 Cool Picture of James Taylor with a Northwood MJ-80!





Northwood Custom MJ-80R with Englemann Top and Rosewood Back and Sides! The Same Guitar and Same Woods that James Taylor Is Playing in the Photo Above!

$4095 List price, on sale for $3299!
 

The Northwood MJ defies convention.  It is a large guitar with great volume and bass, but it is also incredibly responsive for fingerstyle.  It can flatpick and strum marvelously, but then you can play intricate single note runs and fingerstyle pieces and it just rings and rings.  This is really one guitar that will do everything well.  I have always thought that the MJ may be the best sounding guitar in the shop, but this particular one really seems to be one of the best that I have ever had.  John builds a fantastic all hand made guitar, and if you can handle a bit larger guitar, this one will blow you away.  It features a beautiful, blond Englemann spruce top, and a gorgeous rosewood back and sides.  It has very nice Grover open back tuners, and a bone nut and saddle.  This guitar is amazing, and you will not believe your ears when you go from one style to the next and never miss a beat.  It really is that good.  



Northwood Custom OOO-70R with Cedar Top and Rosewood Back and Sides!
  

1 13/16" Nut Width!  $2499!
 

The Northwood OOO is a fantastic guitar.  It is unbelievably resonant, very compact, and very comfortable to play.  The cedar and rosewood is a wonderful combination, giving great clarity and responsiveness for fingerstyle, wtih great richness and lush overtones.  It is good for light to moderate strumming and picking as well.  An all hand-made Northwood is an incredible instrument.  It is entirely hand crafted, lighter, and more responsive than a factory built instrument.  The sustain is unbelievable, and will blow you away with its bell-like clarity.  This is a guitar for the player who can appreciate the subtle differences a hand-made instrument provides.  The 12 fret OOO is very comfortable to play, and will surpise you with the amount of volume and bass you get from such a comfortable guitar.  This guitar comes with an exceptinal Hiscox hardshell case.  These never last long, and they take 6 to 9 months to build.  You will love this Northwood OOO!
