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 Goodall concert jumbo model (CJ) sports a sitka spruce top and a highly figured curly walnut back and sides. Walnut is an aesthetically pleasing heartwood that ranges from light pale brown to a dark chocolate brown with darker brown streaks.

Walnut’s density and stiffness yield bright treble notes and a stronger mid range compared to rosewood and mahogany. It also gives a woody bass tone that will grow richer with time and pairs very well with sitka spruce to give the guitar a wholesome and balanced tone.

This consigned guitar has been kept in excellent condition with minimal playmarks. With new pieces retailing at USD$7500 today and annual production numbers for Goodall guitars being kept at small numbers, we expect this guitar to hold its value very well in time.
