Gibson Unveils New Orianthi Signature SJ-200 Acoustic Guitar
The ornate, Cherry-finished acoustic features an ES-345 neck and a custom-voiced LR Baggs pickup system.
Gibson has joined forces with Orianthi to create a new acoustic guitar, the Orianthi SJ-200.
First teased back in January, this unique SJ-200 features a AAA Sitka spruce top, a flamed maple back, and an ebony fingerboard with lotus neck inlays. Unusually, the signature SJ-200 features a fast-playing ES-345 neck.
Sonically, the acoustic is outfitted with an LR Baggs Orianthi pickup system boasting soundhole-mounted controls, while additional appointments include a mother-of-pearl “O” symbol on the headstock and gold Grover Keystone tuners.
The Gibson Orianthi signature SJ-200 acoustic is available now – in a Cherry nitrocellulose lacquer finish – for $5,499.
