Default Under The Radar?

Hi everyone, just took delivery of a new Martin JDP2 about an hour ago. Has anyone else out there played one? Last year I got myself a new Martin Grand J12-40E Special my 5th 12-string. I also have a Maton, Taylor 355, Guild F-412 and a Japanese Morris B-50 made of Brazilian Rosewood. The Martin Grand really makes all the others sound "thin", well, not so much with the Guild, but it is my ultimate 12-string. I went looking for a 6-string to compliment the Grand but not actually match the tone. So I searched for guitars not made with the same Spruce/Rosewood combination as the Grand. Found the Diane Ponzio signature Martin, Alpine Spruce top, Mahogany back and sides, J size body, slotted headstock, forward shifted bracing and large sound-hole. It is amazing! Have I got 2 Martin models that slipped unnoticed under the radar? Production of the grand only ran for 2009/10/11 and only 231 were ever built.
