I bought this guitar at the Fret House in Covina Ca. for around $2500.

The clarity that comes from this guitar is amazing. The highs ring clear without being thin or tinny. The Fishman pickup is awesome. I like to use the blender at about the 80% pickup range, which utilizes the condenser mic in the tonehole to add a nice acoustic/unplugged sound.

The only thing that I've run into, and I realize that there are other tradeoff's, is that when I am playing unplugged, it is not a huge sound. Part of this is the tonewood that they use, and the other is the fact that the body style is grand auditorium. Although I have played the jumbo version, 615, and it is still not as big a sound as you would get from an 800 series.

Construction and durability is great. I have had this guitar for about 5 years and it is still in great shape, needing only minor adjustments, and I play this thing everyday.

This is an amazing guitar. It is not an all in one kind of guitar, but what it does, it does impecibly. I've played lots of Martins and Larivee's and I would still buy this guitar every day of the week. To get a better guitar you are going to need to move into the area of hand crafted custom guitars (Olson, Goodall, etc).
