Thrilled to have two Charis SJ's in the shop right now, and this one in African blackwood no less. Its voice is very similar to the other one, but this one has slightly more sparkle in the reverb along with the bell-like resonance that reminds me of Brazilian rosewood. After a recent setup it plays incredible - super smooth, with that low-profile neck that reminds me of an Olson neck profile. Beautiful appointments too - even the backplate of the headstock has koa trim. Comes with white Mainstage case.
African blackwood back/sides Cedar top 15.25" SJ body with cutaway Gotoh 510 tuners Hawaiian koa binding and backstrip Cocobolo / MOP rosette MOP trim throughout 1 3/4" nut, 2 1/4" spacing, 25.6" scale
Cosmetically, this guitar is in excellent condition, with only very minor signs of handling.
