Have mostly played electric over the years, just got an urge to have a nice acoustic. Can't believe what I've been missing. Played a few Martins and a couple of Gibson J45's but this one just seemed like the one for me. Low E string just booms out, great tone, wonderful to play. Wanted the best sound and didn't care about abalone inlays etc. but this one has all that too, is really gorgeous to look at. Love all the little details. As many have mentioned in their reviews, the staff at my local L&M were fantastic as well. Markham Road branch.
