Description:
An icon, this guy and you'd better believe it. As you may already know, Pete Townshend wrote most of the Who's hits on an acoustic guitar with his favorite being a 1968 J-200 he purchased from Manny's Music in NYC. The SJ-200 that you now see is a tribute to that guitar and it carries some mighty impressive features. If I am not mistaken, Gibson only made 100 of these and of the 100, only the first 50 were hand- signed by Pete. I know, I know- you guys may be thinking we are charging a premium because of the signature, but really really, we had to pony up for this guitar in a serious way. Unlike some rock stars, Pete's signature is somewhat hard to come by. With its rounded edge fretboard, this guitar is a pure pleasure to play and as you may know, it comes stock with an L.R.Baggs acoustic pickup that's nothing short of jaw- dropping. I just got through watching Pete on the David Letterman show in '93 performing "Pinball Wizard" and as he closed the song, he said "Let's do something for the world!" and proceeded to smash his J-200 to bits.

This is a serious piece, intended especially for the serious Who fan. Of course, it's in collector quality condition and although there is a letter that came with the guitar stating that it was one of the very first of the run, production of these guitars began in March, 2004 and this guitar left the factory in December of '04. The serial number appears to indicate that this instrument is #48 of the first 50 guitars made. so my suspicions are that the letter is a copy, but who knows- anything could happen, right? Man, you can never tell what the elves in the Gibson factory are doing at any given time, so since the letter came wth the guitar, we're going to include it. That's it- there's no funny story this time because this is an all business piece. Gonna be hard to find these in the near future so make the call to the 'Elkcave today. Life is short, so enjoy your experiences...
