GOODALL CJ PORT OXFORD CEDAR MADAGASCAR ROSEWOOD (SOLD)


James Goodall represents an artisan who is at the pinnacle of his profession. Superb craftsmanship, an exacting finesse for detail and wood choice and a robust three dimensional tone are qualities you will discover on every Goodall guitar.

This pre-owned concert jumbo model (CJ) sports a mastergrade port oxford cedar top and an absolutely stunning set Madagascar rosewood back and sides that is extremely rare by today's standards.

Port Orford Cedar is stiff and light hence very suitable for soundboards. It is highly sought after for the bold, robust, responsive tone that it imparts on an instrument. It is very even textured, with a slight golden-white color and tight, even grain. A great advantage to the builder is that this wood is more immune to splitting than absolutely any other soundboard wood.

Madagascar rosewood gives an even responsive tone across the wide tonal register. The tone is responsive, dynamic and crisp hence it's often referenced to old-growth Brazilian Rosewood. When paired together, the resulting tone is full and rich in overtones.

This consigned guitar has been kept in excellent condition except for a slight discoloration near the pickguard when tilted in certain angles under daylight. It is otherwise a lovely instrument and will an impressive guitar to play.
