Big, blonde and beautiful. The AJ80 Jumbo is a powerhouse guitar and incredible value. Now fitted with the fantastic LR Baggs StagePro EQ and Element pick up to optimize live performance. This 12-string model truly sings.
This caring approach to development comes from one simple goal: To deliver the best guitars in the market at every price point, instruments that are truly amazing value and offer a fantastic player experience.
We believe our multi award winning Artist Series is one of the finest solid top guitar lines in the world today and demonstrates our commitment to design.
Each model is designed to get the best out if its components, and for them to work together to produce balance, lively projection and great response. These components include our FST2 bracing system, bi-level rosewood bridge, real bone nut and saddle, great quality tone woods and thin finish.
FST2 is a forward shifted X brace design, this means the axis of the X is closer to the sound hole and therefore creates a larger soundboard area allowing for more energy and vibration to be harnessed. Both the X braces and asymmetric tone bars are carefully scalloped. The scalloping design was the result of years of continual development in our Yairi workshops.
The Artist Series sound and personality is open and powerful. FST2 also creates very good balance so both the treble and bass registers are clearly present and balanced in relation to each other.
