So, you’ve always wanted a Vintage Gibson Jumbo? Well here’s your chance. While current book price on this guitar is as high as $4500.00, I’ve seen 68 Customs offered in the five to seven thousand dollar range WITH ISSUES but this absolutely stunning 40 year-old Gibson is starting at just a buck with no reserve.
The Gibson Super Jumbo 200 (or SJ-200, or J-200) is one of the most famous acoustic guitars. This is fitting, as it was introduced as the biggest and fanciest guitar ever. It was manufactured to the specifications of Ray Whitley, a Hollywood singing star, who had spent his own money to create it. He received it in 1937, and production started in 1938.
While most of you looking at this auction already know that the J-200 is hands-down the most popular Rock & Roll acoustic of all time, here’s a little endorsement from just a few players;
The Gibson J200 has been the go-to guitar for rockers from Elvis Presley to Liam Gallagher of Oasis. Not to mention, Pete Townsend, John Sebastian, Clint Black, Emmylou Harris, Motley Crue, The Eagles, Vince Gill, Jimmy Page, Soul Asylum, and literally a countless list of legendary musicians.
This is a one-owner guitar that I am selling for a friend and it has been used professionally since he bought it new in 1968. Now, before I get into it’s issues, I need to point out that this guitar has just been professionally set-up by Jim Eanelli of Jim’s Guitars in Milwaukee and it plays like butter. Jim is as good as they come and has just finished setting up guitars for Darrell Stuermer of Genesis for their upcoming tour – He’s no slouch. The action is super low and the intonation is superb all the way up the fretboard. One of the upgrades of the “Custom” was the gold plated Gibson...
