Very nice presentation
Channel D very nice satin. Fingers glide on their own. The ebony fingerboard is a treat.
Excellent ergonomics of the grand concert form which the body is less deep than usual Dreadnaught. Guitar very slight
The sound is surprisingly powerful and full saw the body (thanks to the composite structure under the table I guess). The sustain is excellent.
One thing missing there is no attachment strap (except the jack)
The sound is quite versatile and powerful. It provides the accompaniment (style Renan Luce for imaging) or blues, rock, country etc. .. I'm not good at it but I attended a demo of picking on this guitar blew me away also .. a good guitarist has come to draw what he wants ...
amplified sound is excellent too (I had an AER compact 60 and I had the opportunity to tap into others). We can perform a variety of settings with two microphones. Personally, I almost always two
The notch is effective.
I have this guitar for 2 years. I stumbled upon it while I had to sell my Ovation to buy a Takamine.
I was immediately seduced by its comfort, build quality, finish. The touch of the handle has been for many as well.
I tried other models Martin (which I loved but too expensive) Yamaha Ovation Takamine (including Santa Fe)
but the qualities of this guitar and immediately seduced me the price / quality ratio is excellent considering the quality of the instrument
(FYI it is sold in the U.S. $ 1,600)
to € 200 over there is the version Dreadnauht rosewood back and sides ... but I prefer mine ...
With the experience I ever did so this choice and I'm not ready to part with it
