Solid wood constructed guitar that rivals guitars 2 and 3 times its price point. A simple setup after purchase took this guitar from good to great! Forget about the Martin’s and Taylor’s in this price range. This guitar blows them away. Amazing sounding electronics as well! This is a great looking, easy playing, fantastic sounding guitar! Rick at the Calgary North store was easy and great to deal with as well!! Cheers!

A fantastic instrument! It's warm, crisp, and loud. Individual notes sound full and chords sound amazing! I tried Martin's and Taylor's and chose this guitar over those brands. It's perfect in every way. I can't say enough about it's sound.
