    The Lakewood premium range is the top of the range from this German handmade acoustic guitar builder. The Lakewood team have been building high quality instrument for many years and have developed a reputation around the world for truly first class more individual designs. We love this J-56 Premium guitar. The J-56 has a AAAA Spruce top that will have been hand selected and carefully chosen for the job. This top will be able to provide just that little bit extra tone and flavour over and above the standard grade tone woods chosen for other ranges. The stunning Koa all solid back and sides compliments this superb top and not only looks jaw droppingly attractive, but also sounds amazing. This has got to be one of the best all round tone wood combinations producing a detailed warm and clear big open sound that just rings out quality. Regardless of playing style or volume this instrument is a real performance monster providing a truly world beating acoustic guitar. We really like the feature and attention to detail that this guitar comes loaded with including the superb Ebony bridge and fingerboard and the inclusion of a very accurate and articulate lR baggs pickup system. This pickup is fitted without compromising the J-56's basic tone and structure as it is attached internally and does not come into contact with the tone woods at all. The controls are easy to access through the sound hole and respond very well to any amp or setting. All in all this guitar is pure liquid gold, we love it and highly recommend it. Custom order version are available through us so if you are interested in alternative tone woods or details please contact us as everything can be custom ordered including the fingerboard width. We look forward to hearing from you with any question and can assure you we will work hard to get you an amazing J-56 at a great price.
