My ears generally prefer Adi over Sitka (I own 3 Adi topped guitars).

Best, B
Interesting. I prefer the sound of the 000-18 because it's crisper and I hear better note separation. The CEO-7 sounds a bit muddled on the low end to my ears.

Yet hear (pun intended) I agree with you. That authentic sounds like a great recording guitar.
