Okay, what drove me nuts when deciding whether or not to buy this guitar was the lack of specs, so here goes:Small body acoustic Folk/ OM style. Standard scale length. Thin comfortable (mahogany?)neck, much easier to play than my Seagull S6. Thinner body than my Seagull. The action out of the box was set fairly low, making it easy to chord. Grover 18:1 tuners. Glossy finish (based on pics I thought it would be satin). Solid Spruce top, laminated Rosewood back and sides with Maple(?) binding. To me the sound is similar to a Yamaha FG730s, but in a smaller package. With the Rosewood back and sides, it puts out nice warm bass and clean highs with good resonant volume. Overall the guitar is really comfortable and easy to play, and nice sounding to my ears (I like the sound of rosewood). Good value for a guitar made with rosewood.
Solid spruce top, rosewood back and sides (not solid), gold Grover 18-1 tuners, mahogany neck with crown headstock (rosewood also), moustache bridge, the binding is a light color wood (like maple) and beautifully sets off the rosewood, the fret board has the small dots that are at the upper side of the fb as you hold the guitar, a very clean look, rosette looks like abalone, has both neck and tail strap lugs, also gold, the inside of the guitar body is as clean as any I've seen. The folk body is smaller, almost like a classical body size. The strings that came on it are D'Addario and have a little rust on the higher three so I guess it has been sitting in a whse, but even with them like that, sound is great. The sound, well it sounds as good as a guitar costing 4 times as much, maybe even more. A little light on the bottom end, but not so much that you would not like the sound, it is very balanced, clear and plenty loud. I would have no problem expecting this guitar to be a great stage player. It is perfect for me to play sitting on the sofa for as long as I like without tiring. The strings that came on it are D'Addario and have a little rust on the higher three so I guess it has been sitting in a whse, but even with them like that, sound is great.
