2002 Northwood MJ R-60 Engelmann Spruce and Mahogany

Northwood guitars are hand-crafted in British Columbia and we are pleased to have this great example of their work in our shop. Even the sides are bent by hand on these guitars, and they use only solid, book-matched wood in constructing their guitars. All of the interior surfaces are hand-sanded prior to the guitar being assembled, which means that the Northwood guitars are as clean on the inside as the outside! The Northwood MJ Mini-Jumbo delivers a deep, room filling sound. Similar to a J-200 but slightly smaller in size, this guitar sounds very big but retains a clear sweet high end. This particular model features an Engelmann Spruce top with mahogany back and sides, providing a lighting fast response with even the lightest playing styles. Engelmann is very warm and ideal for fingerstyle players. Not quite as soft as cedar, Engelmann is considerably softer and more responsive than Sitka with lush bass and rich overtones.

This MJ features 60 series appointments featuring a rosewood body binding and headstock overlay, an inlaid herringbone rosette, and a hand-fit, dove-tail neck joint.

This 2002 guitar has some oxidation marks on the edges of the tuning knobs, which we tried to show in the photo. There is a scratch on the lower bout of the top, shown in the photograph. A small finish crack is present around the soundhole near the neck, also photographed. This does not go through the wood. Hardshell case included.
