Description

Wide awake and singing oh so clear, our Charis SJ from 2013 is the perfect choice for anyone who wants a guitar that can do it all while looking good at the same time. This number is dressed to the nines with Red Cedar on top, brick-red Cocobolo back and sides with Tzalam bindings, and capped with a colorful, modern tree of life vine inlaid along the fretboard. Add to that a venetian cutaway, soundport, arm bevel, and L.R. Baggs Lyric pickup system, and you’ve got an exercise in effortlessness. The sides are deep enough to enhance projection and round out the bass response, but the lower bout is still only 15 3/8” wide in Bill Wise’s SJ configuration, so this beauty is very comfortable in hand.

Bill Wise of Charis Acoustics is beginning to make fewer guitars at this point in his career, so we were very excited to get this beautiful instrument in. Just look at the Cocobolo set here.
 
This one’s velvet all the way down. I love the smooth, rich, and expressive flavor that characterizes the voice of this Charis SJ, and Bill’s eye for tonewoods and appointments lends a gorgeousness to the presentation here.
