JJL One Specifications and Options

There are currently two JJL One Models; The Atlanta (singlecut) and The Vecta (doublecut). Both of these can be configured in a variety of different ways with choices of hardware below.

Body

Choice of one piece of aged, river recovered Honduras mahogany or real English Walnut.

JJL One Guitars are one piece guitars (hence the name). So no neck joint or bolted on or glued on, no headstock scarf joint, not a neck through design, no pieces of wood glued and laminated together to form a body, just one - and only one piece of wood carved as a one piece guitar in our own unique single cut and double cut shapes.

Scale lengths

Currently, JJL offer a 25 scale for the single cut Altanta and 25.5 for the double cut Vecta. More scale length options will become available.

Fretboard, truss and nut

The fretboard option for both guitar models are currently Ziracote, Ebony or Cocobolo. The double beta titanium truss rod is adjusted via a spoke wheel at the end of the fretboard and the Zero nut (locking or fixed) is a titanium nut directly connected to the Atlantic bridge via the titanium acoustic chassis. The locking version closes sideways with small hidden hex bolts to lock the strings, which are then anchored via a special, height adjustable, zero fret. Both fretboards are 24 frets.

Currently the choice of frets are:

  1. JJL custom Tungsten Carbide jumbo, or brilliant white or brilliant black jumbo Zirconium.
  2. Standard stainless steel or nickel silver any profile.

Models, specs and options

Tuners

The tuners are custom Schaller M6 locking pin in Ruthenium, with our own hand polished titanium Ray pegs.

Atlantic Bridges

Tremolo version:

Finished in polished titanium or polished titanium/black DLC

So named because it bridges the impossible - it moves with no moving parts. This extraordinary new innovation has been called engineering art. The hand polished titanium bridge uses our own unique, proprietary vertical flexures married to custom designed springs to create a linear movement which moves without pivoting, sliding and with no knife edge or bearings etc. and no ugly hole in the back of the guitar.

The flexures and their chassis are connected directly to the unique acoustic chassis which in turn is connected directly to the Zero nut at the other end of the guitar. The tremolo arm is height adjustable and feel adjustable (soft and spongy to firm and positive) to allow you find your most comfortable playing level. The action allows 1 full octave down to 1/2 octave up.

The bridge has three modes: Full locking (fixed bridge mode), Half locking (downwards moving only blocked if you break a string) Fully Floating (normal tremolo mode). These are actioned via a three way depressor switch on the top plate.

This engineering marvel with its low aero wing profile was also designed primarily to be a very comfortable place to rest and use your palm for damping techniques.

Fixed version:

Finished in polished titanium or polished titanium/black DLC

The stylish Atlantic fixed bridge has fully adjustable saddles for height and length adjustment and like the Atlantic version is again directly connected the the acoustic chassis (then to the Zero nut).

The Atlanta model currently has two titanium ice blade diffusion double profiles housing custom Zexcoil pickups (one coil per string) which can be split between full humbucker and split, single mode for clean sounds.

The Vecta model currently has a three single pickup configuration with our unique titanium single covers. However, the Zexcoil pickups are full humbuckers with clean split for bridge and neck but with a custom underwound single for the middle which matches the split output of the other two.

The electronics have pulls for the split function, but the volume knobs also have pulls to enable a separate 250k circuit and various configurations on the Vecta.

Like the Atlantic bridges, the custom knobs, switches and strap buttons, the pickup covers can be ordered in polished titanium or polished titanium/DLC.
