The SG100 / SG200 / SG250 series, was Gibsons early seventies entry level range. Brand new in mid 1971, they were to fill the role held previously by the the Gibson Melody Maker. Like the Melody Maker they were SG shaped, with single coil pickups, though alder bodied with maple necks.
The SG-200 was never shown in a US Gibson catalogue.
The majority of SG-200 production was in 1971. By the summer NAMM show of 1972, Gibson had replaced the SG-200 in it's price lists with a new SG model, the SG-II.
