Excerpt: I'm still amazed at the volume, tone balance and sustain of this little guitar. But most of all I wish I had bought a twelve fret years ago. I admit I was somewhat prejudiced by their size, believing an instrument this small was bound to have a smallish sound. Well, that was a foolish notion and my loss. If you play acoustic blues especially, or folk or folk/jazz, try a twelve-fret - they are just so comfortable and as far as I am concerned, so musical.
