First off, thanks to Matt and the staff at Sweetwater. Great service all across the board. The guitar is visually stunning. The sound is ,well, wonderful. Big low end, chimey mids that ring out, and a sweet high end. Its in a class all its own when compared to the Martin and Taylor guitars I've played. I'm not slamming either company, the J45 is just wonderfully different. The action is perfect.. It sounds great using a pick and finger picks equally as well. A great all around guitar. Its a keeper. Thanks again Sweetwater for your prompt and courteous service.
