Gibson J200 “Elvis Presley”

Modelled on his personalised J200 (the original is on display at the Graceland complex in Memphis) this guitar has been played by Scotty Moore!

It features the King’s name (in full – as if there’s any doubt) inlaid on the fretboard, and the weird scratch plate design.

I’m a big fan of J200’s, with six in the collection at one point. The first one I bought is now owned by my friend, Nick, a natural 2001 model. Still in the collection are: Elvis, Pete Townshend, Ron Wood, an antique natural electro and a limited Koa backed model. All gorgeous!
