This beautiful guitar is in almost new condition save from some very faint pick marks on the pickguard.  Yes it does sound as good as it looks!


The SJ is our version of what is commonly called a small Jumbo. Although the 16inch lower bout is slightly wider than a dreadnought, and the sides almost as deep, thetight curve at the waist creates in a very different sound chamber. SJs, especiallyexamples in maple, typically have a more

pronounced midrange response when compared to a dreadnought, making them ideal candidates for a rounded cutaway. Players looking for the bass and overall volume of a large guitar, but with lots of treble clarity and midrange crunch, often find just what they need in the curvaceous SJ.
