  1. Ordered back in June from Bailey Brothers and received it today. Jumbo body RW-wise I've had a J-45 Custom RW and Dwight Yoakam Honky Tonk Deuce RW. Both nice guitars but the sound didn't cut it. I do like my NL RW and Stage Dlx RW. First impressions Visual -Very nice VOS finish. The nitro is shrunk into the grain looking like a true vintage guitar. Finish looks very thin. The rosewood doesn't have the pores completely filled in which gives it an old time look. Aged binding looks very good. Even looks like a little bear claw going on just north of the bridge. One photo shows it flanked by a J-45 Legend and a 1952 J-45 Serial number is ink stamped on the neck block. No stamping on the head stock, no Custom Shop decal. Neck angle is perfect Tweaked the truss rod just a little A couple of the nut slots need to be taken down Unlike most historic recreations the bridge is not tapered thicker to the bass side. It's fairly straight No fabric side strips. The one with fabric shown below is a J-45 Legend Glue on the braces is a little sloppy like every old one I've looked at. Not a big deal. Neck - 1.775 wide at the nut, .805 thick at first fret. C shape I like it. Soundwise I like it. I have a NL 12 fret RW and Stage Deluxe RW but both have Nickel Bronze strings which my luthier has begged me to stop using. I'll wait a month or so and string them all the same (bronze) and do a good comparison. TKL version of the redline case.
