Johnson JD-27 2000s Blonde

$ 490.00

New Old Stock! Second and final guitar from this lot. This guitar was purchased by the owner of Douglass Pianos in Madison, Wis., and never used. It has lived in its hardshell case (included) ever since. If you look up reviews of these guitars, you will be pleasantly surprised at the reputation of these lesser known gems. It looks like it just left the factory.  It needs a set of strings and someone to love it. Carolina Series II guitars have the same excellent features as the Series I, but with solid back and sides in mahogany or rosewood, and a one-piece mahogany neck. The solid options for back and sides give the guitar a true bluegrass sound and body that’s perfect for flatpicking.

From traditional folk to progressive bluegrass, there are features on every Carolina to appeal to your acoustic style. These guitars feature a solid Engelmann spruce top, back and sides made of African mahogany or East Indian rosewood, classic fittings such as butterbean tuners and hand-cut abalone/M.O.P. detailing.

The big, well-balanced tone on these guitars is exceptional especially because of the pre-war style construction. The fully scalloped forward-x bracing is a 1930’s style that adds strength and resonance to lower registers and more clarity to the highs. Players of any style will definitely hear the difference in this all-solid pre-war style acoustic! JD27 Features
