Both stock instruments. The J-type is strung E-C and is the easiest 5-string I’ve played. 

The Recurve was my first and the tonal palette is huge with Alan’s DFM pre-amp.

They are both Very nice indeed,  can I ask how the J type sounds , I’ve never played an ACG , and was debating adding one to my collection , I love everything about that J 🙂

Morning,

The J has SB70 Alnico single coil pickups with the East Uni-Pre amp with Active/Passive switching.

It has that classic 70s Jazz sound. It’s light for a 5-string too. 

Alan is a good chap to deal with; always very helpful and a mine of information. 

You won’t be disappointed 😀

Shaun

Had a few moments to myself today, a real rarity, so rather than having a wee noodle, I took some shots of my amazing ACGs. Enjoy...

It's tough, I can't deny it.

I tend to rotate through them, but try and give them all a good play as often as I can.

The Finn SC 6er is my darling though, if I could only have one, it would have to be that one.

It's called "Fractal Birch", it's a man made figured effort made by laminating lots of wood together, as far as I'm aware. Alan could give you more accurate info on it I expect.

I rather like it myself 😎
