A "Proper" Guitar
By: M. Victor Wickerhauser from St Louis, MO, USA
Your general opinion of this product.
Very pleasing tone, easy-to-play action, nice finish.
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
Extremely well made: perfect joints and flawless finish. It is basically an heirloom that makes beautiful music.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
No pickups on this model, but the tone (with medium SP strings) is nicely balanced right out of the box.
How did the stain or paint job look?
Flawless finish. This was supposedly a "dent and scratch" model, but it has no trace of any flaw. The gloss top over satin sides, back, and neck looked weird to me at first, but I quickly got used to it. Photos don't do the muted sunburst top justice, it is really lovely.
