Miscellaneous

Case Gibson Hardshell

Feast your eyes on this gorgeous 2015 SJ-200, from the Montana facility. She is in pretty much mint condition & was only used once for a studio project & then kept in her case by the owner, hence is in amazing condition. She is a real pleasure to play & comes fitted with a most excellent Fishman Ellipse Aura Pickup System. This is a top of the range Fishman, that will give you all you require in the sound depot & cost an additional £350 to the factory spec price. (Please read the spec of this amazing pickup below)

Ellipse Aura allows acoustic musicians to easily and accurately replicate the sound of their instrument, as mic’d in a professional studio. Players can load up to four Aura Images into this intuitive, discreetly mounted soundhole-mounted preamp. The ergonomic design of the Ellipse Aura puts slider controls at the player’s fingertips, helping to maintain a natural playing position.

The Ellipse Aura features Pickup/Image Blend, Volume and switchable Natural I and Natural II Low Frequency tone shaping, a Phase Switch and automatic Anti-Feedback control. To create true-to-life sound. The Ellipse Aura combines our most sophisticated onboard preamp design with the power of Aura Acoustic Imaging Technology.

The King Of The Flat-Tops

The legacy of Gibson’s “King of the Flat-tops” lives on in the SJ-200 Standard. From its inaugural appearance in 1937, Gibson’s SJ-200 set an unmatched standard. The SJ-200 continues a legacy of the world’s most famous acoustic guitar, and certainly one of the most popular.

Originally dubbed the “Super Jumbo” and marketed as their highest-end flat top acoustic, Gibson began making the SJ-200 in limited quantities in 1937. The SJ-200 Standard 2019 is the newest version of the “king of the flattops,” hand-built with maple back and sides and a sitka spruce top with traditional hand-scalloped X-bracing. Everything about this guitar screams classic, from the rounded neck profile to the pickguard.

About Gibson Montana:
Luthier Orville Gibson founded the Gibson Mandolin-Guitar Mfg. Co. Ltd. in Kalamazoo, MI in 1902. Its original aim was to make mandolins and mandolin-family instruments. Over the last 100-plus years, Gibson Brands, Inc., as it is now known, has since evolved into the world’s premier manufacturer of semi-hollow and hollow body electric guitars, as well as a celebrated portfolio of innovative solid-body and acoustic models.

“Some people hear their own inner voices with great clearness. And they live by what they hear. Such people become crazy… or they become legend.” So wrote Montana author Jim Harrison, perhaps about the master luthiers of Gibson Montana, which produces all of Gibson’s acoustic guitars.
