The Basics

Classic styling with a tight-waisted jumbo body shape, the J-40 has solid East Indian rosewood back and sides, Sitka spruce top, polished gloss finish and a hand-fit dovetail neck joint. It produces a tone that is beautifully balanced with powerful response and volume, enhancing the art of the singer-songwriter.
