The Gibson Pete Townshend SJ-200 Signature  was introduced in 2004 as part of the Gibson Artist Series acoustic guitar and hand made in Bozeman, Montana.  This signature model is based on the 1960s Gibson J-200 (although the signature model is called "SJ-200") Townshend used to compose “Pinball Wizard” &  “Won’t Get Fooled Again.” Although based on the vintage J-200, this signature model has several newer features (like the L.R. Baggs Element Active Acoustic Pickup System). Each has a Townshend signature inlaid at the end of the fingerboard and the first 50 of these were hand signed by Pete himself.
