Ok I searched for a decent review but only found some sound clips and and recordings that don’t give this guitar justice. First impressions are it's super light but feels unfinished. That faded they talk about cutting cost feels like raw wood like they just skipped out on finishing the guitar. Playability is flawless. Perfect right out of the box. The neck is a bit chunky but I like it. Sound is huge bold yet very even though out. From highs to lows and present mids it is very well balanced. Tye j35 has a very unique voice. In my honest opinion it’s a touch harsh like a D18 jangly twang with a Gibson growl. If I grabbed this off the rack and jammed on it before buying it I’d say it would be a tough one. I’m liking some qualities but not everything says this is the guitar for me. As far as value goes I believe this one is over priced by a lot actually. Would I order it again after playing it no. Don’t get me wrong it has its a great guitar just not one I’d go looking for.
