James Goodall Guitars KCJ Concert Jumbo with Master Grade Cedar Top and AAA Koa Back and Sides

Like a delicious dish from a fine chef that one orders over and over again, this specific model Goodall guitar is one that we simply cannot resist.

When we first met James Goodall more than twenty years ago, he had at his NAMM exhibit a handful of very fine instruments, but one in particular captured our attention. It was a Concert Jumbo with a gorgeous Koa body and a cedar top with simple maple bindings, and it was breathtaking for its simple, natural, elegant appearance. Thus excited, we now wished to know if it could possibly sound as good as it looked, but one must understand that the background level of noise at a NAMM convention - they even have sound police - makes trying to hear anything of interest in an acoustic guitar's sound an exercise in futility. Generally, one can only judge the quality of the craftsmanship and the playability of an instrument in that hostile environment. Sensing our despair, James knew just what to do. He put the guitar in a case and led us to hallway he had discovered off of the convention floor where it was surprisingly quiet and free of interruptions. We could now sample the guitar's sound, and, likewise, it was as savory and as splendid as its appearance. We now knew we wanted one of this man's guitars - that one! And James obliged. This guitar is one more copy of many that we have commissioned of that first Goodall guitar we ever sampled - the one that made us fall in love with Goodall guitars.

This guitar includes a deluxe Ameritage archtop hardshell case.
