Gibson USA Bob Dylan SJ-200 Player's Edition Vintage Sunburst overview from GAK

The Gibson Bob Dylan SJ-200 Players Edition 2018, Vintage Sunburst is a lovingly constructed take on the infamous Bob Dylan's customised SJ-200. Taking the raw, expressive heart of what made the original so special, Gibson has tastefully fixed the Bob Dylan SJ-200 up with a few contemporary features to enhance its playability for the modern performing artist.

The Bob Dylan SJ-200's body is constructed using a flame maple back and sides with an Adirondack red spruce top that moves through a rich colour transition outwards towards to the edge. Its double pick guards feature an engraved vine and floral pattern with mother-of-pearl dot inlay.

The Bob Dylan SJ-200's 2-piece maple neck is finished in an eye-catching vintage sunburst and topped with a rosewood fingerboard finished with stunning pearl Bella Voce inlays. Sitting atop of this is the black headstock lined with gold Grover rotomatic tuners and featuring the classic Gibson script logo in mother of pearl above Bob Dylan's eye logo finished in high detail.

Outstanding tonal quality results from the Bob Dylan SJ-200's premium tonewoods and dimensions, with Adirondack red spruce on top which is renown as having the highest volume ceiling of almost any species out there. The classic SJ-200 dimensions are large, its body provides a roomy natural resonance and great bass tones, the maple neck with rosewood fingerboard further contributes to the guitars beautiful natural resonance and warmth.

The L.R Baggs Anthem system ensures you capture in detail the true spirit of the Bob Dylan SJ-200. The award-winning pickup and microphone combo feature L.R Baggs famed TRU.MIC technology and combines their signature condenser microphone with their class-leading element pickup. The result is a system that produces a truly natural tone, emulating the dynamics of a studio mic'd guitar in the live setting, greatly reducing feedback risk and producing a highly balanced frequency response with fine-tune control dials to find the perfect tone for the moment.

The Bob Dylan SJ-200 pairs beautiful aesthetics with top of the range hardware to give you a truly unique playing experience. Up top, the Gotoh keystone tuners have been moulded top a vintage style design and finished in eye-catching gold. Furthermore, the Bob Dylan SJ-200's bone nut has been meticulously shaped and allows for simple, precision adjustment whilst the moustache bridge ensures even string tension and exact intonation.
