The J1 displays not only a commitment to top-quality materials and tone, but a keen eye for aesthetics, balancing lines and curves to perfection

David Greeves - GUITAR BUYER MAGAZINE

J1 CLASSIC

A carved premium grade maple top on a chambered mahogany body, gives this guitar an 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. The fingerboard has slightly rolled edges with a choice of either rosewood for it's warm tone, or ebony for it's slightly brighter response and durability. Hand applied wood stains enhance the highly figured maple top to create a guitar that looks every bit as good as it sounds. 

All our hardware is high quality and made in the US with a choice of bridges - Hipshot fixed, lightweight Pigtail wraparound bridge or a vintage-style Kluson tuneomatic bridge with a lightweight stop bar. Sperzel Soli-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 unpotted humbuckers are fitted as standard with a 'Mule' humbucker in the neck position for its outstanding clarity, extended dynamic range and unmistakable vintage character. A 'Riff Raff' pickup is selected in the bridge position for plenty of snap and a classic range of organic, clean and driven tones. Pickups are mounted by traditional rings or choose the Case 'Invisible' mounting system that connects the pickup directly to the body for a more positive vibration transfer.
