"I also read quite a bit that Dreads were a bit boomy and I figured that the MJ body shape lent itself to sound more balanced and yes, I find it great for fingerstyle work! I'd always been a strummer and still am but I really like the challenge…"

"Also, I got the MJ because it felt and sounded like what I wanted to learn/play more fingerstyle with. I've got a lot to learn, but I think the MJ will fit nicely into that style... What do you think? I just noticed that you like to play…"

"well, the Dread has solid Rosewood, and both have different body sizes/finishes,  so tonally they are a bit different. When strumming the rosewood seems resonant heavy to me. Kind of like the bass notes tumble and thunder about as they mix with…"

"Hi Cameron, I've got a Tric case for it, they cost $79.00 Can. and am generally happy with it. The guitar doesn't fit in there like a glove which is a bit disappointing but you could allways  wrap the guitar body in a heavy sheet to…"

"Hi Ian. What are you using for a case for your MJ? I recently purchased on and the gig bag/case that the store threw in for discount seems overly tight to me on the lower bout, with lots of wiggle room for the upper bout. Plus it doesn't seal…"

I also read quite a bit that Dreads were a bit boomy and I figured that the MJ body shape lent itself to sound more balanced and yes, I find it great for fingerstyle work! I'd always been a strummer and still am but I really like the challenge and phraseing you get from a "hand picked" song. I use "You Tube" a lot and have found really good lessons and ideas from it, it helps immensely. I'm currently doing a lot of Joni Mitchell and Neil Young covers, both artists use regular and alternate tunings along with strumming/finger picking  in the song so it's a  fun and relatively easy mix!

If you are looking for a good tune that uses both strumming and finger picking in standard tuning look up Neil Young "Tell Me Why" on "You Tube" and you'll find a couple of lessons to choose from.

Hi Cameron,

I've got a Tric case for it, they cost $79.00 Can. and am generally happy with it. The guitar doesn't fit in there like a glove which is a bit disappointing but you could allways  wrap the guitar body in a heavy sheet to take up some of the "sloppiness"!

Tonally, how does your Dread compare to the MJ? My other guitar is a Simon and Patrick Folk which has a more compact sound to the MJ.

Ian
