The AJ series is the largest of the guitars we make. It has huge volume with a big bottom end but still retaining balance in the mid and treble range. It's popular among Irish traditional session players for its ability to compete with all the other instruments. It's also a wonderful guitar for those who like to fill a room with sound.
