Johnson – new cutaway acoustic/electric guitar

Johnson Carolina cutaway acoustic guitarJohnson Guitars has announced a new model for their Carolina series of acoustic guitars. The Carolina Cutaways feature a cutaway body and a Fishman EQ pickup system, and are available in either solid top or all-solid wood models, with the option of rosewood or mahogany back and sides.

Like the other models in the Carolina Series, the new cutaways were designed by master luthier Greg Rich. They feature fully scalloped forward-x bracing, grained ivoroid binding, Johnson’s original headstock inlays and come with a limited lifetime warranty.

The standard Carolina Cutaway model start just under $500, while the all solid wood models start at $799.

The Carolina Series guitars are offered in both dreadnaught and 000 body shapes, but the new cutaways seem to be only available as dreadnaughts at this time.
