My Cedar topped JK Customs are LOUD. Folks sometimes asked me where my amp was, back when I had unamped gigs. I can hit them as hard as I want with thumb and fingerpicks. No break up, but I will occasionally get flamenco style snare drum effects due to the fairly low action I prefer.

And, John selected through a LOT of top sets, braces with Adi, uses hide glue, and is building one monster HOSS at a time.

YMMV
