Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? I have been babying this guitar. But, I have let my nephews play it and it has held up so far. Drop tuning it to drop-D has been a breeze, especially with the onboard tuner. Reliability How has it stood up over time? So far, so great!!! Have had it since Xmas/2011. General Your general opinion of this product. I am a beginner to intermediate player with only a little over a year experience. I've only played electric guitars up until I got this one. First tried this guitar at a shop in Texas when I was looking at getting a Dean, DBZ or Martin guitar. I have a beginner Ibanez (IJX121 Jumpstart...which by the way is a pretty good guitar) and when the salesperson talked me into trying this one, I was pretty much sold on it. Gorgeous instrument, easy to play and sounds fantastic both electric and unplugged. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? It's VERY EASY to play this guitar. I'm still learning so this was very important. Neck is pretty thin, almost like my electric. Very little buzzing. Easy to play clear notes. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? I don't know how to answer this except that the sound is very clear. The high notes sound great, not too bassy (if that's a word). Finish How did the stain or paint job look? GORGEOUS finish. The main reason I wanted this guitar was because of the look. I didn't want a boring looking acoustic. It's definitely turned heads so far when people see it!!! Action How was the action out of the box? The action was perfect for me right out of the box. I like low action like my electric guitars. This is an acoustic, so I did not expect it to be exactly like my electrics. But, it's pretty close. :)
Hard to believe this is discontinued. It is terrific

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Seems to be very well made. I hope it is as dependable forever as it has been so far. Reliability How has it stood up over time? Great for the 3 weeks I've had it. General Your general opinion of this product. Super Great Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? action is fast and comfortable. The guy that replied that the neck was "thick" didn't receive one like mine. The neck is thinner than on my 68 Tele. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Tone seems great at most settings. I like Full and it fills the bill. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? I thought it was a little gaudy but changed my mind after hearing all the compliments on it's good looks Action How was the action out of the box? Great
awsome for the money

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Top notch gold plated Grover tuners,Flamed QUILTED MAPLE TOP,BACK AND SIDES,MAPLE NECK WITH ROSEWOOD FINGERBOARD AND MOTHER OF PEARL DOT INLAYS AND ROSETTE.FISHMAN AEROBLEND PREAMP W/MIC P/U ALONG WITH A BRIDGE TRANSDUCER ALONG WITH A MIC TRIM CONTROL LOCATED INSIDE THE BATT. COMPARTMENT TO ADJUST THE BALANCE BETWEEN THE 2 TO YOUR LIKEING,VERY HANDY ADJUSTMENT TO HAVE.IF YOUR LOOKING TO STEP UP TO A BETTER GUITAR BUT DONT WANT TO SPEND A $1000.00 THIS IS YOUR GUITAR,IT'S THAT GOOD. Reliability How has it stood up over time? very well built and luxary appoinments make this guitar a real champ.I mean the thing even comes with Ivorex@ saddle and nut for better sound tranfer to the sounding board.How many guitar makers chose to use such fine componets you'll find on this guitar General Your general opinion of this product. A much deserved Ten.This guitar far outshines even the Takamine EF341SC series guitars in tone,playiability and finish.It arrived with EXP coated strings which I never saw the need for, but when I playd,the stings just sang out with this nice well balanced tone and projection ican see what the facination for these strings are now.I own a Takamine EF181SC 12string guitar already, a real nice instrument with excellent tone and projection and that 12 string sound,just buetifull.This A300E is even on sale for a clearance price of $329.99,NOT BAD FOR a $799.99 GUITAR ams WAS SELLING FOR $499.99.aT $329.99 I'M CONSIDERING GETTING A 2ND ONE JUST TO HAVE AS A POSSIBLE REPLACEMENT.AS I SAYED THIS IS ACLEARANCE ITEM BECAUSE THE GUITAR IS NO LONGER GOING TO BE MADE.TOO BAD,TOO BAD THEY CANT LEAVE A GOOD THING ALONE,I MEAN THIS GUITAR EVEN HAS BALANCED XLR OUTPUTS FOR CRYIN OUT LOULD,HOWS THAT FOR THE STUDIO MUSICIAN TO HAVE ,NO MORE DIRECT BOXES HASSLE,DIRECT TO THE BOARD,AWESOME. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Very light wieght ,a must for concert players.The neck is so easy to adapt to it was scary.The controls sit about half way back from the top of the arch and presented a very small learning curve to use them fast and efficiently Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? The tone and projection will sell you on this guitar and for the price you can get it for on clearance it would be a big mistake to let this one go w/o even trying it out,you wont be disappointed with the guitar or most importantly the price,it's a steal at $329.99 Finish How did the stain or paint job look? The finish of my guitar is Vintage Violen and it's just the most transparrent gloss finish to it I'm making sure nothing happens to the finish of this guitar.The first thing I get out of people when I show them my new guitar is, It has such a nice Quilted Flamed Maple Vintage Violen finish to it.It's the first thing they notice and all have agreed it has great tone and projection. Action How was the action out of the box? The action was just perfect out of the box,it even came deliverd in tune.THE ACTION IS EFFORTLESS AND THIS THIN NECK MAKES MAKING HARD CHORDS EVEN EASIER.
