We rarely see these JB 7-string cutaways for sale and, beyond that, this one has two other things going for it: (1) it is in very good condition (some play-wear on the top) and (2) it is from our favorite era of João Batista's work.  If you want both the deep resonance of that low 7th string combined with unencumbered access to the highest notes on the guitar, try this 2006 JB. Note: even the best of JB's guitars sometimes show up in the shop with mediocre tuners and that was the case with this one, so Adam installed a new set of German Rubners.
