Chicago Music Exchange. Yesterday. I have a Larrivee LO3R that I’ll be selling now. The J-45 was outstanding. Second guitar from the camera..... Top.... Full gloss. I though the walnut back was beautiful.... It played very well and projected very well. Our drummer was standing across from me and his face lit up when I played fingerstyle. It was the only guitar that he carried on about after listening. The neck isn’t too fat but it’s a handful. I like a fatty and I thought it played very well. The tone and volume hidden in the soundhole. You’d never know that it has electronics which I love. I’m a K&K Pure guy. I very much dislike plastic boxes cut into the upper bout on a wooden guitar. I’m a Martin guy and I’ve never wanted a Gibson Acoustic. This one got me. It’s a pretty guitar and it sound great.
