    There's a new You Tube video wherein the illustrious Robben Ford extolls the virtues of a 1965 B-25, stating its his favourite acoustic ever, with the best tone. I have a '66 sharing the skinny neck distinction, which I nonetheless think is just the coolest geetar around. Thus, given such star power, my humble opinion is validated

    I once read an interview with Ford where he talked about how much he liked the early 1960s Gibson necks. I wonder if for an electric guy those thin necks and the narrower nut Gibson (starting in 1965) are just more familiar and comfortable.

    Ford didn't call it a "geetar" did he? (sorry, a pet peeve...)

    My 151 posts pale in relation to your >8,000 posts, therefore you must be correct, so I will rephrase: "git-box". Better?(Sorry-writing style criticism is my pet-peeve!)

    I own a '65 Gibson F-25 and it is the best sounding acoustic I've ever played.

    I owned a '69 Gibson B-25, but sold it because it paled in comparison.

    I wish Robben would have played his B-25 on that video to give us an idea of what he thinks is the best sounding acoustic. I bet that guitar would sound even better if he'd get rid of that ADJ Saddle contraption.
