    Welcome aboard!

    I can't wait to give the JP70 a go, been a fan of the EBMM version for years but never enough to pay the price for one. This could be very interesting

    That's great you've added a lefty. If I can get my hands on one, I'll be buying it.

    Any thoughts as to the 7 string in lefty?

    That trans green JP70 sounds like it could be a welcome addition to the herd.
