This is a unbelievably fantastic guitar. I am a very progressive acoustic guitarist and play both fingerstyle and with a pick. This guitar is phenomenal for both purposes. Its bass response is the best I have ever heard and yet it is amazingly sensitive also, producing shimmering sounds when played delicately. It is also superb at handling alternate tunings (especially with the unique saddle designed to support alternate tunings which is included) and I have never had a problem with changes in the neck after playing in "wacky" tunings. I could not recommend this more to anyone who wants a guitar that literally can support any style playing and is very versatile.
This is the single most amazing guitar ever. Incredibly versatile, great for both finger picking and strumming. Tonally, it falls right in between all other guitar, not too deep and not to twangy. It also has the best bass i have ever heard on a guitar. I could not recommend it any more. Get one while they are still around.
