Spotlight on the slope-shouldered dreadnought

Instruments at The Music Emporium

Several of us here on the TME staff are continuously on the hunt for that grail-level Banner J-45. Trouble is, and we say this as some of their biggest fans, those guitars can be finicky and more than a little inconsistent. And obviously, it's a hunt to find the one that's best for you among what's already pretty slim pickings. 

We've been playing through the best of what the small-shop world has to offer these last couple weeks, and thought we'd gather them into a collection ... just in case you (like us) happen to be looking for a placeholder until your ship comes in. Feel free to drop us a line if you've got questions about a specific guitar!
