Gibson 1996 Elvis Presley J-200

"Gibson 1996 Elvis Presley J-200-Natural

Elvis bought his J-200 in 1956. He used it during his performance of 'Teddy Bear' in the film Loving You. It is reported to have been his favorite guitar.

Gibson later inlaid his name in pearl on the fingerboard and mounted a pickguard designed by Elvis himself, and this reconditioned version was used for the Las Vegas shows of the early 70's.

Rick uses Elvis Presley Signature strings to match the exact type used by The King on his example from the limited edition of 250 units."
