I recently stumbled into an opportunity to get a new J-200, which is my dream acoustic guitar. I will be getting this guitar from Wildwood Guitars, but I have a couple of questions regarding my options. My top two options are the new 2016 model and the "New Vintage" Wildwood Limited Edition model from a couple years back. Here are the primary differences that matter to me... 2016- Sitka spruce top, gold Grover tuners, L.R. Baggs Anthem pickup, Tusq nut and saddle. http://www.wildwoodguitars.com/products/11755066.php?CategoryID=433&n=18 Wildwood New Vintage- Adirondack spruce top, gold/pearloid Gotoh vintage-style tuners, L.R. Baggs Element VTC pickup, aged bone nut and saddle. http://www.wildwoodguitars.com/products/10985060.php?CategoryID=433&n=3 There are a few other differences, but these are my primary concern. My questions... What are the truly noticeable differences between the Adirondack spruce top from solid Sitka spruce? I know it can vary, but I'm looking for realistic generalizations. How does the VTC pickup compare to the Anthem? This guitar will be plugged into the venue DI 75% of the time, so a great pickup is extremely important to me. It seems the Anthem is superior, but I've heard Gibson chooses the best pickup for each style of guitar. I just don't understand how this works. Which tuners are better for stability and longevity? If I were never gonna plug this guitar in, then I would get the the Wildwood guitar, but I will be plugged in so often that I want this guitar to reflect the craftsmanship and price tag all times. It'd be a damn shame if the guitar doesn't shine due to a pickup system. Advice? Thanks!
