This guitar is in the kind of condition I do not remember seeing for this model. These J 35 model guitars are great light built but fragile early guitars that also usually sound good too. This guitar is in exceptional condition and I would say the sound is exceptional. I know, I know… every guitar for sale these days has great sound… who am I to doubt those claims. Well I guess I am on trend. This guitar sounds GREAT. I know this model can be found at a lower price. I think it is very uncommon to find one in this condition so I am launching this ad campaign with price based on condition.
