studio session. This "King of the Flat Tops" features

a loud, clear voice for both strumming and delicate fingerpicking, thanks to its

AAA solid Sitka spruce top and flame maple back and sides.
From its inaugural appearance in 1937, Gibson's J200 set a standard others

have been trying to match ever since. Today--nearly 71 years later--the legacy

of Gibson's King of the Flat-tops lives on in the J200 Standard. Upon its

introduction in the late 1930s, the J200 immediately filled a need for a deeper,

more balanced and powerful sound. It gave purveyors of the American music

scene of the 1930s a reliable, well-built instrument, capable of projecting the

sound of the guitar well beyond that of any other acoustic on the market--a fact

that still holds true today. It is simply the world's most famous acoustic guitar,

and certainly one of most popular, as evidenced by the list of players that have

made it their primary acoustic instrument, among them Ray Whitley, Emmylou

Harris, Roy Rogers, Gene Autry, Gram Parsons, and Pete Townshend.
