Product ExperienceI own it
Closest StoreVictoria, British Columbia
Tried an L series out a few weeks ago and was hooked, nothing quite like it in an incorporated "augmentation system" other than the external Tonewood Amp. Saw the cheaper FA and found really no difference in sound. Both build quality and sound are tops regardless of the price point. Interestingly I did a db test and whether the system is on or off the levels are the same. However, with system on it somehow "sounds" louder. For acoustic jams and songwriting/composition this guitar really is a game changer. There is nothing else out there that does what it does. The fun factor is watching the reaction of other players and the audience to what is coming out of the guitar and there is no hint on the outside of the magic gizmo inside.
