Gota vote for the J-35 as it is simply a great guitar. I have however, heard that the Farida 22s are very friendly to the ear.....similar to a Gibson LG2 sound/vibe. Are you taking the environment into consideration?? ie, will the guitar be in a controlled environment?? Having spent some years in the Med,.....some hot summers!! Wow, talk about the ol' only one guitar to take on a deserted island situation...I guess at the end of the day, which guitar would you miss the most?? At least you will no longer be in the "Where music goes to die".
