Used 2005 Burkett AJ Advanced Jumbo

SKU Burkett

It is not every day that we receive a Brazilian Rosewood slope shoulder dreadnought so fully featured and with a crisp, robust and mature tone. Lets dig into some of the awesome features of this unique Burkett SD. 

Taking inspiration from 1937 Gibson AJ specs but with a 24.75" scale this instrument is comfortable to play but has tone in spades. One of my favorite things about this guitar is the wonderfully straight grained Brazilian Rosewood, finely quarter sawn. The neck shape is comfortable with a 1 3/4" nut. The Adirondack spruce top and braces lends the perfect soundboard for the winning Brazilian and Adi wood combination, often thought of as the finest wood combination for a guitar. This instrument is all tied together with a dazzling curly Koa body and binding along with a Koa /lack/Koa rosette. The cut-through saddle gives it a classic look and solid tone. And to top it all off it has a wonderful finish featuring a classic sunburst and nitro finish. 

Other fine details of this instrument include a 42 style fretboard inlay and Waverly tuners. The top has a repaired center seam which was re-glued and is stable. Ebony fingerboard & bridge, bone nut and saddle along with a Greven pickguard. Comes with a TKL hard shell case with a carbon fiber look.
