Description

This is a striking Hamblin SJ crafted from dramatic striped Ebony and a premium Italian Spruce top. The Ebony makes for tremendous sustain and big push of energy off the back that makes this a very loud and immediate guitar. Italian Spruce is one of the very strongest top woods we have and it always provides great clarity and sparkle in addition to power. This is a guitar with a big voice that is well suited for any style where volume is appreciated but it's also a lovely voice and allows you to emote when played more softly.

This is one of the stronger sounding SJs you'll find due to the wood combination here. Ebony bodies always seem to be fast responding and have great projection. Coupled here with Italian, there is power to spare. The build quality is top notch as Kent Hamblin has great experience, including teaching luthiery.
 
I like the clarity of tone that this guitar has without sacrificing richness. I sounds like a good recording guitar to me.
