Andy Crockett JC1 Guitars

Luthier Andy Crockett started building his unique semi-acoustic jazz guitars back in 1975, to a design by his long time friend and guitarist Jon Case. The culmination of their partnership is the JC1. Built in the D’Angelico tradition, but with a contemporary twist, it’s asymmetric shape gives it the look of a full size jazz guitar, while coming with the balance and comfort of a more compact model. Used by players such as Jim Mullen, it has the advantage of a greater bass string length, with consequently more tension, offering the player the opportunity to use lighter gauges at the lower end. With a customising facility, these instruments can be built to your very own specifications. But be warned – perfection comes at a price.
