I've been looking over the specs of the Martin J-40 and it seems to be generally similar in body size. I still haven't decided what to do for binding and now am reconsidering on using the short scale neck that I have because making the laminated/bolt on neck on my first was so much fun as well.
I'm not a builder but I have owned a J40 for about 25 years. A nice guitar but the body is too deep for comfort! I believe the M series was the same top shape but shallower? My J40 would have benefited from a Manzer wedge!
