real acoustic instrument can be played with another guitar and a cajon without amplification, sounds very good throughout the race. the handle type fender jazz bass is very easy to play. Mine is flat mesh, which increases acoustic rendering of the object. the only complaint is the lack of an attachment point for playing with a strap. All I had tried before in acoustics did not suit me, poor construction, bad taken charge, the type of instrument that is placed after 1 hour of use ......... the visual is also important!!
