For those who wondered about the difference in size between the Martin Jumbo and the standard OM size, here's a pic of the two Jumbos with my Larrivee OM-05 (which is identical in dimensions to a Martin OM):

Interesting! When I think of a jumbo, the Gibson J-200 comes to mind.

Leftee - all you need to know is that the good ones are expensive... so don't even let yourself get started! (I'm *this close* to ordering another one that I thought was no longer available [Limited Edition] but still is - argh!)

There are exceptions. My Wechter Grand Concert is a keeper at only $385.

Mike,

You’re right! That is all I need to know. :-P

Rocky,

That is a great looking guitar! I’ve always heard that those are great bang for the buck. What’s the neck like?

Eric, I guess I'd call the neck a medium. It's not too thin but not fat either.

Mike, it's an LR Baggs humbucker.
