I've wondered if the custom shop aspect of the guitar was this lovely top, which also carries a more light-brownish hue.

    Regardless of where the top came from on the J-15, it is incredibly responsive from top to bottom - notes literally leap off of it. If your GAD F-40 has any similar characteristics, it's gotta be a winner!
    I can tell you Bobouz this top is super responsive and just light fingerpicking it rings like a bell.. strums beautifully too.. just a great little guitar at a great price. Been enjoying the heck out of her..

    Stormin as Al pointed out I certainly did.. Dan McCarthy ( highly reputable Dallas luthier ) will make / install a new bridge for $150. The crack seems to be stable so no hurry on this end. But even if I did that would have me at $375 invested in the guitar. Still well under value. Especially given itís super clean condition aside from the crack. Just a great find.

    I know it was a joke but it's a little more complicated than one might guess.
    I picked mine just to be able to register, assuming I could just change it later when I came up with a "better" one....but it ain't that easy...and IIRC you'll lose all the posts under your old username besides.
    You can imagine how that makes me feel....
