Summary: The Sound from this guitar is awesome. I have the vintage violin and the picture on the web site doesn't do it justice. A beautiful guitar. Well made. Acoustically it compares with much higher cost instruments. Right out of the box the action was great. The electonics makes you want to plug up. Guitar would be cheap at twice the price.
Summary: For the cost, this guitar is a pretty good deal, though I was disappointed with the finish right out of the box. Every picture on every website shows a striking sunburst finish, but mine (I got the black) is barely visible; it looks like a plain black guitar unless the light hits it just right. This is a shame, because a special finish is partly what you pay for. I briefly contemplated sending it back because of this.

Excerpt: Excellent tone .I strum some country songs unplugged n it responds perfectly.I have used it plugged in for gigs and the pre amp does struggle for volume compared to my friends Yamaha but just adjust amp to suitno problem..
Excerpt: This is definitely a slightly thinner tone, not a deep bass sound. Personally I like that; great for strumming percussive playing. Probably less effective for fingerstyle playing, since the bottom can be a little weak. Similarly just a little thin for recording.
Summary: My step-brother owns this guitar and says he wouldn't trade it nothing in the world. He loves his "one in a million" though he calls his baby. I have to agree with him there nothing like it in the world of guitars. I own an Ibanez also and I wouldn't trade mine for nothing either.
