Description

Trebles have haunting overtones, very bell like and clear. Paired up with a warm midrange and bottom end thanks to the Redwood top, and throw in a few years’ music to make it sing, and the result is this wide open fingerstyle GA-C from Jason Simpson. This beauty comes to us from 2005 and has opened up handsomely, is trimmed out with Bloodwood appointments to set off the Ziricote body and Redwood top, and is outfitted with a B-Band pickup system to carry you into amplified territory. All wrapped up in a Cedar Creek case.

I feel as though I, along with Martin Simpson, discovered Jason Simpson and his guitars all those years ago. Jason came and met us at a weekend guitar masterclass we were giving and showed us his instruments, and Martin and I were both extremely impressed. Fast forward to today and Jason is well loved for his beautiful instruments.
 
I love the trebles on this one. Sweet and round, with great overtones. Redwood for warmth, and Ziricote for clarity, can’t go wrong!
