**This is a pre-order. The current ETA is February, but to leave some buffer in there for any manufacturing or delivery delays we're estimating a March ship date. A deposit of $325 reserves the guitar for you! You’ll pay the rest when we receive the guitar in the shop and she’s ready to ship to you.**

Components on the JM-II include a set of Fishman Fluence Modern Humbucker pickups (alnico in the neck and ceramic in the bridge), with push-pull control to select voicings. It also offers LTD locking tuners and a recessed Gotoh TOM bridge with string-thru-body design. Available in Black Shadow Burst finish.
