This guitar is patterned after the pre-war Gibson AJ guitar — some say the AJ was the best guitar that Gibson ever made. I have built this guitar close to the specs for the AJ/J-35/Rockbridge Slope D, except that the back and sides are Cocobolo rosewood, and the top is Adirondack spruce. The cocobolo and Adirondack are a great match in this size of guitar — it has beautiful tone and plenty of volume. It was built as a commissioned guitar, but it is definitely worth building again.
