A very fine instrument overall with a beautiful tight resonant tone. The first one sent to me had a lose "G" string tuner that vibrated when strummed, I was suprised that so expensive of an instrument had cheap plastic cast tuning knobs. I also saw notable craftsmenship differences in the second one that was sent to me and the two others I had played at the local music store, from cosmetic differences to the fitting and joining of major components, yet that all aside they all possessed a unmistakable clear and unique sound quaility. Very nice thin lacquer finish that does not hinder tone and a beautiful silky cedar neck that enhances playability. Frets were not well polished but intonation was good. The flame maple back and sides are stunning and lend themselves to the overall tight and clear tonality of this guitar. Initially when I plugged in the sound was cutting in and out but after exercising the phase switch back and forth the problem went away. Very sensitive Fishmen mic and pick-up combo that can be blended to taste. If running it through your electric guitars effects (even Clean) it is prone to feedback, I bought the Fishman Nylon Imaging pedal and that corrected the feedback issues. For a thin-line body the sound is amazing and when plugged in it really comes alive. The guitar did not come with a case ? To qualify for the life-time warrenty you have to purchase a Humicase and send in the receipt along with your warrenty paperwork. Finally the guitar is pricey but it's biggest asset is it's tonal clarity.
This guitar is awesome! The 2" neck is perfect for chord changes or tough 16th note melody lines. The neck is very smooth and is the best I have played on by far. The cutaway feature is a great feature for playing in the high registers. It is not the "professional look" but I value playability over traditional looks. One unusual feature is that this guitar has both a danelectro pickup and a mic. The pickup sounds great through an acoustic or classical amplifier, but the mic is tricky to use. Unless the notch, frequency, and blend features are adjusted just right, there will be a ton of feedback. It's not too hard to fool around with, but I mainly use the pickup because it has a better sound.This guitar is perfect for all classical guitar players, and has the best craftmanship and features of all I have tried!
this guitar has some amazing tone, but is very pricy. the electronics worked okay on mine for awhile until the pickup went bad. the mic was very good though. i hardly ever use the pickup cause its noisy and rattly. also, if you are a tall person, the thinline body style will not be good for you. it is hard to find a comfortable position to play in, at least for me. i bought the guitar because the fretboard plays so well. it has to be one of the best out there for that. so if you want a new fashioned classical guitar w/a good mic, then its for you. but if you want a standard guitar with a good pickup, then think again.
Like I said, FANTASTIC! I just bought this the other day and love so many things about it. Maybe the greatest aspect of this guitar is the playability. It makes noodling around and sliding up and down the neck great fun. The ebony fingerboard also helps its amazing looks. The flamed maple back and sides are also great. I admit I was reluctant to buy it because of the thin body, which I thought would kill the acoustic sound, but when I played it, I found that the tone is literally as good as a full-body classical guitar (not strong projection though). When it is plugged in, however, it really shines. The mic is powerful and deep, but the pickup gets too much of the bridge sound for me. When the two are blended together, there really is a unique sound. But beware of feedback! It can be a tad hard to manage. Go out and try one! See if you love it as much as I do.
This piece of art is by far one of the best acoustic guitar. the feeling is just awesome. You the bridge is exactly where it should be, also the neck is exactly how it should be. Sound wise is just simply surprising despite the fact that's so thin. When pluged into a amp is so detailed that u dont feel like you have it though an amp (depends what amp you use it through) This a 5 in all aspects.
