We picked up this Gibson SJ-200 ELITE on Sunday, listed it Tuesday and it sold.Fingerstyle Guitar DVD Lessons great for Gibson J45 J200 Hummingbird.
Personally, I attribute to the c side of the gameplay much. I even tried a “clone”. Washburn 335 Never been happy with the neck. Dot the I found myself with a link provided now. This does not mean the Dot is all that much better in some ways, perhaps, but pleased t that “fit” how I like a neck. So I would say that I love Epi / Gibson neck, thinner. Your details are so subjective too.I always understand if I love playing guitar, regardless of type, it’ll sound better.
My History Of Gibson J-200 is what made me play an acoustic guitar. I tried the hummingbird and thought it looked a little dead air. The EJ other hand seemed alive and cavernous. It is a slighty longer scale length too -. 25 1/2 “24 3/4 against The action is very low and too easy to play, even with the big beefy neck Regarding solid against the top is laminated with. Both being poly, I do not think either one would be better than the other. C sides and back are laminated on both, so that the wood does not make much difference in the sound. These are the sizes that have the greatest effect on tones. They are both budget guitars. It is your ears to decide which one sounds and feels better. You might want to stand across the room and ask someone to read them so you can hear what others hear when you play. It might surprise you.
I’m not as concerned about the low humidity is with EJ because it is laminated. And with this high waist, which is a good thing, it does not split. This thing is bullet proof. I’ll add to the Masterbilt. They are amazing and should be secured better. All nuts and marrow. The Epiphone Masterbilt AJ500M you can get for about $ 350 used. Not less than likely. Otherwise, maybe you can find a Epiphone Texan reissue used which I think would be your best deal.They are all soild nut and bone.
The Gibson Hummingbird: Compared and Contrasted.Expensive guitar being out priced only by Gibson’s flagship instrument.
Filmography I’m just in my local Guitar Center and played each of these models. I was looking for a cheap guitar, I would leave it out of its case more than my larrivals. I thought the Dove and Hummingbird were OK, but I am pleasantly surprised by artist EJ-200. I do not think I wanted another Jumbo (Jumbo already have a Larrivee) but I could not get the Epi EJ-200 to my mind after I played. So I went back the next day and played it again, and I knew I had to do it, and it was a great value: easy to play, lots of delicious coffee, great price, and it looked fine also (natural finish). I know the top lam means it will not necessarily sound better as time goes on, but It sounds good, then I’m a happy camper with my new Gibson J 200 For Sale Ontario.
I changed the strings to a set of sunbeams (CD 12-54s) I had on hand It sounds sweet. Maybe one day I will upgrade the saddle to the bone, but for now I’m just very happy. The first time I saw that all new non-Masterbilt PPE where now made in Indonesia, I was surprised and a little disappointed u (I thought the China plant rose to speed). But after I played and inspected carefully, I am so impressed with its build quality I changed my attitude fast. Now I recommend it to anyone interested in this level of guitar.By Moreover, most EPI at Guitar Center had horrible strings (I mean think was corrosion and rough) and were very wrong. Yuck. Most plant configurations were surprisingly good, however, and the vendors were friendly and knowledgeable.
I always played electric bought ej thought it was OK then bought the 300, then bought a Washburn on stupid of the day from musician friend for half price, could not believe how much better and sounded Washburn Washburn played.The $ 150 now come with bone nut and saddle and top.Never of solid adjust the neck or crush the saddle, even on my Washburn J6.You can go heavy strings and the neck does not bend, so they must have a stronger neck.I have a Masterbilt Epiphone DR Rosewood is good.But person I play them like the sound of Washburn even the Masterbilt .
What tone do you like? A J200 has maple back, sides and neck, Along with the bigger jumbo body this gives a huge, bright sound.
