This 1995 Gibson J-200 flat top guitar is in excellent cosmetic condition showing very little signs of play wear throughout. The frets show some signs of usage but have tons of life left in them and the guitar plays fantastic up and down the fingerboard. This J-200 has an optimal neck angle with a medium to tall saddle that could be cut down if desired. This guitar sounds great and really produces the big round, dry articulate sound that these guitars are famous for and that most Gibson flat top players are looking for in a guitar. There is a less than 1 inch long side crack on the bass side lower bout that has been professionally repaired and is completely solid (see photos). The guitar is housed in its original brown Gibson hard shell case. The case exterior has some autographs on it but it is unclear whose signatures these are.
This J-200 has been immaculately cared for and came to our shop from the original owner. These 1990s Bozeman, Montana, made Gibson J-200s with ebony finish are quite hard to come by and this one is a stunner!
