Wow! What a guitar! In comparing it to my Taylor LM-50-514-CE (piece 22 of 50) and my Gibson L4-A this baby simply kicks their respective butts in term of sound, ease of play and overall eye candy! Distinctively Gibson! Craftsmen built in Montana and of course a rich history makes the Gibson J-200 a solid investment! I am very pleased and thought this could be of value to anyone considering the purchase of a higher end accoustic.

I also own a Taylor T5-C1 Maple Tobacco Sunburst, a Gibson LP Studio, a Marlique Rhino Signature, a Yamaha Pacifica and 2 Takamine electric accoustics hence a pretty good judge of what makes for a quality sound and overall workmanship qualities of a guitar.

Goes without saying I am a big fan of both Gibson and Taylor!

Cheers,

Pat

Purchased at..

Lauzon Music Centre in Ottawa. I buy my Taylors and Gibson's from them. Their Luthier is Factory trained both for Taylors and Gibsons. I think they are one of the largest guitar ratailers in Canada?

The J200 is a great great guitar. Thats the one I want someday.:food-smiley-004: Cograts. How was the setup from the store, or did they set it up for you? Any chance of a pic.? is it the natural Spruce w/Maple?
