Mini-Jumbo

The mini-jumbo is one of John's most popular models. Starting with the basic jumbo shape, John has reduced the size to make the instrument more comfortable to hold. Then, he carefully "tweaks" of the proportions to make the most of both the visual and the acoustic characteristics of the guitar. Available in non-cutaway and either  Florentine or Venetian cutaway styles, with many wood and trim options, this is an instrument that the most demanding player would be proud to own.

(Clockwise from top left) Bubinga, Walnut, Koa, and Ziracote

Side views of Koa (top) and Ziracote show off their beautiful grain

Exquisite detailing of the cutaway, abalone soundboard inlay, and rosette

The beautiful grain of the Ziracote is set off by the Flame Maple wedge and binding, and carefully fit black/white/black purfling.

John's trademark "bird" inlay sits proudly on the finely crafted headstock, with chrome and ebony Schaller tuners and engraved truss rod cover.
