Description

Hiro Ebata spent several years in the shop of Ervin Somogyi at the same time as Michi Matsuda and Mario Beauregard. Three young makers that show the value of old world apprenticeship and how important study of the craft is. Ervin is one of our very favorite luthiers and regarded as a true Master in the world of Lutherie. This J is perfectly crafted with lovely details including Madagascar Rosewood, European Spruce, bound and bordered fingerboard, multi-layered headplate and perflings around top, back and sides. The voice is huge, with beautiful dread-like bass and authoritative trebles that make melodies soar. This guitar is truly satisfying played fingerstyle, flatpicked or strummed. This is a soulful and expressive instrument that we are extremely proud to offer to you.

I've been a huge fan of Hiro Ebata's guitars since we first met. The voice of his instruments shows his lineage to Somogyi, but also has an original flair. This J is tremendous. It simply roars with big, round bass and gloriously satisfying treble strings. It's rare for us to find a guitar this versatile, this strong, this inspiring. You can bet I'll play this one while it's with us.
 
This guitar rings like a piano and it has such incredible overtones that I couldn't believe my ears. It's also very playable and truly a gem of an instrument in every way. It's a very hard guitar to put down.