Can I forget everything because he is strong, explodes like a jumbo and should be set up to play as easily as one of my Martins or Taylors. Taylor 315ce my jumbo is actually a little more balanced when the EPI is also strong, but lower oriented.I originally purchased for my camping, beach, drummer trip. I love it so much that I’m looking for something else now because I do not want to get out of the friend of my house.I just bought the Hummingbird Artist Ltd and is delighted with it. Of the entire list you might consider, think about the AJ-200, AJ-220 and the artist Hum Ltd. All good guitars if you get a store where they reasonably new chain ties on them so there is a fair chance to judge.
good call on the AJ200 – I had one for about 2 years (fell and broke her doll!) And we had a great sound and co you that ￡ 100 to teh time – solid top and solid construction throughout. This thread got me thinking. I had picked a beautiful Breedlove guitar poll the other day, but the configuration was impossible. Once I straightened the neck, the action was still so high that the seat would have required grinding down. It does not bother me to do this kind of work, but I will not do it on a new guitar, so I returned it. I showed them how strong he pulled around the 9th fret from the neck and technology even speculated that the neck could not be stuck in the right angle.
They are not the same model in stock to see if there was a difference, so I started looking again and decided Artist Epi Hummingbird Ltd. I mentioned before.We worked with 5 in stock to choose the best, not that any of them were actually so different from the old to the new strings. How to choose a radius of brown sun and brought home.Don’t you just love happy endings I have an Gibson J 200 and SJ 200 and ej300sce I thing they are pretty bad guitars sound with a massive $ 150 Washburn table are much better sound and easy to play.
Introduced in 1960, the Hummingbird was Gibson’s second-most expensive acoustic guitar, behind the Gibson J-200.
Hey, just registered today. I love the look of the Epi J200, Hummingbird and Dove. I love decorating. The dove seems to be the cheapest and seems potentially the best quality-price ratio (top mass, the top does not look like a thick finished pictures I see online). The J200 dissapoints a little because of the laminate “select spruce” (not bashing, but for the money a high solid Hummingbird seems to be better value, or dove). I just want to know what are some of your opinions or experiences. I read through many old posts on this site, but I want an opinion on the current ENP.
Welcome! You seem to have done a bit of research, but here are a few opinions: hbird vs dove dove maple back and c tees, hbird a mahogany if hbird will be a little less chimey. my hummingbird darkened a bit since I’ve had. both have solid tops, but the finish is quite thick at times, so you never know what is going to come laminate it.Gibson J 200 Tune O Matic, but not the worst. some people seem to love them. I still think the sound is unbalanced, but YMMV. if you want a solid body guitar with a thin finish, see masterbilts.
You can usually get a used one in a similar price range to the above guitars. I love them, but I felt a little too thin for my preferences, because I wanted a bit of a drummer who resist shock and scrapes.I have one month EJ-200 in natural finish. I know what the specs say about it being rolled and everything A. I know I’m not supposed to expect much of a guitar to two hundred dollars. I know it should not improve with age.
Seriously though I’ve never played a hummingbird but I’ve played lots of J-200’s and I love them, my favorite Gibson acoustic by far.
You described the J-200 as bold, bright, large and extensive survey and rooted to the spot. That’s the sound of a J-200 well. And I agree with you, it is not good for the overall music because it usually covers other sound if they are not a J-200. Happened to my last concert guitarist Taylor 412ce that I used one and was drowned in the mix.I’ll be tested tomorrow Gibson Hummingbird. I will decide between the hummingbird and Taylor K22 (full body KOA) and see the difference. Played the K22 today and boy did it sound sweet. Almost like a J-200 but with much sharper definition, and a very small guitar valid cut. Tested c Te c Te with a J-200 Custom Montana Gold and sad to say the K22 won handily. But I’m always a sucker for Gibson.
This was the situation I’m back in January. It came down to these two guitars. I went with the 200 Hummingbird.The is amazing, and their rise and punch It is comparable, but at the end of the day Hummingbird hottest sounds and how I think sounds more acoustic sound. That, understand that my next guitar will be a Gibson J 200 Or Martin, but I’m a fan Hummingbird. I played for 4 years now. I decided to take a break and take another acoustic. I want a bit retains the J-200 because it is one of my most prized possessions.
