This custom 2000 Gibson SJ-200 is from Acoustic Guitar magazine’s 10th Anniversary Collection. In celebration of our 30th anniversary in 2020, we’re putting our collection up for auction from April 20 through May 10, giving you the opportunity to bid on a piece of guitar history and support guitar education at the same time.

50% of the net proceeds of this auction will be donated to the Bill Collings Memorial Fund in support of guitar education in public schools and public programs. Plus, we’ll contribute $5 to the Collings Fund in the name of every bidder, whether they win at auction or not.


The estimated value range for the Gibson SJ-200 is $5,200 to $7,800. What makes it special? The elaborate abalone vine inlay in the fingerboard and the abalone framing the entire body. Inspired by an earlier custom order, the fingerboard design was adapted for this anniversary guitar.
