That's a nice looking top! I don't know if the accoustic community will embrace the adj. electric type bridge and saddles and the e-tune system. However, did you get to try one? It will depend on how it plays and sounds. It's a beautiful sunburst.

Only seen and heard one. Didn't play it. It sounded pretty good, but no better than anything I own. I love the sunburst on this model, but to me it's not worth all that extra money for the burst and other options on it. Especially when I could find a J45 Standard that would sound just as good and might blow the doors off of it. For me, the automatic tuners would be a real waste. For those who play a lot of different alternate tunings, I can see the lure of this model. Fast tuning changes and no need to carry multiple guitars around. I don't doubt the quality of the instrument, but I'm an old dog and a traditionalist for the most part.

I've made my own Songwriter standard Progressive.

Back to the OP.Nothing fancy about the new J-45 progressive. It just a J45 with the Tronical tune. It cost $120 free shipping off the Ebay.Very easy to install and convert back to original.So easy even my Grandmother can do it. No harm to your guitar except for your wallet.
