Gibson Unveils Signature Tom Petty SJ-200 Wildflower Guitar

Gibson unveiled a new limited edition version of Tom Petty‘s beloved SJ-200 Wildflower acoustic guitar in honor of the late artist’s beloved album, Wildflowers.

The original SJ-200 Wildflower was a one-off that was built exclusively for Petty during the Wildflowers era in the 1990s.

The new guitar, priced at $9,999, will have all the features of Petty’s original classic SJ-200 ornamentation.

The 127 year-old musical instrument manufacturer said it will make only 100 pieces of the signature guitar handcrafted at the Gibson Acoustic Custom Shop in Bozeman, Montana.

Both solo and with his band, the world-renowned music icon created some of the most beloved and enduring music of the rock era.

Adria Petty, the daughter of the lead vocalist and guitarist of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, said, “It is so incredible to see the SJ-200 design our Dad worked on so long ago, lovingly brought to fruition with his long-time guitar tech and friend Alan Weidel and the craftsmen and women at Gibson guitars.”
