Solid Cedar Table, Solid Rosewood Back, Rosewood Sides
+ Key rosewood bridge
Pr-tube amp with tuner CTP1 integrbr /> Mcaniques oil bath with buttons Ambr.
Some abalone Author of the table and the rosette (a still sober)
Form quasi-classical unusual for a folk with pan coupbr /> The back button is trs (too) quiet.


Channel end trs enjoyable.
Trs comfortable both sitting and standing. I find this format much more enjoyable cash that dreadnought or jumbo.
It is quite heavy for its size, without it being Gnant.
Original action a bit high I got, but I got used to it.
The tuner is very practical use - I found a gadget-beginners.
I put as Nanoweb strings (D'addario original), the sound is prcis trs.


The noise level is surprisingly small for the size of the fund, both in picking accompaniment. It's a versatile guitar, I play a little bit of everything: picking, vocal accompaniment, a little blues / jazz and classical easy.
The sound is warm, balanced trs. The mdiums out well and treble "rounded" by the cedar table is not nasal.
I use 90% and 10% acoustic branch. They sound good trs in 2 cases. Branch, either directly I play a sound or a sound card, with the gain of the tube between half and three quarters. The rglages of prampli it easy to find a good sound.
Try also on acoustic micro cube position - not a bad prampli for effects-, and Marshall AS50, trs satisfactory in both cases.


I use it for a year and a half, and j'apprcie particulirement the comfort of the game and the nuances that can bring out playing softly. (I take my old folk and sometimes I feel the diffrence).
I tried a few before buying MODELS: 310 Taylor, Takamine TSF 48C and 30C, and others I can not remember. I compare it with the AIM TAN 77, but there was none in the shop.
The report seems to me excellent quality price and I probably do it again this choice
