Gibson SJ-100
The Gibson SJ-100 is a 'super jumbo' style acoustic guitar with a vintage look and feel. The guitar isn't an acoustic/electric, so there aren't any setting controls or pick ups. The neck of the guitar is made out of mahogany, the fretboard is made up of Indian rosewood, while the rest of the guitar is made up of a combination of premium spruce and bubinga.

UTILIZATION

The overall feel and accessibility of the Gibson SJ-100 is beyond outstanding. The SJ-100 is one of the easiest to play guitars that I've used that I can think of. The neck is fluid and it is easy to access notes all across the fretboard without a problem at all. The guitar is pretty big in general, as the body type is super jumbo, although this doesn't really add to the weight as it isn't all that heavy. The SJ-100 definitely has a classic look to it, with an overall beautiful looking design and make up. Getting a good sound is a lot easier than it is on most guitars.

SOUNDS

The overall tone of the Gibson SJ-100 can be described as being extremely full bodied. It has a round quality to it that is emphasized by the large body. The sound of the guitar can easily fill a room, and it sounds awesome on recordings as well. I don't think that it has the type of sound that will favor one genre over another, but I will say that I have found it to sound great for folk and country type of tunes. However, I'm sure that it would fit in well in just about any context, as it is overall simply a great sounding instrument.

OVERALL OPINION

The Gibson SJ-100 definitely fits right in with Gibson's high end of acoustic guitar, which are some of the best being made today in my opinion. I can't get enough of the SJ-100, as everything ranging from the feel to the sound to the look is beyond great for my liking. The SJ-100 of course isn't the cheapest guitar out there, as it is really designed for professionals, but it also isn't the most expensive by a long shot. If you're looking to purchase a jumbo style acoustic guitar for any sort of purpose, I'd definitely recommend the Gibson SJ-100 without hesitation.

bartolosa's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" delighted to use this guitar"

Gibson SJ-100
the handle is made of Indian rosewood,

easy to play even in the top of the handle
the guitar comes from usa

UTILIZATION

yes the handle is very pleasant
ergonomics is very good despite the odds super jumbo is not tiring and it does not weigh

access to the treble is relatively easy and you get a great sound over it soone as well as vacuum connected ..
any agreement sounds really good ideal to accompany singing

SOUNDS

I play with an amp AER (60w) it's going very well with
the sound is nice, very nice in the midrange and treble, bass are round

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 2 years and I am more content
this is a guitar that improves with age

I tried other models before
and that is the most that I have seduced her, hand-held, and the handle makes for interesting sounds

the value for money is acceptable (of course I would prefer to pay less ... but I do not regret my purchase was revealed paying over time)
