The guitar sports nickel Gotoh white button tuners with a gear ratio of 15:1 while all moving parts are cut for exact meshing.
The Woody Guthrie SJ is equipped with an Element Active Acoustic Pickup system from L.R. Baggs featuring a low profile undersaddle element and an onboard preamp with a removable volume control mounted just inside the sound hole. The rosewood fingerboard features a rolled edge design and split parallelogram mother of pearl in lays. The guitar sports the tapered dovetail neck joint design which is one of the oldest methods of joining the neck to the body of the guitar. The guitar creation process is done entirely by hand which allows the body and neck to become one solid piece of resonating wood without metal to interfere with sound vibration. The slope-shoulder body design of the Woody Guthrie guitar has a top constructed of AA-grade Sitka spruce wood finish while the back and sides are of genuine Honduran mahogany. The hand crafted rosette is a double-ring design constructed of a main ring with seven-ply binding and a second ring with three-ply binding. The bracing of the Woody Guthrie SJ features a variation of the hand scalloped X pattern bracing situated behind the sound hole.