I’ve played a few of K22 and really liked the sound. Not to mention the Koa guitars are just beautiful! My original # 1 guitar is my 1993 Taylor 612C that, because of the maple will always cut through a mix with a strong Gibson … (I should know, I have an advanced Jumbo too and playing with my boyfriend who loves my AJ as much as his Martin D28, my Taylor is still shining.) I attribute it to be a 15 years old guitar which opened beautifully. Elves guitar in the factory the day my Taylor was made for overtime worked as Taylor is the best I’ve ever played. Personally, I really like having different guitars for different songs and tones. I would not give one of them, but I do not want either a second guitar that sounds exactly like my original guitar. I say, Viva la difference. By having other sound choice, you will not play your J-200 all the time and always give him a break.
Hi, I was thinking of getting another Gibson acoustic as I don’t want to use my custom historic 60’s J-200 too much.
I was thinking of doing another acoustic Gibson that I do not want to use my usual historical 60 J-200 too. And I want something new but I’m a sucker for J-200. Maybe you guys can make me change mind.In your opinion, who is the best Gibson J-200 or a Gibson Hummingbird I played both and like both, but has acquired the SJ200 Modern Classic and it is almost the only sound I take more. I highly recommend to anyone. You can not go wrong with this guitar. Right out of the box you, it is a dream come true.
The Gibson J 200 Or Hummingbird is bold, bright, big wide survey, it is an excellent accompaniment for a singer with a strong voice, but could drown a singer with a voice tone of Meeker. It is also sounding very distinctive and does not mix exceptionally well with other acoustic guitars if you work together. As you have one, you know they are long scale, which means more volume and break in tone.The Hummingbird is warm, subtle, soft and velvety / honey toned in her voice. It makes an excellent vocal accompaniment for any singer, and performs exceptionally well in working together.
It is a shorter scale mite less string tension, which means that it is easier on the hand chording and a little softer sounding, with a key volume.I have less overall at a time, and I would not part either. I use my SJ200 Modern Classic for solo work, and my Hummingbird Modern Classic for all my work group, I play in an acoustic trio and the bird is a dream for that.I you recommend a hummingbird net … but try a few before you, but to see if you like them in person. Also, try a dove, which is halfway inbetween a bird and your loved J200-dreadnought, but maple back and c sides and long scale. We have one of them in the band too, which is nice. The signature model Sheryl Crow is investigating too. Tell us how you get on!
I’ve come across a Gibson J200 Custom Mystic Rosewood that looks it could be pretty cool.I’ve never been able to play a J200 so that worries me a little bit.They had it listed at 5k so it was out of my price point.
I mentioned in another post that last year I bought a 618fe Taylor, Gibson Hummingbird and Gibson AJ. I look possible by adding more to the team. I came across a Gibson J-200 Custom Antique Natural looks like it could be pretty cool. Whenever I went to GC I also always like the Martin D41, I thought every time I bought a guitar, but have never pulled the trigger. I’ve never been able to play a J200 which concerns me a bit. Do you think I’d be smarter to go with the Martin because it is another brand for me or would the Custom J200 be smarter option
I also think that the Gibson SJ-200 Mystic Rosewood guitar is a very, very cool. It`s very top of my wish list! Martin is also very good, you really need to play both well s R. Here`sa clip review of Gibson.I loooooove Gibson, but I would not buy one without playing first. This would be true for any purpose guitar top of any manufacturer. Each instrument has its own voice. If you can not play the J-200, then get Martin. Or better yet, try a bunch of Jumbo from a group of decision makers not limited to one or two brands.
In your situation, I’d probably go for Martin to add diversity to your arsenal. Although both the Hummingbird and dreads are, they are very different versions of this size and design. But ultimately, it will depend on the fa On which each individual guitar sounded. A beautiful SJ-200 (I am one) can certainly be a rewarding guitar but May a beautiful 40-series Martin. I guess what you find most special of Gibson (Gibson take on that distinctive guitar sound), you have two you have now. Yes, the SJ-200 is different from an animal of one of these. But there is a D-41 and you might as well be an example of what Martin tone of your group, assuming that available is a good thing. But obviously, this is just the opinion of one person.

