This is an amazing guitar, especially considering the price. It is absolutely beautiful, and the fit and finish is top notch. The photos don't really show the beautiful metallic finish of the painted top and matching headstock. The natural wood finished side and back is gorgeous. And it plays great! In addition, the gig bag that it comes with, is well above average. I would call it an excellent gig bag, in fact. Delivery came incredibly fast, in one day, in fact, and arrived in perfect condition. AMS customer service is the best. I ordered it on a Thursday afternoon, and it was delivered by noon on Friday, one day before advertised two day delivery time. (I live fairly close to it's warehouse, I think). Overall, it was an amazing buy, and I like this guitar so much, I am going to order the Redondo in a couple of months, when I pay off this instrument. (yes, these guitars are that nice!) The no credit check payment plan is a great to to acquire these fine instruments easily.
