Description

This 2012 Olson SJ is a note-for-note match to the James Taylor Clone specs, with Indian Rosewood back and sides and a Cedar top, Abalone birds, Gotoh tuners, and Florentine cutaway—and it packs a rich and energetic voice to boot. Aside from a few marks, this baby is in primo condition, and it offers a well developed and dynamic response beyond its years. In short, this Olson is pretty darn perfect. Included is an L.R. Baggs LB6 pickup and Calton flight case.

James Olson guitars are very well known for their wonderful brilliance, openness, and balance. This one from 2012 has all of that and more. There’s a depth to this guitar that is compelling. It plays like a dream and has that sound we all love from the James Taylor records. This one has all the specs of a James Taylor signature model, although it is not officially one, but it’s all there, the beauty and the tone.
