Description

This Applegate is a fingerstyle guitar, through and through. We love Brian’s work, and have happily sold his guitars for years, so when this 2005 SJ came along we were eager to represent it. Walnut back and sides, Redwood top, and Brian’s flawless Abalone appointments and falling leaf fretboard inlays. If you prefer a slim neck, this Applegate will be a perfect fit. The setup is slick and easy; makes deft fretwork for the left hand.
The voice is lush, round, and intimate. We loved cozying up with this guitar for open tunings. The treble strings have a sweet, luscious presence with extra warmth from the Redwood top. This SJ weighs in just shy of four pounds. You hardly notice it’s in your lap.
We love the smooth response and clarity of this 2005 Applegate SJ, and we think you will too.

One of my very favorite pairings is Walnut and Redwood. The warmth and depth of a Redwood top adds to the punch and immediacy of the Walnut body. This guitar inspired me to play both notes that lingered as well as fast runs. It has the ability to make you want to play and that’s a rare and beautiful thing.
 
Smooth string energy, lots of color and dynamic range. I appreciate how many gears Brian's baked into the top; this SJ is equally at home with a light touch or a more aggressive attack. The tonewoods are top notch, and the body is bound in lovely dark Koa to set off the Walnut back and sides and Redwood top.
