Description

We are delighted to have here the latest Dream Series from luthier Jason Simpson. Martin Simpson and I sort of 'discovered' Jason years ago and we've been delighted to bring his work to you our customers as it is shining example of modern luthiery. This SJ Dream Series is simply breathtaking, gorgeous Brazilian Rosewood, German Spruce, dual Side Soundports, elevated fingerboard, the most wonderful armrest bevel and elegant details throughout. Jason's voice is clear and present reminiscent of Ryan but with perhaps more power in the mid range. We consider Jason's guitars to be one of the most versatile, wonderfully adept at fingerstyle, flatpicking and strumming in many genres.

This is the first Simpson guitar to have Dual Soundports. As a Dream Series it has the absolute finest Brazilian Rosewood and premium German Spruce. It also features Jason's beautiful and functional armrest, a cutaway, elevated fingerboard that frees the top and this one has custom headstock inlays to compliment the abalone top trim. Simply stunning, but not just to the eyes but the ears as well.
 
Jason Simpsons workmanship is up there with the very best of them. This one is an amazingly beautiful custom instrument with the right combination of style and sound.
