Picked up a used A25J on eBay last week and what an eye-opener! I had always enjoyed nylon strings on a classical but that kind of neck just doesn't work for my style in blues, folk etc. This A25J has a really easy neck which I find feels very natural and relaxed to play. It's a responsive instrument and has quite an impressive projection. This is good - I owned a Takamine EN60C a few years back which was the same concept although a rather too reserved player for me. I also found a Lowden S22C (think that was the model) had a similar issue. Having played the A25J for a few days, I think I have found something that really works for me. It has a Fishman transducer as well which is very natural sounding. Great stuff!
