One has made it to NZ. Worldwide Limited Edition of 40. 2016 Gibson SJ-200 Amber Quilt Acoustic Electric - Amberburst. Brand new, un-played, not been a demo in a store.
This King of the Flat Tops features a loud, clear voice for both strumming and delicate fingerpicking, thanks to its AAA solid Sitka spruce top and gorgeous quilted maple back and sides. An LR Baggs Anthem pickup system brings the SJ-200 Amber Quilt's rich tone to the stage or studio.
Gibson's limited-edition SJ-200 Quilt is built from top-quality tonewoods. Solid Sitka spruce top gives the guitar a strong voice that balances full-sounding highs with a pillowy low end. The back, sides, and neck are made from AAA quilt maple. Not only is this enchanting to look at, but the maple adds definition and sustain to the guitar's voice.
Fingerboard is made from high-grade rosewood, personally inspected and qualified by Gibson's team of skilled experts. This wood's character adds warmth and harmonic content to each chord and note. The crown inlays are made of genuine mother-of-pearl and inserted into the fingerboard using a special process that eliminates gaps and doesn't require fillers. Fingerboard rolled edges offer a smooth and comfortable feel.
Loaded with a feedback-busting, natural-sounding pickup system: the LR Baggs Anthem. The Anthem is a combination of a well-designed microphone that picks up the natural tone, and the popular Element under-saddle pickup for a clean, clear, and dynamic sound. The LR Baggs Anthem is so full of detail, warmth, and personality.
