Solid top mahogany sings the blues!
By: Kris Brickey
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
For the price, this is a really cool 12 string. Upon inspection I found it to be well made and the 3-ply pick guard adds a nice touch.
How has it stood up over time?
Just got it.
Your general opinion of this product.
I dig it! Sounds awesome plugged in! Cool that it includes a strap.
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
Neck is very quick on this thing. It's got a narrow body so weight isn't an issue. Action out of the box is just right.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
Because this isn't a big Guild or a Jumbo bodied guitar, You aren't going to get a lot of bassy range out of this unless you plug it in. I really like the on board Fishman EQ. Good bluesy midrange. Highs are very bright.
How did the stain or paint job look?
I love the mahogany. I found one small blemish in the top finish that I am not concerned about as it doesn't affect the sound. And I am probably the only person who will notice it.
How was the action out of the box?
Just how I like it. Low, but no fretting out.
