I have been looking for just the right acoustic guitar for such a long time - over 3 years. I wanted a cutaway, and electronics, but I didn't like when the controls were visible through a hole cut in the body side, so it had to be in the sound hole. I also wanted a satin finish because I don't like super shiny guitar finishes - that looks tacky and cheap to me. And I wanted the shorter scale length of 24.75 in. Also, I wanted a solid spruce top, and wood (even if laminated) back and sides (not that HPL stuff). I was often on the verge of buying a Martin 000Jr or the Taylor Academy 12, but they were starting to get pricey. BUT... today I stumbled upon this beautiful Simon and Patrick Heart of Wild Cherry CW Folk SG A/E. It has absolutely everything on my list of musts, and more. And it looks so much better in person. The pale wood showcases all the beautiful wood grain. And this thing plays beautifully. It's as easy to play as the Taylor Academy 12, which was my benchmark for ease of playability. I even got to plug it in before buying it and it sounds fantastic through the amp. On top of everything, it's a Canadian company so you're getting great bang for the buck - I got electronics and wood top, back and sides for less money than the non-electonic version of the Taylor and Martin's I mentioned above. By the way, the picture for this guitar shows the controls built into the side of the guitar, but the controls are actually in the sound hole (nice and subtle). Also, the description states that it is a 'mini Jumbo', but it isnt - it's a concert size body. Perfect for the sofa. What a find. Thanks to Mike and his friendly easy-going help at Long & McQuade on Henderson Highway in Winnipeg.

Why pay more for a Chinese acoustic when you can support a Canadian company! This is a great guitar, smooth neck, great sound. 10/10 would recommend.

Build quality and design are exceptional. This guitar has a great tone for its size and is a delight to play on. In my opinion it rivals much more expensive guitars in playability and attention to detail.

This guitar has a truly beautiful sound. The acoustic electric combo makes it very versatile. At this price point, you'd be hard-pressed to find something better. Love the look of it as well.
