Channel type Martin.
Based on these objective data, I go into the subjective, and I honestly did not expect such quality!
The handle is Martin, near the hair, super comfortable, to bars with my little fingers is a real pleasure. Access to acute is not terrible, for normal folk, it is not what is asked.
Ergonomics 000, that is lightweight and compact.
The sound ... bah ... it's how to say ... enormous, mind-boggling. It's deep. Not as large as a Dreadnought, a small "dry" due to the format, but then it's all good. I tried Martin, Taylor, Cort, Tanglewood, Ibanez, Yamaha (LS16, same format) Anyway almost all before I get a little blind, with only the U.S. and comments on other Blueridge Audiofanzine for every benchmark ... I am amazed!
It will suit any style. Brilliant in picking.
The projection of sound is excellent, even impressive for such a small creature.
Well, I have since yesterday, not easy to find it until our friends in Germany have begun to offer them (2 stores MP and MS especially for those who understand - they are slowly in France), I failed to try my luck in the States ... I wanted to lug around a small guitar, but still good at that, not in excess of € 400. I'm ready! Value for money simply unbeatable at that price, it still has rough guitars, not very well finished, machines that spin impress but quality issue, not great. There's sober, beautifully finished, a pretty little head as any, a good patent that does not slow down the game ... In short, I remake that choice every day, eyes closed, what I did, and well done!
Do not hesitate!
