Description

Pure glass from trebles to bass. The voice mixes up handsomely across the registers, lots of velvet riches from note to note. And this is hardly surprising, coming from a 2010 Olson SJ Cutaway dressed up with extensive vine inlays and Brazilian Rosewood body plus Cedar top. The voice has opened up heaps since 2010; the L.R. Baggs Anthem pickup sounds great to boot. Jim's guitars are exceptionally collectible, and the added Abalone appointments further set this one apart from the crowd.

I have been a fan of James Olson instruments forever. Of course we have all heard them on the albums of James Taylor and Phil Keaggy and so many others, but I have heard them so many times in the hands of David Wilcox and Al Petteway that I feel like I have a special affection for the sound. This one from 2010 is very full and rich in addition to having the sparkle we all love!
 
I love the way the notes mix up so smoothly. Very lush and inviting, the perfect kind of darkness to the lower mids to really fill out the voice.
