Gibson has forever inscribed its name in the guitar pantheon, from jazz and rock to blues and metal. Founded in 1894 by Orville H. Gibson in Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA, the company revolutionized the guitar world with technical and aesthetic innovations such as humbuckers and the Flying V, Explorer and Firebird shapes. With ambassadors ranging from Charlie Christian to Slash, Tommi Iommi and, of course, Lester Polfus, Gibson has stood the test of time and musical styles, establishing itself as an essential brand for electric and acoustic guitars.

Tom Murphy and his team create each Murphy Lab guitar in the Gibson Custom Shop in Nashville, Tennessee, using the most sophisticated tools and technologies. Each instrument is handcrafted and finished with techniques that produce the most authentic aging impressions, and thus features the character, sound and feel that elevated the original models to iconic status.

The Gibson SJ-200, introduced in 1937, reached its peak in 1957 with improvements to its bold design and rich tone. Its large size, ornate inlays and distinctive bridge made it a favorite among musicians of all genres. From country to rock, the SJ-200 became iconic, in the hands of legends such as Hank Williams and Elvis Presley, leaving an indelible mark on music history.

Featuring all the SJ-200's signature details, including multi-tracked binding on the body, neck and headstock, a headstock crest, a classic inlaid "mustache" bridge, and a large 1950s floral-themed pickguard, the Gibson Custom Shop SJ-200 57 Vintage Sunburst Murphy Lab Light Aged exudes undeniable vintage charm and authenticity. Built with an imposing Super Jumbo maple body for back and sides, this guitar offers unrivalled projection and a balanced sound throughout the range thanks to its heat-aged Sitka spruce top. And here we've selected a superb one, perfect in every way.

Its maple neck, carved in a vintage "Historic" profile, offers absolutely classic playing comfort, and the luxurious rosewood fingerboard and graduated inlays add a touch of refinement to the whole. The result of painstaking work in Gibson's Murphy Lab, this guitar accurately embodies the natural wear and vintage aesthetic of this iconic instrument in every detail and aesthetic nuance. Whether you're strumming chords or fingerpicking melodies, this SJ-200 Murphy Lab will please you as much as it pleased us: it's one of the biggest-sounding acoustic guitars around!
