Not sure whicj one I prfer and they are both a kick to play. But Elvis played a J200 so I kind of like it.

Here's a pic of me at 18 playing my beautiful Gibson Super 400. I don't have that axe anymore but my hair is still exactly the same.

For a boat guitar I take my 1964 Guild D-50. It's kind of big but it's been through the wars with me and its sounds fantastic. It fits nicely on my quarter berth.
The size of the Gibsons is a killer. I nearly bought a Songwriter - slimer and smaller body in general. Kindof a cross between a Martin and Gibson, but didn't like the blend in sound and I never have been a fan of that finish they put on their necks. THe Martin and Taylor finish is a lot faster. Course, lots of people disagree with me. Guess that's why guitars are like recliners...
