Here we have serial number 20 of 250 in the Gibson Elvis King of Rock J-200 series. This is the lowest serial number I have ever seen of this collection. Typically, the collectability (and price) of these items is based quite heavily on which serial number the guitar has. The first 50 of a collection are regarded as the prime, while the top 20 are usually hoarded by collectors. This is a rarity, indeed!
This guitar features very unique inlays. There are mother-of-pearl Elvis-style crowns on the headstock, fretboard, and the pickguard! The bridge is completely unique to the Elvis J-200. This guitar has a very classy look.
The top of the guitar is Sitka spruce, while the back and sides are maple. The fretboard is ebony, very fitting for the black theme of this guitar.
The value of this guitar will continue to rise with time, especially considering its low serial number. There won’t be any more of these produced, either.
Gibson produced this guitar in 1996. The guitar is in excellent condition. It has been played lightly, but shows very little signs of wear. The finish has the typical finish checking for the age of the guitar. The body of the guitar has no dings, dents, or scratches. It has been well-cared for, indeed.
Included with the guitar is the original hardshell case.
