Japanese Red Pine
In this special series, the body is made out of Japanese red pine wood, particularly, from red pine trees from Matsumoto city that have been partially eaten out by pine weevils and had to be cut down to prevent potential accidents.
From the front of the body all the way to the sides and the back you can see various leftover markings due to the knots and holes made by the pine weevils before the tree was cut down. During the making of a regular guitar, every single spot would be sanded down and polished to the point were no visual imperfections could be seen, but with our JRP series, we intend to embrace the wood’s characteristics and features and make them shine as a reminder of their origins and what they represent.
Please don’t lose the chance to try out this amazing one of a kind guitar that oozes uniqueness and style while driving us towards a more environmentally-minded tomorrow.
This time around, we decided to go for Staple type pickups, that in combination with the Japanese red pine and its lightweight properties give us, as a result, a well-balanced tone with great high-middles.
We feel like the three colors that we choose for this model do a good job of complementing all the details that make the JRP Series so unique.
Available colors: CR-MAT、DB-MAT、CHG-MAT.
※Please keep in mind that due to the nature of this product the patterns and details of the wood will vary from the pictures.
