First off, I will explain quickly the main specifications on this beautiful guitar:
Spruce top, Maple back, sides and neck, Jumbo sized guitar, No cutaway.
This guitar is absolutely gorgeous. If you find a picture of it, you will know exactly what I mean. First impressions on this guitar are that it looks wonderful, and is a very big bodied guitar.
This may take some getting used to, but after the first few plays, it becomes easier. The tone on this guitar is well suited for many aspects of playing; I personally am an indie/rock player, but it suits blues and plays jazzy styles well too.
It isdefinitely more of a strummers guitar than a solo-ers (if that's a correct term) guitar. THe higher frets are harder to reach, and with no cutaway, getting above 15 is pretty hard. The neck is very smooth and fast to play on, almost begging the fingers to the right frets, it is so nice.
Un-amplified this guitar sounds very sweet, warm and feels so easy to strum, amplified it can take on a different sound if needed, adding reverb or delay to the mix can work very well with this guitar.
This jangly and warm toned guitar has been a beauty to play, and is a great guitar for those who have been playing for a wehile and want to advance to the stage where they have a top quality instrument, that will last for quite a while, at a good price.
