    With the active electronic pick up (Fishman Prefix Stereo Onboard Blender) and single cut-away body of East Indian Rosewood, the SPJC-16RE was designed as a stage guitar for players who prefer the body size of a OOO. The guitar was produced from 2000 to 2003, and this example is a production prototype.
