An astonishgly good, woody, resonant thinline semi

DAVE BURRLUCK - GUITARIST MAGAZINE

J25 SEMI-HOLLOW

With a 14.25" width, the J25 is slightly smaller than our 15" wide J35 model 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 is made from exquisite, figured maple veneers with the back and sides, brazilian mahogany veneers all 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; you can choose from either a vintage-style Kluson tuneomatic bridge with a lightweight Kluson stop bar or a lightweight Pigtail wraparound bridge. Sperzel Solid-Pro tuners or Grover deluxe tuners can be specified both guaranteeing fine tuning and smooth operation. High quality CTS pots, Switchcraft pickup selector switch and a 50’s wiring scheme is used 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.
