The Gibson J-200 Custom is a member of Gibson's storied super jumbo acoustic guitars. It comes built with gold grover imperial tuners, an exact replication from the original which came into the guitar world in the early 1970s. The imperials have a gear ratio of 16:1 and provide a durable housing to protect the gear and string post. The Gibson J-200 sports the traditional crown peghead logo which has been on Gibson guitars since the 1940s. The most ornamental part of the guitar is the hand-crafted circle around the soundhole which is a double-ring rosette with the main ring made up of seven-ply binding, the second ring a three-ply binding and with an albalone-filled middle. The guitar is built with hand-scalloped bracings which are placed in a pattern that is the exact same pattern that Gibson's very first 1937 super jumbo.
