Hey Tom, sorry about my post referencing the looks of this guitar... I am sure it sounds great! (thank you for your kind response to my vitriolic post...).

Background: I have been working in China since 2009, and February 1st of this year was to be my last day before retiring and returning to the States. . Unfortunately, due to the virus, the entire country was shut down on this day, and I can't return home until a vaccine is ready.... 18 months? So, I am occasionally cranky, and this particular night, I was fueled by the locally distilled Bai Jiu, a clear sorghum based spirit which is 120 proof!

I first played a Tak in SF, in 1996, and was stunned by it. In the process of raising two daughters, I never bought one of my own until 2017, when I bought a CP4-DC-OV.  BUT, upon returning home, (whenever that may be), I will certainly but another. Either a CRN-TS1, a Glenn Frey or a P5JDC.

 

Best Regards,

P.S. Thanks for your earlier reply about the cedar top vs. spruce... it was very informative, and haven't completely ruled out the P3D, until I have played it.

So, you take beautiful spruce and flame maple, and you paint it UGLY black? no comprendo.... it doesn’t matter how good this guitar sounds, I could never buy something this ugly and unnatural. What is wrong with the look of spruce and maple? I have a CP4 DC-OV, and wane a jumbo, but cannot buy this because it is butt ugly... what is wrong with the look of wood?

This is a brown sunburst (like a tobacco burst) you CAN see the grain! It's not black. We also make a P7JC, P5JC and a P1JC in the pro series, which are natural finish, as well as a GJ72CE NAT in the G series line.
