Was about to pull the trigger on a J15 to add to the arsenal for some smaller tap room gigs and such around town, until I saw the HP415 recently introduced. I've played the J15 multiple times but cannot locate a HP415 locally. Can anyone highlight any huge differences or advise on personal experiences? Appears tonal woods/neck/etc all the same, possibly just the J shape vs the cutout from what I can tell.
i haven't seen a HP415, either, but it's supposed to be slimmer. me, i'd get the J15 - it's great, and i've never heard a slimmer guitar that didn't have a little less beef in the tone.
Those HPs have only just been released so I'm guessing it'll be a while before any turn up in stores.
