Play the “King of the Flat-Tops.” This Gibson Jumbo acoustic-electric guitar has been offering players a balanced, warm tone for over 70 years.
Sie spielt sich fast von alleine! Super voluminöser aber sehr präziser Sound!
Wenig gespielt, da ich noch viele andere Gitarren habe und meistens die Telecaster oder meine Ovation Adamas spiele. Die Gibson Jumbo – eine der besten überhaupt und von vielen Stars gespielt – ist aber eigentlich meine große Liebe, nur ist sie viel zu schade für den Schaukasten. Sie sollte ständig gespielt werden. Verkaufspreis in den USA zwischen 3000 und 4000 US-Dollar, je nach Ausstattung (Tonabnehmer). In meiner Jumbo ist mit dem Fishman eines der besten Tonabnehmersystem verbaut.
AAA-grade Sitka spruce top: Exceptional grain, crisp and focused tone
AAA-grade Eastern curly maple back and sides: Unique looks, vibrant warm tone, great projection
Fishman pickup system: Blends soundhole/piezo pickups for authentic tone
Rosewood fretboard: Open, warm tone and smooth playing feel
One of most iconic steel-strings of all time, the J-200 remains an absolute classic with over 70 years of production under its belt. Since 1938, players in every genre have gravitated towards the Super Jumbo’s unique playing experience and enormous, room-filling tone. The current J-200 includes modern electronics to complement the classic shape and style that has earned this guitar a reputation as “the King of the Flattops.”
Super Jumbo Gibson Tone
The J-200 is famous for the enormity of its bright sound, with robust low-end and well-defined highs. The jumbo shape encourages fierce, passionate strumming which projects gorgeous textures with accuracy and power. The use of AAA-grade curly maple on the back and sides provides the hallmark warmth, while the Sitka spruce top adds some snap to the high end. Though a strumming instrument at root, the J-200 carries a pristine tonal balance which allows crisp finger-picking to ring out with clarity and poise. No matter what your playing style or genre, the J-200 sings with brilliant balance and unrivaled projection that will keep you playing hour after hour, night after night.
Looks Fit for a Flattop King
It wasn’t just captivating tones that earned this guitar “the King of the Flattops” moniker. The J-200 also makes a commanding visual statement with vintage-style hardware and appointments. The rosewood fingerboard features mother-of-pearl crown inlays, which pair particularly well with the vine pattern on the pickguard. The bridge is in the classic “mustache” style which combines with the gold Grover rotomatic tuners for outstanding tuning stability.
Fishman Pickup System
This J-200 comes with a very exciting Fishman pickup system – one of the best you can buy. This sophisticated system uses an advanced Fishman preamp as well as astounding acoustic images to bring out the best qualities of the J-200’s sound. The controls rest in the sound-hole of the guitar and include pickup/image blend and volume controls, as well as a feedback combating phase switch.
Gold Grover Rotomatic Tuners
Grover’s original Rotomatic tuners are an engineering marvel, with style and performance exactly suited for the J200 Standard. With a gear ratio of 14:1, the Rotomatics deliver precision tuning in a durable housing that provides maximum protection for the gear and string post. All moving parts are cut for exact meshing, eliminating the possibility of slippage. A countersunk tension screw lets players regulate the tuning tension to any degree. A special lubricant inside the gear box provides smooth and accurate tuning stability.
