SJ-200 Amber Quilt

2016 limited run SJ-200. 

The SJ-200 Amber quilt is simply a stunning guitar, made in 2016 as a limited run by the folks at Gibson guitars.
The AAA quilted maple and Amber burst finish works beautifully together and are truly what makes this super jumbo a unique instrument which looks great on every stage, studio and living room.

The sound, thanks to the choice of maple and spruce woods, body size and building technique, is big and crystal clear.
Most people think that a super jumbo body projects a super big low end regardless of the woods that are used. That’s not true. This guitar has just the right amount of everything. Thanks to the brilliance of maple and lows of the jumbo size, the SJ-200 is well balanced and stands right on the border of being dry sounding, yet having just about enough sustain. Try strumming it, it’s just great! No wonder it is referred to as the king of flat-tops.

On top of the beauty, balance and strong acoustic sound projection, the SJ-200 Amber quilt comes with an L.R Baggs Anthem pickup which combines an under-the-bridge microphone and an under-the-saddle piezo pickup. when set to microphone only, it will deliver a natural amplified sound of the guitar. If you face any feedback issues, mixing less of the mic and more or the piezo will solve the problem while retaining most of the natural sound of the microphone.
