The most striking feature of this 1958 Gibson J-200 is its unusual sunburst finish, which lacks the dark shading typically seen along the edges of the guitar?s lower bout. The back, however, has the usual dark shading surrounding its entire perimeter. The rosewood moustache bridge is also lighter than usual, which suggests that this guitar experienced prolonged exposure to sunlight, but oddly only on the front below the soundhole. It?s also possible that this guitar exhibits workmanship and materials variations occasionally seen in Gibson instruments from this period.
