Vintage Southerner

Below are the standard specifications for this particular model. Prior to 2019, Sitka Spruce was the standard top wood, but now this model comes available with a long list of custom options, including various top woods, that can be added for no additional charge. Click here to see all the options available to you, and design your own.

In addition to the VA Model, the 1930’s Advanced Jumbo, J-45 and the iconic early 60’s Epiphone Texan also lent their considerable retro cool to the origins of our Vintage Southerner Model. Each one of these guitars was a favorite of several of SCGC’s veteran luthiers and so inspired this regal compliment to the SCGC VJ Model. The must have feature of the SCGC VS is the shorter, 24-3/4 inch scale length. It is so yielding to the touch that fretting and reach are a pleasure. The scale puts the bridge in the optimal position to produce the comforting, growling presence of an old blues recording. The VS will respond with considerably more refined quality than the oldies, while inspiring room to grow throughout your musical career.
