  • Infos : The American luthier James A. Olson ("Jim") has been handcrafting acoustic flat top guitars since 1977. His instruments began getting national attention in the mid 1980s, after Phil Keaggy commissioned the first cedar-topped Olson SJ guitar and began playing Olson guitars almost exclusively on his acoustic albums and in concert. In 1989, James Taylor purchased three of Jim's guitars; through Taylor's visibility, Olson guitars became known and prized by a wide variety of players around the world. Today an impressive number of well-known players in styles spanning finger style to bluegrass to country to pop or rock are proud Olson owners, including Leo Kottke, David Wilcox, James Taylor, Graham Nash, Sting, and many others. Although in dead mint condition, this SJ model was handmade in 1997. It sports a cedar top with rosewood back and sides. Just like Taylor’s guitars, it has a built in L.R. Baggs legendary LB-6 model.
