When I first opened the case I was completely floored by the beauty of this magnificent dreadnaught! The flamey Walnut back and sides is beautiful to begin with but add to that the amount of lovely looking sapwood in the Walnut and you have an absolute stunner. The looks are one thing, but when I put a pick to her I was overjoyed. The sound is loud and very articulate, especially in the bass range where (in some guitars) muddiness sometimes rears it's ugly head. I really can't get enough of this guitar. I love to hear all the stings and notes with great separation and this does just that. Great sustain too. The playability is exceptional too. It's got a fast slim neck that let 's you cascade up and down the fretboard when playing single note runs and it doesn't cause unwanted hand fatigue either. Check this one out and you'll be going home with a new best friend.
