JKM Guitars "500" acoustic guitar - custom built in Co. Down, Northern Ireland.

This is a bright and clear sounding Sitka and Mahogany 485 model (similar to an OM).

Featuring a Sitka Spruce soundboard, and Brazilian Mahogany back and sides (Swietenia macrophylla) this is a really great all rounder instrument, which would prove well with either pick of finger style.

With a lower bout of 403mm (just over 15 3/4”) its a comfortable full bodied guitar. Its standard appointments are still of the highest quality, featuring figured maple bindings, Mahogany dovetail neck, bound ebony fingerboard with mother of pearl fret markers, ebony head veneer, ebony pinless bridge and an oil and wax finish.

All finished off with a mahogany rosette, Gotoh 510 black chrome machine heads, and a hard case.
