Olson SJ Cutaway (USED, 1999)

Sale Pending


This 1999 Olson SJ Cutaway certainly lives up to the hype these guitars have generated since a certain upstart singer-songwriter with the initials "JT" made them famous. The SJ is Olson's most popular model, producing a huge amount of warmth, resonance and sustain when fingerpicked -- and its compact body size makes it extremely easy to play whether you're entertaining in your living room or performing in an amphitheater. This particular instrument remains in excellent condition, exhibiting only the most minor signs of handling ~ and the addition of a handsome florentine cutaway yields easy access to those upper frets for soloing. Priced with its original hard case, this guitar would make a bona fide lifetime companion for anyone who's had a pre-owned Olson guitar on their wish list. Signed and dated by the builder.