The man in the picture a couple of posts above Country Music Hall of Famer Little Jimmy Dickens.Here sings What the bird of paradise fly nose with his J-200 is considered .JD CW OK! So I do know a few songs from Western countries. Learn to cross that to-do list. The most fun I’ve had lately is lugging my J-200 to a mountain hut and play for an hour of songs songs from John in a mountain setting for a group of Aussie women in town for the week John Denver any explosion that was – they sang, knew all the words, so the pressure was off.
The J-200 was perfect for the songs strong enough to throw in the mountains. Mine is maple, wondering now if a guy needs to add a Rosewood J-200 The answer is s R be, yes, why not If you pla t does not start on raggin’n Tater. He is in his 90s and is largely country music history.He was close friends with Hank Sr. and tells the story when he was on a flight with Hank and asked him to write a song for him.While on the plane, Hank wrote a song, looked and told him he was too good to give away. Hank gave him the nickname Tater.
You can not beat this thing with a stick. I’m waiting for the next patch of clear warm weather so I can do a little pickin up the sun on one of the hills by the beach front. FMA … thank you for the info on Jimmy Dickens. The name is familiar, but his music Conna T not me. I did not come in country music until the days of Merle, Waylon and Willie, which I think would be a few years later on road.You forgot the punchline. Hank Sr. wrote the song then refused to Tater was a little dittie called Hey Good Lookin ‘Whatcha Got Cookin’ I remember this song.
Both koa and mystic rosewood tonewoods, when pared with the robust, large-bodied SJ-200 design and the upgraded custom appointments.
I think to make me a custom Gibson J 200 NA China Mystic Rosewood. Supposedly only 20 of them were made What are people’s opinions of them I think they are beautiful with all of the lining of the abalone. Does anyone here have one, if so can you describe the tone Would it be a good compliment to my AJ and Hummingbird or are they redundant. I have actually two at the moment: a natural and a sunbeam. (My wife would never let me .out of the house with a credit card charge.) Tone-wise, they are essentially the same as the measure
gibson j-200 super jumbo standard acoustic-electric guitar has the normal Indian rosewood. In fact, the Mystic is just a variation.Of Indian rosewood so the tone should be the same. A dealer described as Indian Mystic.
“Stump wood Because it comes stumps Indian rosewood. Whether true.or is not discussion. It seems that unique.A rosewood Super Jumbo is about as far as you can get from a hummingbird and is closer to the AJ. If you are looking for something different tone wise, I would consider a Super Jumbo maple. Tone.I much brighter and have a standard measuring timber pink. The rosewood is one of, if not the favorite of my wife calls my herd.My glitter guitar.
People found to be good guitars in search of gibson j-200 sunburst. People think they have a real country western atmosphere to them To each his own. I just like the tone and feel of the body.Plus Super Jumbo, I do not have a hat or boots even though I live near Dallas. I have the boots, I have the hat, I have the guitar. But I do not think I know any western country songs.I had often avoided the J-200 because of the appearance pleased t outish hold until I really got a chance to play, now he is in my stable. Do you play a lot of music John Denver Dan I think a lot of his music would be considered under the category of Western countries, despite the fact that he did not dress much like the man in the picture a couple of posts above.

Since its first appearance in 1937, Gibson J-200 set a standard others have been trying to match ever since. Today, nearly 71 years later, the legacy of Gibson’s “King of the Flat-tops” lives in the new J-200 Standard. When introduced in 1930, the gibson j-200 reissue immediately filled a need for a more balanced and powerful sound deeper,. It gave purveyors of the new American music scene of the 1930s, a reliable well built instrument, capable of projecting the sound of the guitar well beyond any other acoustic on the market-a fact that still holds true today . It is simply the world’s most famous acoustic guitar, and certainly one of the most popular, as evidenced by the list of players who have made it their primary acoustic instrument, among them Ray Whitley, Emmylou Harris, Roy Rogers, Gene Autry, Gram Parsons, and Pete Townshend.
