GG Signature guitar - shockingly good

I just wanted to share my experience in relation to the superlative Vintage GG Signature guitar (hereafter "VGGS") - I know I am late to the party, but even so I feel the need belatedly to celebrate this fine instrument. As someone who spends far more on guitars than his ability could possibly justify I have owned my fair share of high-end guitars, including vintage Gibsons and Martins. As such I like to think that I know a good guitar when I play one. I have in fact become a bit of a guitar snob, and would not have considered buying an instrument priced in three figures. However when I read the reviews of the VGGS I thought it had to be worth a punt. It turns out to be one of the most enjoyable guitars I have ever played - it is really comfortable, it is resonant, it has a tight, solid bass and trebles that are ringing and assertive without being abrasive. I know it's primarily designed as a fingerpicking guitar but when strummed it produces a fabulously rich sound. Sorry if this all sounds a bit gushing, but I am seriously impressed that such a modestly priced instrument could be this good - so much so that I have just ordered the 'JG' mahogany version as well. Kudos to everyone involved in its production!
