1996 Jeff Henry LJ (Little Jumbo) Guitar

(Serial No. 028) Excellent condition. Jeff Henry is the head luthier at Maple Street Guitars out of Atlanta, and has been building acoustic guitars since 1994. Even with this relatively early build, he figured out how to get the sound out of the wood. For a short video clip of this guitar played by James Hurlburt of Lakeland FL click here. The LJ is a midsized guitar that responds well to fingerpicking and flatpicking. It has the sustain and presence expected from a lightly built instrument and responds well to the touch. It is a pleasure to play up and down the fretboard. Its about the size of a 000 Martin but shaped like a small jumbo. The back and sides are mahogany, the top is solid Sitka spruce, binding is tortoise, the nut on the rosewood fretboard is 1 11/16 inch, scale length is 25 3/4 inch, and the bridge is rosewood with a straight saddle. Fitted with an internal pickup and endpin jack. Strap buttom added at the heel. Pearl logo. Neck is straight, frets are good. Finish and hardware are original. There are no structural repairs. The action is nice and low. Shows minor playing wear but nothing significant. Comes with the original hardshell case.
