GJ2 has released a new model, the Arete (Ah- re-tay) 3 Star.
The new line of guitars is made at the same facility as the company’s higher-end models, but is designed to meet the needs of players looking for a more accessible price point.
Construction is neck through body and uses Sapele wood. The Arete 3 Star comes with “Habanero” pickups, which are designed and made by GJ2. The guitars are offered with a choice of fixed bridge or tremolo. The tremolo model features the Bladerunner “Supervee” tremolo unit.
Founder Grover Jackson, who oversees the construction, explained: “We took out some of the fancier decorative touches that don’t affect the tone or playability. For example, instead of mother of pearl inlays on the fingerboard and head, the 3 Star uses pearloid fret markers. This model also has a gig-bag instead of (…) hard case.”
Pricing & Availability:
The GJ2 Arete 3 Star electric is available in three striking looks: Natural, Midnight and Oxblood. Priced from $1,899, the guitar also includes a gig-bag and strap.
