"Look at this finish - it's beautiful! It took us quite a while to find the right tones for this color, but I think this thing looks fantastic on stage. This guitar has the JSA body shape and the top is the solid englemann spruce top. That, of course, creates that beautiful sound. It's very responsive, great tone sounding wood. The JSA20 has got solid Rosewood on the back and sides - it's a beautiful pattern. The neck is a mahogany neck. The JSA line has a very comfortable neck for players of the electric guitar; I think they'll feel right at home. And you can play up way the neck - the intonation is fantastic! That transition from electric guitar to acoustic in the middle of a show is a piece of cake because of the way we built the neck and the feel of the fretboard. That's a very important point for me. In the JSA20, we've got the Fishman Acoustic Matrix pickup system and also the Fishman Aura Pro preamp, with presets by me. Of course, it's got an Onboard tuner, which is really cool. This is something that has been a new change for us in the JSA line. I thought that they built this guitar so good that I don't mind them putting a little hole up here and sticking some electronics there. That was my first concern with the original JSA, but I think that we've evolved the design of the guitar. So now we have this unit in it that sounds fantastic. We've got chrome Grover Tuners on it. They're fantastic, very accurate and got great tension on them. It also has Abalone rosette and body binding. The bridge and the fretboard are ebony. I've always liked that look as well as the sound. I think these guitars actually come strung up, so they use D'Addario EXP strings - which are the best!"more
