Really, can you get much more gorgeous than this? We're talking about a masterpiece from one of America's master builders, a 2009 Olson SJ in Brazilian Rosewood and Cedar. Adorned with striking blue-green Abalone across the headstock, fretboard, body, and rosette (right down to the Fossilized Ivory bridge pins and vine inlay), and voiced with Jim's signature sound, this guitar makes perfection seem possible.

Not only is the Brazilian Rosewood of the highest calibre and the fit and finish flawless, but this SJ powerfully demonstrates the pinnacle of that classic Olson sound--crystal bell trebles, sonorous basses, glass-smooth mids that hang in the air like confetti. Playability is so smooth as to be effortless, like feathers beneath your fingertips. In altered tunings this Olson really opens up and the Cedar warmth smooths the note separation. If more guitars were built this wonderfully, the guitar world would be so much the better for it.

2009 Olson SJ -  Acoustic Guitar Player Reviews

Player Reviews:

"Man! It's exciting just to look at, let alone play this gem by Jim Olson. You can't find Brazilian of this quality hardly at all any more, and Jim's voicing work makes this one of the most responsive and smooth Olsons I've played, and I've played a lot of Olsons." - Paul Heumiller

"A beautiful instrument in every way. Great playability, great tone, great looks, and very collectible." - Al Petteway
