Southern Ontario has truly become an international hot-spot for premier guitar builders! Today, we are featuring another example of the incredible work being done by local builders: the Hart SJ-RW. This “small jumbo” guitar is the work of Joe Hart, from Guelph Ontario. The quality of Hart’s work is instantly apparent. Squeaky-clean neck joint, meticulous binding work, smooth finishing, refined bracing, and excellent fret work. Oh, and it just happens to sound fantastic! Beautifully clear articulation and balance, with a nice smooth sustain.
This SJ-RW is a wonderful guitar from Joe Hart. I can’t wait to see what he builds next!
