This is a great sounding SJ that is also a terrific player with easy action. The short scale length helps with the feel, but it doesn't take away from the power nor the dry and punchy tone of the SJ. The size is based on the Gibson J-185, creating immense power and tonal depth. Aesthetically this is a gorgeous guitar, in excellent condition with a center seam separation that has been glued and, out of precaution, cleated (three small cleats). This guitar has an addition of a Dalmatian pickguard and a K&K pickup installed with controls at the soundhole. Original TKL case included.
