Overall Rating
Playability and Feel
unparalled quality
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
I bought this a year ago , I paid $1,699.00 I wish I waited ..It is incredible, the sound is bright,and warm, and I would highly recommend it , It is comparable to guitars almost double in price. The different pickups are cool as well . Playing acoustic , through Pa or an amp, there are 9 or 10 different options
How has it stood up over time?
stays in tune , it is a work horse
Your general opinion of this product.
For the price . It is second to none. Every time I pick it up is a joy.
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
easy controls, very playable neck
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
Bright and warm
How did the stain or paint job look?
I love the top , it is gorgous, The sides and back are OK, but I think thats the reason the guitar is 1,600 instead of 2,600
How was the action out of the box?
