JB-14

The JB-14 was inspired by some of the best semi hollow designs of the past but taken to a higher level of refinement. At it's core is the same reliable neck through design available in our voodoo model, but the neck is strategically hollowed out and encased in a deeper hollow carved body. This build approach gives the Jb a more forgiving bass response with increased lower mids, and a touch sensitivity that is unmatched. The playing surface is designed around the 25'' scale, 22 fret, and 12'' radius. By shifting the pickup placement further up the string path, the voice of the Jb falls more in line with lush chordal progressions and smooth jazz, but still retains all of the balanced high end for stinging blues and lead playing . There is a bounce to this model that makes fingerstyle walking bass lines more pronounced but crisp. The Jb14 keeps all of the richness that you want in a semi hollow but with all of the obedience of a solidbody.
