      Comments about Applause Balladeer Mid Depth Bowl Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      Right out of the box this guitar was ready to play. The only thing I had to do was tune it up and tweak the truss rod a little. The intonation was spot on.

      The guitar sounds good by itself and awesome when I played it through my Fender Mustang V amp head. I'm looking forward to recording some songs with it.
