Kevin Pederson has been building custom guitars since 1996 and has more recently stepped into the fine acoustic market. And boy are we glad he did! The beautifully quartered, chocolate East Indian Rosewood and Master Grade Bearclaw Sitka Spruce top are just the tip of the iceberg on this custom Modified SJ. It's easy to see why this guitar made a stir at the Healdsburg Guitar Festival: the custom rosette design, gorgeous segmented spalted maple binding, tasteful carbon burst top, unique soundports, and custom inlay make this one a museum quality instrument. Add to that Kevin's customized saddles and adjustable neck and you have a guitar that doesn't need saddle adjustments. Any action changes can be made by moving the neck up or down, saving you from time consuming and frustrating saddle height adjustments. But when you play it, it gets even better. Position changes are a breeze thanks to the semi-hemispheric fret ends, and Kevin has adapted the Smallman-style bracing to give this one pianistic note separation and great tonal balance and clarity make this one a must have for any collector.

"I have been waiting to get this Pederson in the shop since I got to play it at Healdsburg. Kevin has long been known for his custom electrics, but he has brought all his chops and more to this new Modified SJ. Not only does it have the classic aesthetic that Kevin is so well known for, it has a quick and reactive voice that caught me right from the start. Anything you play comes through crisp and clear, and it has a great balance throughout its range. It's just a joy to hold and play." - Paul Heumiller
"This guitar is a work of art with wood marquetry adorning almost every surface. If you are looking for something different that stands out in the crowd take a look at this one. " - Al Petteway
