    Factory Tawan
    20 boxes, electro-acoustic, with good pickups I got, and with a prampli slecteur gain, rglage bass, and treble mdiums. There is also a small red loupiote vrifier to the level of the stack.
    I believe that the wood used sounds mahogany and spruce, the fingerboard is rosewood.

    UTILIZATION

    The handle is enjoyable to play and it is very easy dplace above. However, it is quite wide, which is may be not all got the whole even if it remains comfortable. Access in acute is facilitated by the pan by the handle once and who loses in thickness.
    The ergonomics are well thought out, the guitar is not too heavy and with its shape, we have trs well in hand in any position.

    The ergonomics are well thought out, the guitar is not too heavy and with its shape, we have trs well in hand in any position.
    I think the strings are too prs key, because it loses power, and we find ourselves obliged to a deep draft (medium for me) to ring the guitar. this level is not forcment absolute comfort for several hours playing track (or not) can quickly rvler painful. At the same time aa the advantage of providing a quick start.
    It plays easily in many styles (personally, I do coaching, gypsy jazz, the finger-picking and Irish music in DADGAD agreement).

    SOUNDS

    The sounds are good plutt (overall ...) for a guitar of this price.
    One-dot symbol: it is not equilibrated trs! If the acute and especially mdiums have a trs beautiful sound, rich and bright hope, I think the bass is too weak, a little tufts ... So try it before buying, this may not be what is best for you (well adpend of each).
    For a, I would say that it's almost an electric guitar because it is only an amp (plus pramp Intgr bte that can give everything she has in the stomach.
    I plugged into a Carlsbro Sherwood Baby, and adchire all! %% https://fr.audiofanzine.com/produits/index 2Cidproduit 2C21930.html
    In short, everything goes well, it's a versatile guitar and harmony is beautiful, EXCEPT low, fortunately, it catches up easily with amplification.

    OVERALL OPINION

    was 5 years that I use this guitar and it suits me perfectly for what I do, even if sometimes I regret having little low. But as I said dj, with an amp, a good password trs.
    In comparison with other guitars comparable prices, it does not blush, she is doing well plutt, a good notch above average thanks to its sound good trs enjoyable quality to cost.
    The ratio quality price is more than respectable, but be careful before buying this guitar, ask yourself if you will not regret beautiful bass very deep and then also if you go out with it requires deep draft.

    With exprience, I would do this without too much hsitation choice unless I had a lot of money!

    The table is solid cedar and rosewood fingerboard.
    Mine is equipped with the TK40 preamp (Volume + 3-band EQ), but I think that there is now a version with a TK40T (even with the tuner and more)

    UTILIZATION

    Mine had a slight manufacturing defect. Over the years the wood has changed and the fault has become a real handicap to play after the fifth box.
    The angle of the handle from the body (heel) was not enough.
    The table has slightly excavated at the bridge and the other a + action has become very high.
    It took a luthier lowers the bridge and now it is again very enjoyable to play (while remaining a guitar that requires a good grip)
    So to buy, be …

    So to buy, be careful up to the ropes and then not to abuse (I think that's what I did), the table is sensitive to temperature and humidity. (Maybe the wood was he too young?)

    SOUNDS

    I do not use amp.
    I play mostly French music in arpeggio. (Type Cabrel, Eicher, ...)
    Since I tried other guitars, I appreciate his good projection without the plug.
    Thanks to its Jumbo and the table raw (varnish), she manages to support the voice in arpèrge.
    For cons, I agree with the previous opinion, it is unbalanced. Especially with a pick.
    and it must connect and use the equalizer to make up for that.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I've had 5 / 6 years.
    I love the form (very comfortable) and powerful sound.
    I like less the presence of too much treble.
    I have not tried a lot before buying.
    I admit, I too rely on the brand and less to my ears.
    But since I tried another and I have not found the same volume.
    I think the upgrade to a slightly more upscale but more expensive.
    I think it is a very good price / quality ratio for an electro-acoustic with solid top.
    It's a good guitar unplugged and plugged it provides a large.
    (I did the scene with the sound engineer and has had no complaints (no feedback, balance easy))
    A remake? I certainly try further but I would do maybe the same choice because of the good quality / price ratio.
    Above all, I'd much attention. (Cover, temperature, shock, etc ...)
