The Gibson J-200 Standard is another member of the J-200 series of guitars, a series that is built on almost a century of experience in building guitars. The rotomantic tuner has a gear ratio of 14:1 and provides precision tuning as well as a durable housing to protect the string post and the gear. The crown peghead logo is a relic from the 1940s and identifies the J-200 Standard as a distinct member of the Gibson line. The fingerboard is made out of high grade rosewood which is resilient for a stable, balanced tone with clear notes and chords. The Gibson J-200 Standard is built with AAA-grade Sitka spruce for the top of the guitar, and AAA-grade Eastern curly maple for the back and sides. Built into the guitar is the fishman ellipse aura electronics package which keeps the sound to a natural and acoustic quality while staying easy for the artist to work with.

Why is the picture of a Gibson J-200 True Vintage and not a Standard?
