Basically, this guitar was a clone of the JF55, but constructing a combination splint massive maple and laminated maple back (while the rosewood to 55).
We find the ebony fingerboard, good references, excellent integration of hardware, good frets and fintion in good order. However, I denotes an air of more subtle, as if she had received more care. In any case, the instrument is beautiful. Too bad here too, provided the trunk is not watertight.
 This guild is not only well built, but because, in addition, a very nice impression. The instrument is truly a feast for the eyes and hands and deserves one more point against his colleague.
I find the qualities to me about the JF55. A very good power in all registers (a little less than the J55, but it remains in the top guitars of this type, without being overbearing. Action by rope easy on the length of the handle and a handle broad but thin leaves that quickly take in hand.
 Even without a preamp, it's still perfect.
The F50 incorporates all the qualities of his sister. But a little more settled, more detailed and more accurate / mat in the treble.
The sound always has a warm foundation, the medium is always well ventilated and that side has always beautifully grainy. But the brightness of the roaring JF55 has been replaced by a tendency to sound sharper, more precise. The sound pours less and goes to the essentials.
 I am confident that his qualities appeal to a certain type of guitar. Commonly, it still goes everywhere and remains an instrument of very high level.
This guitar is a wonderful journey. Another offshoot of the JF55 that built its identity on other strengths. More precise, more controlled, it is also more visually beautiful. A little more expensive, she told me that her sister liked least about the noise level. But it is a very personal feeling and which shall not, in any way, prevent another guitarist to find that behavior much better.
Nothing to say, this guitar is a very good investment.
