Gibson acoustic guitars are the chosen option from many great guitar players like Johnny Cash or Pete Townshend and using 3 of the most acclaimed models Gibson has upgraded the true vintage product line with improved reissues of Hummingbird, J-45 and SJ-200 acoustic guitars. Three different guitars (super jumbo, round shoulder and dreadnought sizes) from three different periods 30’s, 40’s and 60’s that today are still played by many musicians.
These guitars share some features like red spruce top, solid AAA Madagascar rosewood fingerboard and bridge, 21 frets, certificate of authenticity and limited number. But specific features, for the Gibson Acoustic Limited True Vintage Hummingbird, are mahogany body and neck, round profile, 24.75″ scale length and Gold Keystone tuners.
The Gibson Acoustic Limited True Vintage J-45 is the second on the row and comes with mahogany body and neck, V shape profile, 24.75″ scale length and white button nickel Gotoh tuners.
The last in the Gibson Acoustic Limited True Vintage SJ-200 and features AAA flame maple body and maple neck, round profile, 25.5″ scale length and gold Gotoh tuners.
All this guitars come with “Made in America” case with exacting vintage and there will be only 167 units available. The prices have not been unveiled yet but I can imagine that will go from $5,000 to $7,000.
UPDATE (08.27.2008): My predictions we not right and these models are cheaper than I though. Meandean comments that the prices are $3,449 for the Hummingbird, $4,339 for the SJ-200 and $2,649 for the J-45.
