An Authentic Instrument
This guitar is not a "guitar". It is a professional-grade instrument. It is designed for performance and sound. Plus, it looks so cool, so cool.
The intonation is perfect all the way up the fretboard. The sound of the mahogany plus the red spruce top, is so dynamic and vibrant, that I feel as if the wavelengths emitting from this guitar are creeping into my nervous system whenever I play. A simple major chord played with this guitar is transformed into a 3-dimensional sound, with feeling.
The string tension is perfect. Not too high or too low. The dynamic range is exceptional. If you are a guitarist that pays attention to dynamics, this guitar will suit you well.
The guitar is very light, but not in a way that makes it feel flimsy or pathetic. When you play, you forget you are holding anything but the neck and strings for plucking away.
I can't think of one thing that is wrong with this guitar. The finish is so thin, yet so sure, that you can count the grains with your eyeballs, yet you know they are solidly protected.
I don't know what else to say: This is a top-grade professional instrument. The J-45 TV is a perfect acoustic guitar, delivered perfectly by Sweetwater.
