he King of Rock and Roll's King of the Flat-Tops
Elvis Presley, the King of Rock and Roll, was an owner and frequent user of multiple Gibson SJ-200 acoustic guitars - the "King of the Flat-Tops." The new Gibson Elvis SJ-200 is based on a guitar that was given to Elvis as a gift at a recording session at RCA Studio B in Nashville in the mid-1960s. He used the guitar for numerous live performances. Elvis gave it to his aide and close friend Marty Lacker at Graceland in 1976. The Elvis SJ-200 features a maple back, sides, and neck, as well as a Sitka spruce top. It also has all of the attractive SJ-200 touches, including mother of pearl inlays, and the iconic Moustache™ bridge and graduated crown inlays, and comes equipped with an LR Baggs VTC under-saddle pickup. A hardshell case is included.
