J1 DOUBLE CUT

Our double cutaway J1 has been designed not only for its good looks but also for the excellent access it gives to the top frets. A premium grade carved maple top on a chambered mahogany body gives this guitar amazing natural sustain and resonance while keeping it light. The neck is beautifully hand carved from one piece of quarter sawn mahogany, creating a very stable neck with a great feel. For the 24 fret fingerboard, the customer can choose either rosewood for it's warm tone, or ebony for it's slightly brighter response and durability. 

Various 'string-thru' bridge options are available from a Hipshot fixed bridge to a Kluson tuneomatic with string ferrules or go for a top strung bridge with a Pigtail wraparound or a Kluson tuneomatic with stopbar. Sperzel Solid-Pro tuners guarantee fine tuning and smooth operation. The guitar is fitted with high quality US made CTS pots, Switchcraft toggle switch and a pull/push tone pot for coil splitting. A 50’s wiring scheme is used in all our guitars as we have found that it minimises treble loss when rolling back the volume.

Bare Knuckle scatter wound pickups are fitted as standard with the 'Rebel Yell' humbucker set chosen for its organic voice and impact; perfect for any player wanting a progressive humbucker which is rich in harmonic overtones and wide pick dynamics. Pickups are mounted by traditional rings or choose the Case 'Invisible' mounting system that connects the pickups directly to the body for a more positive vibration tranfer.
