Olson Guitar: SJ


Description: Olson SJ Used, 2005, Exc. condition. What a stunner! 3 piece back on this Jim Olson creation. Spruceana (Amazon Rosewood) back and sides with a 3 piece back, the center piece being Black Brazilian Rosewood.

This same Black Brazilian is the headstock faceplate. This is one of only 3 guitars ever built by Jim Olson out of Spruceana.

German spruce top. Clear pickguard. Abalone and Brazilian Rosewood rosette.

LR Baggs/Crown GLM stereo pickup configuration. Ebony fretboard & bridge.

The body is bound in Brazilian rosewood and the top purfling and 2 back seams are Brazilian Rosewood.

Jim's signature, laminated, low-profile neck. But this one is ultra-cool with a smooth, gunstock feel to the finish. Very fast.

Colorful abalone headstock O logo outlined in Mother-of-Pearl. Gotoh gold 510 tuning machines with ebonoid buttons.

Gold Strap pin in neck. This guitar has a few minor dings and what appears as a wrinkle in the finish in the back center wedge of Brazilian Rosewood. Jim describes this as an inherent weakness in the grain that has not opened, but has telescoped through the finish.

Calton dlx flight case included.
