J2 SEMI-hollow ARCHTOP

The J2 semi-hollow archtop model is slightly smaller than our J3 semi and is extremely well balanced on the strap. The guitar employs a traditional semi-hollow construction of a laminated body with a mahogany centre block and hand carved spruce fillets between the two. The semi-hollow body creates a resonant, responsive tone, while the centre block maximises sustain and keeps feedback to a minimum. The top, back and sides are made from exquisite, figured maple veneers and finished in a stunning sunburst. The neck is beautifully hand carved from one piece of quarter sawn mahogany, creating a very stable neck with a great feel. There is a choice of fingerboard, either rosewood for it's warm tone, or ebony for it's slightly brighter response and durability. 

All hardware is high quality and made in the US and includes a vintage-style Kluson tuneomatic bridge with a lightweight Kluson stop bar. Grover deluxe tuners guarantee fine tuning and smooth operation. High quality CTS pots and Switchcraft components are used together with a 50’s wiring scheme to minimise treble loss when rolling back the volume. 

Hand wound Bare Knuckle unpotted humbuckers are fitted as standard with 'Mule' humbuckers chosen for their outstanding clarity, extended dynamic range and unmistakable vintage character.
