Little late posting this but I finally recieved my custom order L-09 from Johnny a few weeks ago and boy was it worth the wait...I'd owned 5 l-bodies previously (05 standard, 09 standard, 1979 09, l-11, and an 09 w/ Englemann/walnut and while they were all wonderful for different reasons I'm happy to say it was worth spec'ing one out!
The woods: Handpicked "moon spruce" (from Crema, so probably much like the Italian Alpine), Madagascar rosewood b/s, koa binding throughout, Indian rosewood headstock overlay
The tone: Of my previous models it is definitely closest in tone to my old l-11 which was Italian spruce and Indian b/s with the 70's-style bracing. Big bottom end to this guitar and tons of overtones that make it a completely different beast than my l-09 standard which was Sitka/Indian. The coolest thing in my opinion is the swelling quality the natural harmonics and single note runs have...there's like a built-in reverb when you dig in that I'll try to provide some video of here soon for all the Indian vs. Madagascar and Sitka vs. Euro spruce debaters XD
Anyways here's some pictures and a video link! https://youtu.be/K9UvJUUsjsc
