Comfortable, Enjoyable Guitar
By: David D from Murphysboro, IL, USA
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
I personally find this to be a well constructed guitar, with warm resonant sound at a very reasonable price.
Your general opinion of this product.
I like the 'natural' satin finish, it is pleasing to the touch, and doesn't smudge up with fingerprints like the heavily lacquered instruments. Handsomely made. I never tire of playing this guitar.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
The tone of this guitar is warm and rich. I have no complaints. As a local songwriter, I write country songs and ballads that sound nice with the quality of tones produced. The pickup takes a little getting used to. I played it live, and when I got it to the desired level during performance, when I stopped, the pickup was so 'hot' that I got feedback. But after some minor tweaking, we were able to get the maximum sound from the guitar without the feedback.
How did the stain or paint job look?
I love the finish on my guitar. The natural satin finish is very pleasing to the eye. As corny as it may sound, I feel almost as though I am holding and playing a work of art. My next purchase is going to be a hard case so that I may preserve the quality finish. I intend this to be the last guitar I will ever need.
