First teased during the virtual Believe in Music show in January, Gibson has detailed and launched its new Tom Petty SJ-200 Wildflower acoustic guitar.

Though the original SJ-200 Wildflower was a one-off custom model Gibson made for Petty in the early 90s – around the time of his classic solo album, Wildflowers – this ornate acoustic is based on Petty's own, original SJ-200, and will be limited to just 100 examples, each hand-built in the company's Acoustic Custom Shop in Bozeman, Montana.
