Aloha! Get those swelling, weeping slide lines, reminiscent of the land where palm trees sway.
Designed in California and prototyped by luthier Bill Asher, the Junior has a neck-through solid mahogany body with a 25" scale length and 24 fret lines. The neck has a beautiful Indian rosewood fretboard, custom Alnico 5 pickup set (N: 14.61K, B: 15.53K) and upgraded Wilkinson tuners. The nut measures in at 1 3/4". The wrap-around aluminum bridge with flat radius gives optimal body contact, and thus enhanced sustain.
The Junior’s slightly wider string spacing allows for effortless playability making it a great cross-over instrument for guitar, Dobro and Weissenborn players. Designed with 24 frets, players have easy access to the 3rd octave allowing for expansive creative and tonal range.
Blues, rock, folk, jazz, country, Hawaiian, etc. the Jr. can handle it.
The pro luthiers here at EMS have gone over this steel to ensure that it is setup and ready for stage or studio! It ships with the slide bar, allen wrench, polishing cloth, and soft shell case!
