Nothing screams "vintage" more than our SJ-200 Western Classic
. With its 3 piece Indian rosewood back and sides, its 2 piece figured maple neck, and premium AAA Sitka spruce top, one strum across the strings will send you back in time to the days of Ray Whitley and Gene Autrey in their black and white splendor. This particular model receives our special tri-burst finish on its top, giving it just that little extra pow over an average vintage sunburst finish. The look is finished off with a multi-bound, high grade ebony fret board (with exquisite Mother-of-Pearl crown inlays) and matching ebony moustache bridge (with its vintage "4-bar/2-dot" Mother-of-Pearl inlays).
The looks of this beauty will draw you in, however, it is the sound that will keep you playing. The Western Classic has all the boom you expect from the SJ-200 size and the added twang you get from the Indian rosewood is a special treat you will not find on most models. The smooth playability of the "fret over binding" fret board in combination with the gold Waverly tuners will make this one hard guitar to put down.
