   This NJ-16 is the 16" version of the ground breaking Neo-Jazz model. The Neo-Jazz was designed to include some structural and visual changes that I had been wanting to incorporate. To achieve a fuller sound from the top I moved the position of the sound holes away from the center. This allows for the central section of the top to be wider and more directly effected by the bridge vibration.

    The side port acts as a monitor to the player without reducing the forward sound projection. The top on this particular instrument is Sitka spruce, the back and sides are Big Leaf maple, the neck is hard maple and the fretboard, bridge, tailpiece and pickguard are African ebony. The pickup is a Bartolini 5J with a volume mounted to the pickguard, frets are 6150(medium jumbo) stainless steel.

Here is yet another example of how the Harrison GB model can be customized with just about any wood combination. This new instrument features an absolutely stunning hand carved Sapele top with some of the deepest Pomelle quilt figure that I've seen. The deep brown hue of this rare African tonewood goes well with the sculpted tropical mahogany body and the ultra stable 3-piece mahogany neck. The Macassar ebony fingerboard and bridge are bound in grained ivoroid and a hand carved ebony tailpiece completes the elegant look of this exceptional jazz guitar!

Because of the popularity of the first Model GB "Blister Top", Douglas Harrison has decided to fabricate another ... with an equally spectacular figured carved top. I've rarely seen a piece of maple with the deeply figured blister quilt of this particular instrument, and the custom hand tinted sunburst figure just serves to enhance this dramatic looking tonewood!

   Once again, I can't emphasize enough how ergonimically perfect this GB Model is. It really does feel to me that it just fits the player's body perfectly ... the physical balance ... the way everything from the first position to the highest registers of the fingerboard feels in the perfect position ... the neck contour ... it is in my opinion the perfect gigging jazz guitar!

   This new Model GB Harrison features an absolutely stunning "blister" figured carved maple top that is nothing short of breathtaking. This rare piece of tonewood is further enhanced by a custom amber patina that is hand rubbed directly into the wood before a pristine layer of gloss nitrocellolose lacquer is applied. Don't let the striking appearance of this instrument fool you though, once you plug it in, it is all business. The light weight and perfect physical balance of this guitar coupled with a fast neck profile and highly polished stainless steel frets makes this guitar a joy to play. The resonant chamber of the GB really adds depth and articulation to the Seymour Duncan humbucker to create that classic jazz guitar tone.
