Comments
Guild Generally better clarity and dynamics than VJC but the first piano solo on Guild is at a much lower level than on VJC. The second solo pretty much matches so I'm not sure whether there was some gain riding going on with VJC or something wrong with the Guild source.

ARK Virtually identical to VJC
