Description

The Olson party continues to grow! We’ve now taken on a 1993 SJ non-cutaway with additional MOP and Abalone appointments. Indian Rosewood back and sides with the classic Cedar top, this Olson SJ is 100% James Olson-James Taylor tone. This is a particularly well preserved example of Jim’s work from the early 90s, one of our favorite Olson periods, and comes wrapped up in the tweed hardshell case to seal the deal.

Another incredible Olson from the early 1990s, this one is in stellar shape and has the clear, chimey trebles that have made Jim's guitars so famous. I also like the round, warm bass response. Together they come together for a primo fingerstyle machine.
