Product ExperienceI own it
Closest StoreSt. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador
I bought this guitar during the Covid19 lockdown, never had a chance to play it in store! I do a lot of research on guitars before I make any purchase! Until the day it arrived at my house! Great build, light weight and 000 body style makes it very comfortable to hold and easy play! I ended up changing the strings to Elixir Nanoweb phosphor bronze lights. Lowered the action and there it was! That rich bass tones and highs with the mid scoop really brings this guitar to life! With the Fishman Matrix VT Enhanced, really puts the guitar on the big stage! So if your looking for true quality and a reasonable price range, this is the guitar for you!
