Description


If we could play guitars as fine as this 2007 Applegate SJ all day, it wouldn't be called work. Brian bedecked this SJ with all the bells and whistles: Florentine Cutaway, Koa bindings and arm bevel, African Blackwood back and sides, European Spruce top, and the piéce de resistance, a lute-style soundport in the upper bout! Applegate voiced this SJ with a fingerstylist in mind; listen and you can hear each string ring clean and distinct, and the African Blackwood lends a cavernous, haunting quality to the bass response.



These trebles ought to come with their own nutrition fact sheet; they're that fat and juicy. Playability is breezy and glass-smooth, perfect for swift and efficient left hand work, and this Applegate handles lowered tunings like it was made for it (which is actually the case). Kept in superb condition, this 2007 SJ has opened up sweetly, and is ready to make music for many more years to come.

Big, immediate response. The trebles have a lot of overtones, and blend well with the cool, dark bass. Brian's attention to detail makes for a gorgeous-looking guitar, from the lute-style carved soundport to the perfectly-matched miters across the bindings.
 
This SJ has a really nicely balanced tone and if you like Olson SJ guitars, you'll like this one. He learned much of what he does from Jim Olson.
