1966 Gibson J-200 Guitar
(Serial No. 408532) Excellent condition. Nashville Skyline...that describes this guitar perfectly. Its the same year and model as played by Dylan on one of his most famous recordings. Very clean condition - all original finish and hardware. Flamed maple back and sides, three piece neck, beautiful sunburst finish, engraved pickguard, and mustache bridge with the Tune-o-Matic bridge. I bought this with the intention of replacing the Tune-O-Matic (Dylan's guitar had the Tune-O-Matic replaced with a straight saddle), but after playing it it sounds wonderful and I decided to leave it alone. You be the judge. Here is a link to a YouTube video of this instrument as played by luthier Richie Dotson of Acoustic Box LLC. The J-200 series consistently has very strong projection and good sustain. The bottom end is bold yet balanced across the range with a smokey tone. Very satisfying with a real bite tonally if pushed with a flatpick. These are professional grade guitars. At this level, Gibson didn't mess about with inferior anything. A great guitar from the golden era of Gibson's past..one of Townes Van Zandt's favorites. Excellent strong sounding guitar with the soundyou are looking for, and an excellent response all across the strings and up and down the neck. The action is easy and low. Comes with the original Gibson hardshell case.
