Gibson J-200 1956


Out of stock

An impressive Gibson J-200 from 1956. This so called ‘King of the Flat-tops’ has been seen on stage with countless artists like Elvis Presley, Jimmy Page, Little Jimmy Dickens and many more.

This 17-inch Gibson has a spruce top and a beautifully carved maple rear and backside. The top has been decorated with a 7-ply ‘black and white’ binding and the back of the guitar with a 5-ply binding. The flamed maple neck with rosewood fingerboard has a 43 mm wide nut, feels soft and is a delight to play.

Throughout the years the sunburst finish has aged beautifully. Age has left it’s markings on the guitar and a number of small cracks have been professionally repaired during its lifespan. The lower half of the top of the guitar also seems to have had a minor overspray. The Gibson has also had a refret in the past and it shows signs of a neck-reset.

Apart from these minor adjustments the guitar is fully original, from its gold Kluson up to the impressive engraved Celluloid Pickguard.

This Gibson comes in the original Lifton Case.
