The Sidejack Series is set to expand again, with the addition of a new model coming soon - the Sidejack JM Pro DLX.

2018 is the year when we're taking the Sidejack series to a whole new level. Besides the addition of exciting new colors for the Sidejack Pro models, we're also bringing out a new guitar: the Sidejack JM Pro DLX, inspired by the legendary 1965 Mosrite Joe Maphis mk1 guitar.

The Sidejack JM Pro DLX features an offset body similar to the Sidejack, but it's a semi-acoustic guitar with f-hole, and its "horns" are less prominent than the Sidejack Pro, a design inspired by the original Joe Maphis model.

Like the Sidejack Pro DLX models, the Sidejack JM Pro DLX features upgraded hardware and more "Mosrite-like" features than the standard Sidejack guitars, such as the back neck plate, hotter pickups, nickel knobs, branded hardware.

Of course, it also features more modern appointments, such as a more comfortable neck than the vintage Mosrites, and our "Jazzmaster-style" tremolo, which we found to work better for this type of guitar.

Who was Joe Maphis?

Joe Maphis

Joe Maphis was a country guitarist who earned the nickname "The King Of Strings", for being one of the flashiest country guitarists during the 50's and 60's. He worked with legends such as Merle Travis, Johnny Cash and Wanda Jackson, and was renowned enough to get his own signature Mosrite models.

Though his best-known signature guitar was the Mosrite Joe Maphis double neck, the 1965 mk1 and the mk2 (with more curved horns) remain some of the most exquisite and collectible of Mosrites. 

Soon, today's country, blues and rock'n'roll players will be able to  get the new Sidejack JM Pro DLX , which will bring back that same vibe, in one stunning, modern instrument.

  • Black guard, yeah – or red tort, you see those on the Mosrite JM. But really a cool idea overall!

  • I really like it, but you’ll be going up against the Danelectro 66, which is arguably the best guitar they have ever made. No tremelo there, but with the Dano at about $700 it might be hard to compete.

  • This would look so much better with a black pick guard.
