Blazer & Henkes Memphis Custom Super Jumbo Sunburst 1994

While Blazer and Henkes were busy building their own guitars, in the style of traditional American steel-string guitars and specializing in the restoration and repair of American pre-war instruments, they realized how similar these guitars were to traditional German guitars in construction and materials. As lovers of old American guitars, they have made many replicas of these beautiful instruments, not only authentic in appearance, but also in design and construction.

This B&H Memphis Custom Super Jumbo is a very special guitar, built with a double X-brace, which was used in the original SJ from 1951 to 1960. It was a project by Willie Henkes and therefore differs from the standard B&H guitars. Although the headstock of this one-of-a-kind Memphis Custom says Blazer, this guitar is one of the first pieces that represent the inception of the cooperation between Blazer and Henkes.

This 17 "jumbo has a dovetail neck joint construction, flamed maple body, alpine spruce top with full Hide-Glue construction. The sound box is finished in a perfect Sunburst finish, which is a work of art in itself. The flamed maple neck has a bound ebony button and 12 "radius. The neck ends at the head with an ebony head plate that has beautiful pearl 'Torch' inlays and golden Waverly tuners.

This Blazer & Henkes is in excellent condition with some general traces of use including a light blemish on the treble side of the top. The nitro finish has weatherchecked through the years, which gives this SJ with the a beautiful vintage appearance that only adds to its perfect sunburst finish.
