PG Guitars SJ 'Sitka Spruce / Quilted Maple' Acoustic Guitar

Available at Acoustic Centre Melbourne

Peter Grubb is a wonderfully talented Australian luthier, building refined and thoughtful instruments by hand in his Alphington, Victoria workshop. Designed to be responsive, dynamic instruments, PG Guitars blend traditional craftsmanship and attention to detail with luxurious appointments, incredible timbers and impeccable playability. We're very excited to be stocking Peter's guitars, and this wonderful SJ (Small Jumbo) model is a wonderful showcase for his impressive skills.
Featuring a flawless Sitka Spruce top paired with gorgeously quilted European Maple, this SJ is a fingerstylists dream. Rich with overtones that never overwhelm, it's wonderfully responsive and dynamic with a balanced, open tone with a slight natural compression. The neck is African mahogany, with ebony fretboard, bridge binding and bridge pins, a killer two-tone headplate featuring Macassar ebony and Quilted Maple, compensated bone nut and saddle, and a beautiful Macassar ebony rosette. The neck position markers and bridge pins are inlaid with brass, a minor but beautiful detail. 
Playability is superb - the SJ features a 14-fret neck with florentine cutaway for easy access to the higher registers, and the fretboard has a compound radius of 12" - 20" to allow easy chording while accommodating more adventurous playing in the higher registers.
This wonderful guitar is handmade and completely one-of-a-kind, built by a talented luthier right here in our backyard. Includes Hiscox hardshell flight case.

We endeavour to show the actual instrument in stock whenever possible, but the guitar in stock may differ slightly from the one shown on our website. Materials used can look different from guitar to guitar, including timber grain and colour, parts colours and finishing. If an instrument is a one-of-a-kind or preowned guitar, the picture will always be of the actual guitar in stock, but production models may have slight variations to the picture shown.

If you're after a particular look, feel free to email us at or send us a message through our chat service to request photos of the actual guitar in stock. We are more than happy to send through pictures of all in-stock guitars, to make your choice easier.

Please note that returns will not be accepted for variations in timber grain /  colouring, finish variations and parts colouring, unless there is a fault with the instrument. If you have any questions at all regarding an instrument's appearance, just drop us a line - we're always happy to send photos, and if we have more than one instrument in stock you'll be able to choose the exact guitar that you receive!
