I've heard of Jonathan's guitars for quite some time now, but this is the first one in the shop. And holy cow, now I see what all the fuss is about. These are compared to Bashkins, and I think that's very appropriate. There aren't very many of these out there, and I'm told that Jonathan isn't currently building, so this may be your last chance for a while! Love the options on this one - the bevel looks particularly nice, and that's the first time I've seen a transverse sound port in that style. Inlays, purfling, binding - all top notch. Very clear voice, with a sublime "bloom" effect that seems to fill up the box and come pouring out of the sound hole. Plays fantastic. Comes with Ameritage case. New build price would be right at $9K on this one.

Cosmetically, this guitar is in very good to excellent condition, with only very minor signs of handling.
