Johnny A Spruce Top

Are there any Johnny A Spruce Top 2017 owner players out there?  I'm interested to know what players think of them.  I really can't find much said about the guitar.

There are a few I've seen for sale and could be interested in one.  It's almost as if this were a Phantom guitar.  😎

I don't think there are that many out there.  The original Johnny A had a two piece maple top, Bigsby, and the modified f-holes.  The spruce top had a stop bar, no f-holes, and the spruce top.  I would think that the spruce top without the f-holes would be a little less bright sounding, but that is just a guess on my part due to the lack of f-holes and the spruce as opposed to maple top.  Never heard two of them played side by side.
