livemusic Posted February 17, 2012 Report Share Posted February 17, 2012 I have a 2010 standard J-45 I bought from Guitar Center, of all places. I bought it because I had become convinced I wanted a J-45 and called music stores in a 300 mile radius to find who had one in stock. Nearest was five hours way. I told them to hold it and I drove down. GC made me a very good deal and said it had been on the wall for six months and they were ready to move it. It wasn't scratched up, happy about that. I bought it, knowing they had a return policy. I first A/B'd it against other guitars in GC. Then, I took the guitar to other music stores and A/B'd it against others, including a mint Advanced Jumbo. No guitars I played were as good as the J-45, so, I came home with it. Now, for a woody sound playing old blues, it's just stellar. (And great all around, I play many styles of music.) But I can't imagine a J-45 being better than this for the blues. But if it is, I want it! The J-45 TV is consistently touted. I've never played one. I wonder if it's better than this. I have googled to find the differences and am left confused. Is it adi top, hot hide glue and scalloped bracing? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
