Description

A powerhouse Olson SJ! This gorgeous 1999 classic in Indian Rosewood & Cedar plays like butter, and likes to be played. We see a lot of Olsons come through our shop that maybe haven’t seen a lot of play time, so it’s a special treat when one comes in that’s obviously not rested on its laurels. This Olson has been extensively played in in the past 20 years, and it sounds oh so alive.

Now it’s your turn to put music into this guitar and share with the universe. Structurally perfect Indian Rosewood and Cedar for the classic combination.
