Gibson SJ-250 Monarch
Released January, 2010
The Pros:Attention to detail is unparalleled - bridge and inlay patterns are masterfully constructed. Intonation is steady and well-seated - indicates hands-on craftsmanship. Very rare - limited edition of six models.
The Cons:Extremely expensive - intended as more of a collector's model.
The Gibson SJ-250 Monarch is the most expensive guitar in the super jumbo line. It is fifteen thousand dollars more expensive than the next expensive Gibson guitar. It is built with some of the same features at the rest of the members in the line, including a double-ring rosette with a secondary ring made of three-ply binding and a main ring with seven-ply binding.
