The left handed Takamine JJ325SRC-12 LH John Jorgenson Signature Series 12-string Acoustic electric guitar was designed in collaboration with guitarist extraordinaire John Jorgenson whose Bluegrass, Country, Rock and Django-inspired Gypsy Jazz stylings require that his signature model guitar be as musically versatile as he is. Since John’s mastery is not confined to a single genre, the John Jorgenson Signature Series 12-string from Takamine was designed to handle a wide array of musical styles and was therefore built for sonic versatility.
Featuring a Dreadnought cutaway body with a solid Spruce top and Bubinga back and sides, the JJ325SRC-12LH is voiced to travel well across a variety of genres. Whether he’s playing lightning fast Gypsy Jazz licks, or laying down a blistering fast Bluegrass accompaniment, the Spruce top with Bubinga back and sides give this John Jorgenson Signature 12-String the depth, power and shimmering upper mid-range articulation and clarity that Jorgenson needs to fulfill his musical vision. And with a spot-on gloss red finish, a retro-cool white pickguard, decorative rosette, gold tuners and decorative JJ inlay at the 12th fret, this John Jorgenson Signature 12-string is as impressive to look at as it is to listen to!
The key to this 12-String Dreadnought Cutaway’s uncommon playability is its sleek and super comfortable neck. The thin, D-shaped Mahogany neck, with a 20-fret Rosewood fingerboard with a 12“ radius that feels great in the hand, while a deep cutaway offers unfettered access to the entire fingerboard, offering Jorgenson the perfect template on which to realize his musical vision.
This gorgeous Takamine John Jorgenson Signature Model comes stage ready with Takamine’s acclaimed CT4B II preamp system paired with the unique Palathetic™ under-saddle pickup for peerless amplified response and thick harmonics. Featuring a 3-band EQ (bass, mid and treble), a volume slider, and a handy built-in chromatic tuner, the CR4B II preamp system is designed to retain and amplify the guitar’s natural acoustic tone.
Takamine’s attention to detail in this John Jorgenson Signature Model is really quite amazing, producing a gorgeous 12-String acoustic-electric that is sonically versatile enough for guitarist extraordinaire John Jorgenson. Whether he’s burning up the fretboard playing Django-inspired Jazz or Progressive Bluegrass, or slowing things down for a shimmering Country ballad, the Takamine Left Handed JJ325SRC-12 LH John Jorgenson Signature Series 12-String Acoustic Electric Guitar delivers the tone and playability you need to realize your personal musical vision the way Grammy Award Winner John Jorgenson has!
