It's magnificent with the green reflections on its black dress. The satin gives it a slight rebel look. No BIGSBY, no pickguard... But the gilding is classy, especially since I complemented it with a golden plate for the Harpe tailpiece.
In terms of sound, it's not jazzy, already unplugged it sounds definitely '70s, really warm.
I play it mainly with a VOX AC30C2, what a treat.
It's a Korean guitar, but the wood work is stable, with a good finish, it's nice.
To me, it's not obvious that I'd get a better quality paying 3 times as much for a Japanese-made one.
The string action can be super low and the guitar isn't heavy.
