The LJ (Little Jumbo) is a midsized guitar that responds well to fingerpicking and flatpicking. It has the sustain and presence expected from a lightly built instrument and responds well to the touch. It is a pleasure to play up and down the fretboard.

Number 078 is a slightly deeper body than the previous LJs. Combine that with an Engelmann Spruce top and African Mahogany back and sides and you have a very comfortable midsize guitar with more bass and projection.
