The place of manufacture is to check, if I say Asian. easel "classic" ankles folks, cutaway, 20 frets, a piezo pickup and a Fishman 4-band preamp. The neck is thin, and it is a 3/4 Case jumbo shape. The inlays on the head are beautiful. For the price, it has better performance than guitars brand same price. The seriousness of the production is undeniable and mechanical never failed me (and I can abuse the strings!)
The neck is as comfortable as an electric, it really is the highlight of this instrument. The cutaway gives a comfortable access to acute is easy enough, despite a pretty big heel (which is normal on an acoustic). The format 3/4 Case is great I find it enhances ergonomics and the jumbo shape appeals to me (but that's personal). The preamp is very effective, we will return below.
For what I do it fits perfectly. I generally used in DI when I branch, or my electroacoustic marshall. And 95% of the time I play unplugged. Its only flaw is a lack of bass due to its smaller body, but it becomes an advantage for the picking for example, where we can then attack the bass strings more easily. It's solid wood so the projection is good. Fingers or plectrum it fits well, it lacks roundness strumming, but it's all about musical context with a bass that plays, it's not embarrassing. In addition, once connected, it makes the job very well, the eq is very effective in the low back a beautiful sound quality is obtained.
I use it for almost ten years, she has never disappointed me. It bears the scars of our common adventure, but she never made me blow Trafalgar. It deserves to be better known, Aria guitars made with impeccable sleeves and value for money is almost unbeatable. I tested a lot of beautiful guitars, but it has "waves" special, it is addictive. I put excellence simply because of much more expensive guitars offer perfection in the world of stringed him.
