Hi All, first time poster. Would really appreciate your opinion please. Got the J 45 2019 walnut ( GC exclusive) and it's nothing like the warm tone I was imagining., especially with Walnut. Tinny and metallic and rather unpleasant TBH. Brought it in for a Platinum Set-up and it came back worse. They put on some Martin light strings and now the D string has a fret buzz that wasn't there before. Did I just maybe just get a lemon?? ( was on sale for $1999 regular $2999) .
I did use it for 2 months before bringing it in. I thought it maybe had an intonation issue but the Low E string is still off ( on 212th fret intonation test) after tune up. GC says they'll swap it out for another if I wish. Worth it or is this just the way a J45 sounds and it's the wrong guitar for me ? I bought it to accompany me singing - light rock style. Thanks for your replies !
