Wow! Congrats. Can’t argue with either one of those fabulous choices. Wife and banker will just have to adjust. :-) Enjoy!
Best,
Jayne

Congrats on the awesome guitar fiddles. One thing I’ve noticed about the J-45 is that while it has attitude and sounds amazing strummed, it actually sounds quite good fingerpicked too.

They’re different guitars. I like the springy resonance of the short-scale J-45 for fingerpicking and strumming, and the oh-so-solid articulation of the D-18.

J.R., I thought I was the only one who remembered that song. But I agree with you!

Congratulations, OP! Those are two beautiful guitars.

I'm hoping you can still outrun your wife and banker. Meanwhile, for your own safety, don't buy the former anything she can hit you with until she calms down.
