    I own a JB player ac/el. It has exceptional tone for a budget instrument and I've received alot of compliments on its look and tone when I play it out. Soundmen seem to like how it sits in the mix, too. Only problem is the unwieldy shape can get a little uncomfortable on the arm. The pre-amp is no Fishman, but does the job. I dropped mine and damaged the neck joint, so the intonation is out! I'll have to incur an expensive repair, so for now, I only play it at an occaisional unplugged rehearsal or campfire jam.
    All in all, a great acoustic/electric for the money, fun to play, sounds better than many $800 ac/el's I've tried, and looks very cool on stage!
