Product ExperienceI own it
Closest StoreKanata, Ontario
I bought this to replace a 20 + year old acoustic. When I picked the guitar up I noticed right away that it played in tune all over the neck - excellent intonation. Action is good and overall easy to play even up the dusty end. Love the familiar 12 inch radius. Made a small adjustment to the truss rod which was very stiff to move, but the neck responded well. I play mostly leads in my jam group and bends are very doable on this guitar - it even sustains well. Electronics are good, but I do wish the built in tuner was be a bit more sensitive (minor issue it works just fine). This guitar has a very balanced tone with good bottom end and the highs come through well. Projection is good and suspect it will get better as the top opens up with use. I compared the sound of this instrument to a couple of Gibson models and yes I give the edge in sound to Gibson, but is that worth the extra thousands? Don't be put off by the gold sparkle - the black finish is what stands out. This is a cool guitar.
