Cool re the Texan. I love mine. I will have to make an effort to have a hands on with an AJ--darn this thread! In my mind it would logically be the ideal guitar. I don't know the price of a 30s one these days, but I expect what I would find means that many agree with my perception as to its perfection. I just don't get too excited over Martin anything even though I really like my brother's authentic and marquis models -only the AJ gets my motors running.
