I was really torn between the F47R and the CV-1. I loved the understated beauty of the CV-1 but I also loved the traditional appointments of the F47R. In the end, the CV-1 won out. I am very happy with this decision. There is not one flaw on this guitar. It's a thing to behold. Some very talented luthiers working for Guild. The Madagascar Rosewood used for the headstock, fingerboard and bridge has very striking figure. The Indian Rosewood on the back and sides is equally easy on the eyes. Sound is what's important though and the CV-1 does not dissapoint. Not sure if it's the new neck joint or not but the sound and playability is fantastic. VERY loud. It really projects. Strong bass, great mids and a sparkling high end. Very even. Does not favor either end of the spectrum which is a Guild trait from way back. The 1 3/4 nut width makes playing a joy. Plenty of room. The guitar ships with the pickguard removed which is a nice option. The new Guild pickguard is a matter of taste. I happen to like it but some folks prefer the traditional style. This way you can order one from Guild and customize your CV-1. Also comes with a very nice hardshell case. This guitar is a winner. A great blend of the traditional and technological. I can't put this guitar down. I count the hours in the office until I can go home and play it. It's that nice. GREAT JOB GUILD!
