I had the pleasure of playing Jim's Rosebud at our last show. I have to say, this guitar is fantastic in just about every way. The neck and frets are perfect, I couldn't find anything in terms of the playability that I had any issues with. I'd buy one today if I had the money, no questions asked.

Thanks Jim!

This is not soundboard audio but you get the idea with the tone etc.

I realize now after reading some of the intonation posts that to achieve proper intonation AND the higher Garcia style action, the low E needs to be further back that normal, so it may have been intonated after all!
