    What is your opinion of this product?
    Very nice appointments without being too "fancy". I wasn't sure about Trans Black until I saw the spruce and maple and the way the darker color understates some nice grain on these fine pieces of wood...sort of a steampunk vibe going on. This is the first maple backed guitar I've owned, haven't had it long but I like the tone. I have a 1999 J45 and a 2013 LG2 and the best way I know how to compliment these Montana guitars is to say they play and sound like nothing else you can buy new these days. In my experience they sound good out of the box but after about a year these Montana Gibsons really open up acoustically. The build, fit, finish is flawless. The guitar is beautiful and it sounds great. I'll start gigging with it next week and I'm sure with a little age it will only get better. Oh-BIG thanks to American Musical Supply-without that 12 payment plan, workin' dogs like myself could never afford an instrument like these.

    Incredible Guitar
    What is your opinion of this product?
    Bought this in July from AMS and the guitar is beautiful! It has all the big jumbo Gibson sound. I didn't think I'd like the pick up system but was pleasantly surprised with its performance. Other outlets are charging $3,100 for this guitar and it would be worth that all day. I purchased it as a collection piece but can't put it down. Outstanding instrument!
