I'm typically not a big fan of the CJ body from any builder, but this guitar would definitely change my mind. I'm sounding more like Ray LaMontagne than I ever have in my life. You can really hear the varnish finish on this one. It has that mellow, mid-rangy punch of a Gibson, but a little more airy and resonant. Would make a kick-butt strummer, but it handles finger style and lead work very well too, with a strong, clear voice. Also, I think this is my first guitar in the shop with a wenge fretboard, and it looks awesome. Plays great - I left the action just a hair below 7/64" for strumming. Comes with original hardshell case.

Cosmetically, this guitar is in excellent condition, with only very minor signs of handling.
