Outstanding sound & value

By RivTC

from Traverse City, MI

This guitar has been fantastic. Purchased from this site two weeks ago and have not put it down. Sound is great, both plugged and unplugged. Finish and workmanship are exceptional for a guitar under $*** new. We'll have to see how it holds up over time.

I bought this mainly after playing it in the store and being blown away by the aesthetics. I didn't have much time to get a feel for the actual instrument, but I took a risk and brought it home. The playability is incredible. I usually string my electric with heavy strings and high action, and I found this guitar to play a lot easier with 13s. The sound has a lot of high-mids and mids, so don't expect the same tone as you'd hear from a dreadnought. The electronics are fantastic, and you can get some quality tones even direct to the board.


Amazing Value!!!

By Jason-sTzFz

from San Diego, CA

I just got this guitar a few days ago, and it sounds incredible. I owned a Martin (auditorium series) for about 3 years and this one seriously sounds better. The tone is bright and the feel is nice if you like smaller bodied guitars; also, the dark wood is gorgeous and distinguishes this one from other acoustics. Great value!

I just bought this guitar about a week ago. I played many high end taylors and martins before looking at this guitar. I loved the feel of it, the price was great, and the body size is really comfortable. I play a lot of bar gigs and have been using this guitar for the past week. I love the sound of it on an amp, the guitar has a very distinctive sound, a little higher pitched than a dreadnought. It works great for the type of music I play (mostly country) and I highly recommend it. They only drawback I found with it is the top isn't solid, but it still sounds amazing.

Warm full bodied tone, not quite as loud as a dred, but that is to be expected as the size is smaller. Perfect for fingerstyle, flatpicks, or a Jazz Fusion Guitar Trio thing. More similar to the tone of a taylor, but much warmer.


Nice guitar for the money

By bshpmark

I bought this guitar yesterday. The looks are what caught my attention. The sound and playabiity sold me. Easy to play. Not the volume of a dred but good nonetheless. There are two quirks that are bothersome to me. This came with a strap button on the bottom of the heel. The problem is that the heel is slightly recessed from the back of the guitar which makes the strap not fit well at all. The strap pulls off the button easily and down goes the guitar. I may move the strap button to the side of the heel. Second, the tuner is slightly off. WHen the tuner says you are on center, you are actually slightly flat according to my Korg tuner. I have read this in another review as well. I probably should not let these little quirks bother me but they do. I may return the guitar.


great guitar

By hundred_hippies

from Wyoming

i have played this guitar for about a year now, and i have really fallen in love with it. it have a great rich sound and is well built. it is a really beautiful guitar as well (the picture dosent do it justice). The only suggestion i have is to get a humidifier if you live in dry areas like i do. the dao wood does weird things when it gets to dry. all in all a great guitar though.


Great Guitar

By StevieRayVaughnFan2006

from Michigan

I just bought this guitar, and I am amazed, its playability is just mind blowing. It has the greatest sound ever, and with the built in electronics it sounds terrific. I usually play a 1964 gibson acoustic, but now that I have this guitar, I'm gonna retire the gibson. This guitar is just great!


Love it.

By LPWoman

I've had this guitar for about 3 months. I love it. The sound is good, but it is a folk-style guitar so you're not going to get the same sound as a dreadnought. But the size makes it a little easier to play if you are a smaller person (I'm 5'6"). Tuners are good. It rarely goes out of tune. The weather is going to affect the wood, so be aware of that. The electronics are very good for the price range (assessment of friends that have much more experience than I).It has strap buttons on the end and on the heel of the neck. It doesn't have inlays except for the 12th fret, but there are dots on the side of the fretboard that are sufficient. It looks great, sounds great, and is affordable--2 thumbs up


Incredible Sound

By Matthew-Qcnsr

from Virginia

This guitar gets amazing sound. I've owned it for just over a year now and it is definately worth it. I've used it for a few gigs and for jamming out at home. It has a very thin folk style body which is very nice and makes it easier to play. But don't get me wrong, it still gets a very full and bright sound, yet it isn't too airy. I can't say enough good things about this guitar. The only problems I have with it are I don't like the electronics too much, they are complicated but if you are into that then I guess it is a plus. Also the fret board and the back of the neck show some signs of wear. I don't think they are getting much worse though, and it is hardly noticeable.


Don't let the

I played this guitar at a local shop and loved it. Good action, plays great, and it is comfy to hold. I have an old acoustic very similar in size and don't play folk music at all. In fact, I don't see the need for dreadnought size bodies. These sized guitars usually just sound better all aoround. Good note definition and chords run together well. I use to play a dreadnought, but now it just seems too big and uncomfortable to play. Definitley saving up for this guitar.

Great, great acoustic/electric!!!!

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I just bought this guitar, and let me tell you that it is one of the best I have ever played. The features are top notch, and you can't go wrong with feel and playability. It is not as full as a dread, but it will definatly cut through and shine. It is great for fingerstyle to flatpicking, and every chord rings like a bell. When you plug it up, it just gets better. If you want a great guitar, and not have to shell out a grand...get this. You will not be dissapointed.


Amazing Guitar

By Tony Two Shoes

In short,this is probably the best acoustic ive ever played. Ive had this guitar for probably a year and a half now and it still impresses me.The tone is stunning and very bright. The ascetics are beautiful thanks to the doa wood and i swear the neck is slimmer and flatter than a les pauls.When its plugged in this guitar loses none of its natural tone and the electronics give you almost complete control over your sound.Ive played high end taylors and martins and in my opinion this guitar tops them at a fraction of the price.If your looking for a great guitar and dont wanna kill your budget get this guitar its awesome.
