Guitar tested directly out of the box! First effect: the original look: you love, or hate it! The woods are lovely and the decor a little bling-bling. RAS on the finish.
The neck is quite thin and the action is very low. The comfort is there. access to acute is fairly easy with the cutaway.
The electronics is reduced to a bare minimum: two small knobs at the soundhole (volume, tone). So no appendage on the body of the guitar is beautiful, but not too practical (maybe with practice?)
The sound is rather unique. The bass is very deep and do not obscure the treble a bit but the midrange. The report notes alone is accurate enough (you would think a ebony fingerboard!). Everything seemed to miss a chouilla consistency involved in agreements but that little, however, appeal to some of us.
I just tried it plugged into an AER. The sound is true to the acoustic sounds (good!) but slightly modified. Maybe we should look on the side of the amp or effects for any corrections.
This opinion results from a simple test "live out of the box". This is an original guitar in both the look of his that, in the spirit of originality Tim Breedlove (formerly of Taylor). The playability is almost worthy of an electric. The possibilities for its trendy sounds small but the sound is good.
Seen at 1400 €, it becomes expensive for an Asian origin. It approaches the top prizes standards made in the USA (eg Martin, Taylor), or "folk" Alhambra (but little known wooded side hot and original).
There are models made in the USA much more expensive. The price of originality?
