T. Drew Heinonen SJ 'Western Red Cedar / Indian Rosewood' Preowned

Available at Acoustic Centre Melbourne

This T. Drew Heinonen SJ 'Western Red Cedar / Indian Rosewood' is a masterpiece born from the hands of luthier T. Drew Heinonen, whose expertise was honed under the guidance of esteemed builders Dana Bourgeois and James Olson. Bearing the marks of craftsmanship reminiscent of Olson's iconic SJs, this guitar, numbered 052, boasts a stunning East Indian Rosewood body paired with premium Western Red Cedar for the top. The result? A mesmerizing sound that captivates with its richness, saturated overtones, and a remarkable balance of crispness and clarity, particularly noteworthy for a Cedar-topped instrument. Considered by many as a more accessible alternative to an Olson, this guitar stands tall as a superb choice for fingerstyle enthusiasts and connoisseurs alike. 

Crafted in direct emulation of the famed Olson SJ (and using Olson's original plans under his guidance), a guitar famously associated with James Taylor, this guitar showcases a sought-after Master Grade Western Red Cedar top, ensuring a tonal experience that exceeds expectations. Complemented by the richness of East Indian Rosewood back and sides, adorned with exquisite Abalone and Mother of Pearl detailing on the top, rosette, backstrip, and fingerboard, this instrument is a true work of art. Its effortless playability, deep resonance, prolonged sustain, and immediate responsiveness make it a standout in any collection, embodying Drew's signature refined elegance and craftsmanship.

This preowned model is in spectacular condition, with almost no sign of playwear whatsoever. The sound is otherworldly, and the incredible build quality and attention to detail really shines through. A pickup was previously attached, and there is an output jack mounted in the lower strap button position that can be easily connected to a pickup of your choosing. Make no mistake - this is just about as good as a fingerstyle acoustic guitar gets! Includes Hoffee hardshell case.
