Playability and Feel
Get this baby while you still can! Wow!
Your general opinion of this product.
I am a Martin enthusiast so I was skeptical about going with any other brand. I know Gibson, but when you are spending real $ on a quality guitar, it is hard to change your preferences. What caught my eye about this model was not only is it a classic J45; but with Koa back and sides, a Honeyburst Top, gold Grover tuners, it is a Custom Shop model and LIMITED TO JUST 75 MADE! Gibson, you now have my attention! So after a month and a half of looking at videos and doing research, I HAD to own this model.
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
This product is EXTREMELY well made and the attention to detail is flawless.
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
The neck feels great and man does this guitar sound wonderful! I was blown away. I was expecting, well be disappointed because it wasn't a Martin. Then I tuned her up, took a strum of a G chord and was like "WOW!."
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
The tone is, well...dreamy. It sounds loud, very well balanced, nice bass response and just sings!
How was the action out of the box?
Action was great. The strings I am not so sure of however, as they were a little stiff. May move to some Elixer's.
How did the stain or paint job look?
This guitar is a work of art! The Koa is flat out amazing looking (and smelling) and the honeyburst finish makes this thing museum worthy! Couldn't be happier how sweet this baby looks. And the little appointments like the Gold Grover tuners, "Limited" trust rod cover and such make this so cool! and oh - it comes with a 8.5x11 Certificate of Authenticity stating it is a Certified Limited Edition, signed by the master luthier (I guess) and has the guitar serial number on it. One of 75 units made! How cool is that?!!!!!!!!!
How has it stood up over time?
Just got it.
