This 1999 Gibson J-200 Elite is a gorgeous specimen.  Gibson certainly saved the best woods for this limited edition of 40 pieces.  Check out the back and sides on this beauty!  The top is the highest quality spruce, as is the inlay material.

The guitar is simply captivating in person, but it also plays superbly and sounds so good.  The bracing is scalloped, providing lighter construction than most J-200s, adding to the great tone of the guitar.

There is some light finish checking - see the pictures for details.  

A Trance Audio pickup system was professionally installed.

The bridge has been re-glued at some point prior to our ownership of the guitar.  The work was professionally done.  There is visual evidence of the work - see the pics.

The original case is included.
