I had an interesting trade offer today: my sunburst 1962 J-200 for a single-pickup, sunburst 1963 ES-175. The J-200 has a non-original pickguard, some wear, and the solid bridge with tune-o-matic set-up. It's a great rhythm guitar but needs to be hit hard to sound good; I'm mostly a fingerpicker and so it's never really worked for me. The ES-175 is very, very clean; has an early patent-number pickup; and sounds wonderful. The neck is a little smaller than I'd like, but it's very easy to play. It feels more like a circa-’64/’65 neck than a '59 full-carve or a ’61 wide-flat, but it's certainly not a pencil. I've had the J-200 on consignment at a local store here in Canada, looking to get $4K to me. It's been sitting a couple of months. Anyway, I'm on the fence: I like the ES-175 better than the J-200, and it would get a lot more use. But there's something that bothers me about trading old wood for plywood (even if it's old plywood). So I thought I'd poll the Gear Page to see if someone wants to push me one way or another. Your thoughts?
