Here we have a very special guitar. This is a 1930’s Gibson SJ-200 Reissue. The SJ-200 was first introduced (aside from the prototype) in 1938. This reissue was designed to a close (not quite exact) replica of the first SJ-200’s. This is freaking cool!
In addition to the awesome features of this guitar, Charlie Daniels himself has autographed the body. Charlie is a music legend (The Devil Went Down to Georgia), which adds to the collectability of this guitar. I’m certain the autograph could be removed if the owner, for some reason, wished it to be.
This guitar has never been owned. It is brand new and unplayed, therefore it is in perfect condition!
There a few things about this guitar which particularly stand out to me. The first is the Adirondack spruce top. Gibson does not produce very many guitars with Adirondack. This wood has extremely good tonal qualities and is highly-regarded as one of the best (if not the best) woods for guitar tops. Another standout feature of this guitar is the use of hide glue in its construction. Many people believe hide glue impedes less on the tone of a guitar than the alternative glues most guitars are constructed with. These two things, combined with the rest of the features, make this guitar a great instrument!
Included with the guitar is the original hardshell case. This case was made for Gibson by TKL. It is the highest quality case I have ever seen with a Gibson acoustic. I’ve owned many Gibson custom guitars, even some Ren Ferguson Master Museums, and none have had a nicer case than this.
Also included is the original paperwork, as shown in the photos.
