The world-famous SJ-200 is known as the “King of the Flat-Tops,” and It’s been the choice of countless legends, from singing cowboys to country, folk, and rock icons, right up to some of today’s most popular artists.

This impressive guitar features a thermally aged solid Sitka spruce top supported by scalloped X-bracing, solid figured maple back and sides, and a flame maple neck with a C-profile, laurel fretboard, and graduated crown mother of pearl inlays.
