Description

Brian Applegate builds one of the most precise guitars we have seen, which isn't surprising, as he is a good friend of the legendary builder Jim Olson. This SJ Multiscale in Adirondack (Red) Spruce and East Indian Rosewood represents everything we have come to expect from a high caliber builder: perfect tone, feel, and playability. This is a prototype from Brian, his first foray into the world of multiscale layouts, and he pulled it off flawlessly with 26.4" on the bass side and 24.9" on the treble. The combination of Brian's smooth voicing and the even tension of the multiscale makes this guitar superbly balanced and versatile.

I love the multiscale layout on this one, it feels natural under the fingers and the scale length really evens out the string tension.
 
With the multiple scale lengths, this guitar is ideal for low tunings and with Applegate's characteristic overtones, it sound great too.
