This is such a nice Gibson acoustic guitar.I saw it about a year ago and fell in love with it right away.It needed some repairs that the shop had done before I got to see it again. The luthier we sent it to in Oregon did a fantastic job. He repaired two cracks on the top and several cracks on the sides of the guitar. They did an outstanding job and the repairs don't detract from the beauty of this amazing acoustic guitar.
This guitar sounds truly amazing. The Jumbo Size body projects crystal clear highs and amazing lows. Compared to a vintage Gibson Country Western guitar that I own, this guitar projects a little morethan that one. The sound is very bold and in your face.
The beautiful Spruce top and Maple Back and sides are incredible as is the custom double pick guard from Gibson. Over the years, this guitar has been played allot as the finger wear on the back of the neck shows. There are several nicks, dings and scratches, but again, that is what you would expect to see on a guitar that is 60 years old.
It has the original Gold Kluson No-line Tuners with original Tulip Buttons. They are in great shape and still work perfectly.There was a strap button installed on the lower end of the neck heel. It's not original, but it is very functional.
The case is something to behold as well.It has mellowed on the exterior to show there is something special inside. The Pink California Girl Plush lining is gorgeous. All latches and hinges work perfectly and the original handlestill working. This guitar is very rare by just being a 1953 SJ 200 but with the custom double Pick guard, you will probably never see another guitar like it. I think it's a real one of a kind.
