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.

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.
Excerpt: Warm dreadnaught sound but with adequate sparkle and high end, sounds great both acoustically and plugged in. I compared to Takamine, Seagull, Washburn, Fender, Martin Sigma, and found that you would need to at least double the price to get comparable sound.
Summary: You can't beat the quality of sound at this price. I have bought more expensive guitars in the past and have not been as happy as I am with this guitar. Not to mention it has a great look, but the action up and down the neck is very smooth.
