I bought a discounted blemished model (discoloring of the "purfling," which looked just fine), and have had it for two weeks. I have been playing it extensively. The guitar is a bit quiet when played acoustically, but has a wonderful tone. It sounds good plugged in, too. It is quite handsome. The tuners are smooth, and the neck is straight. The adjustable truss rod works, and is easy to use. It is rugged and well built. I think it should come with a hard case (It was easy to find one.) My only complaint was that the setup was very poor. After wrestling with the guitar awhile, I used a belt sander to lower the saddle height. I also bought some feeler gauges and files, and cut the nut grooves deeper. It now plays very well, and sounds wonderful. I put Ernie Ball Silk and Steel Soft strings on it. Bottom line: this is a very nice guitar, which will withstand most thermal, mechanical, and humidity stresses. It sounds very nice, but is not a loud instrument when unplugged. If my instrument was representative, you should plan on spending either time or money for a good set-up. (About $60.00 for the labor is typical where I live) I feel the instrument was a very good value, and may even become my favorite guitar.
Carbon fiber sounds surprisingly good. Crisp, clear, articulated, but distinctive. I like it. This isn't the highest priced guitar so features like pickups and finish could be better, but, builtin tuner, truss rods etc are a lot for the money. Plugged in it seems to needs some tweaking for feedback and finger picking. A solid, durable guitar with a nice gig bag. Nice to have something that is immune to temperature and humidity.
