I have a NYC 5-24 and a LG-5. There is no difference in the build quality between the two - both are pretty near perfect! There is a big difference in sound between the two (obviously) and in the comparisons I have done between the Sadowsky Jazz 5's with singlecoils and the AC, the Sadowsky is much more modern and the AC channels that 60's jazz sound. Neither is better - both are great!
Music is the movement of sound to reach the soul for the education of its virtue. - Plato
