Conclusion: I've been playing for 43 years. I have a Martin 00C-16DB, Crafters of Tennessee TN9 resophonic guitar, Hofner acoustic bass, Centaur Acoustic amp, Centaur Bass amp, Peavey Solo Amp, Jay Turser Classic 10 amp, and a Kustom Profile 1 PA system. I really love the way this guitar looks (very retro). It also plays and sounds good. I choose this one over the Washburn HB15 (seems to be better made).
