Yep, I played a J-200 custom rosewood that appeared in my local git shop. It sounded friggin amazing. Thought the jumbo body with rosewood b/s would be muddy, but no sir. Increadibly rich, deep tone but with great clarity and note seperation.

This one sounds very similar to the one I played. Even though it cost around $4k it lasted only a week ...

I love it.

Would like to see him slam that thing ala Cat Stevens..& show some string attack but they picky wicky.
But it sounds pretty good & looks like it belongs in the Smithsonian Institue American History Museum. I love it.

Holy moley. That is just gorgeous. [drool]

As nice as the adi top is though, I think I might prefer it with a pickguard. The top looks so clean -- almost Taylorish -- without one. I suppose I could get used to it though.... [wink]

Hi JC.

I've been pretty busy for a couple weeks - just doing the occasional check in now and then. Unfortunately no time for shop visits.

I very much appreciate you pointing out some of your finds. I'm making a list. . B)
