    Educate me on the mid 90s j200ís?

    Hello.
    Anyone know how mid 90s j200 differ from other years? Are they in general a good example of this style guitar? Did they have a nitro finish? Do they now? Weíre they braced differently? How do they compare to the vintage ones? Braced differently? Are they all maple back and sides? I had a gibson acoustic from somewhere back than and it was totally dull. It had a thick finish and it just seems like it didnít let the instrument breath.

    You should post these questions in The Other Gibsons area, which is the correct place for this subject.
    You'll likely get more responses from better informed people on the subject.

    The one I owned was great, maple back & sides .
    Ive never confused owning a bunch of high end gear with being some kind of a guitar player I'm a hack and I love guitars !

    The myth :The most disturbing thing about buying a fake Les Paul is how my research after the purchase is received by Forum members ??? 2020

    The Myth: Neat wiring layouts always equate to great-sounding amps.

    The Myth: If I would have lived with MOM & mooched till I was 48 I would play like Clapton !
    Think about it
    won't you ...... Please !

    The '95 I have currently on sale here sounds very full and has maple back and sides. Neck is a bit chunkier than the 2015 I had before, but still very comfortable.
    Soundwise I like it better than the newer ones, but that may be just the wood on the newer ones still not having been played as much.
    I haven't played a 90s J200 I didn't like.
