Gibson Acoustic 2018 Limited 1968 SJ-200 Overview by GAK:
The 'King of the Flat-tops' with the vintage vibe and feel from an era that became known as some of the most prized Gibson instruments. This stunning 2018 Limited Edition 1968 SJ-200 is a reissue of one of the finest years of the venerable SJ-200s production, from its introduction in 1953 to the present day. The double antiqued binding gives it a vintage aesthetic along with period-correct features including a narrow 1.68’’ nut width, double antiqued binding, 60’s era solid Moustache bridge, and vintage-style SJ-200 pickguard. A modern inclusion of LR Baggs' excellent VTC pickup/preamp ensures it sounds as good plugged in as unplugged!
