anyone play one? likes/dislikes? played one recently and felt amazing in my hands. what do these go for? just "student" models or quality sounds? She has the hooks in me.:D

I have one and I love it. It was my great-grandmother's - still has the original case and receipt (!!). $106 in 1967 if I remember correctly... :D It's a great sound.

Best,

J

it's indeed a "student" guitar, but unlike the similar-sized lg-0 or nearly identical lg-1, the b-25 had real x-bracing, making it a better sounding guitar.

great info walterw...the size just feels so right. not schooled on the tone characteristics of brace patterns but this little thing just sings top to bottom. it does have 2 cracks on the top that run from the soundhole to the lower bout. they are parallel and @ 2-3 inches apart. looks to have been glued. any other models to look for in this size/brace pattern?
