A very rare pre-war Gibson SJ-200 with the desirable East Indian Rosewood back and sides is to sell at Guernsey's April 3. Gibson made only about 100 rosewood SJ-200 guitars before the maple version went into production, so in addition to being very desirable for the tonal qualities of its rosewood back and sides it's also quite collectible due to its rarity. It once belonged to guitarist Stephen Stills, best known for his work with Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. Estimate: $600,000-650,000.
