The other guy's present

Not an LP double cut.. but still. A Very nice Jay Turser acoustic with a built in tuner, abalone inlays, a solid cedar top, all the goodies. Now before people start sharpening their pitchforks, I got references to this guitar from both my Dad (30 years experience) and my classical guitar teacher (40 years experience). It has a very nice sound, too. Full sounding lows and shimmery highs, just what I've wanted. Pics coming tomorrow I hope. My parent's are awesome.

So, it's my belief that tone is in the soap.
Thank you and goodnight.

Yeah, I remember going to the store and pointing to it, saying, "That's the one I'm gonna buy". I had no idea I would get it for Christmas! Pics coming later today I hope.

My computer doesn't have a place for my camera's memory card, but my Dad's does. But his comp has a password. And we're watching LOTR. So it may be a while.

I've had an excellent success rate with every Jay Turser I've seen or played. Very good guitars, and very under-rated.

It's as if it were built for me. The neck isn't to thin or wide, action is just right, the only thing is that it didn't come with a strap peg at the top. But I can fix that. On my old Epi I could not do bar chords very easily, a big drawback. Now it's perfect. I am very pleased with it.

Yeah, I was also attracted to it. It's cool.

That's a really nice looking guitar. It looks like it has some nice inlay work on the top too.
I also like the idea of having a built in tuner. I've played on a couple of acoustics that had them, and it was very convenient. I'm not a fan of those tuners that you have to clip on the headstock or literally stick to the top of the guitar. I'd rather have it built in.
