yeah, the pre Fender models were are the best. i had a first year one that was just beautiful. of course an SP2 fell on it at a gig and broke the headstock off but the split went down behind the nut, missing the fingerboard so i got her fixed up and she still sounds amazing. but yes, you could say i definitely love mine, otherwise i would have thrown it in the trash.
I own a real low serial number Road King, the dreadnought sized Chief. It has the most comfortable neck ever. I get compliments everywhere on its tone.
The singer from my old band and I went to weekly open mics for a long time and every night a random person would say how blown away they were. Not bad for $500 accoustic. Its one of the few guitars that I will keep forever.
Don't know a whole lot about its bigger brothers, as I haven't played 'em much, but my P-28 Papoose is one of the best gear purchases I ever made. It sounds so fine alongside another guitar and records so well.
