« This amazing guitar! »Published on 09/16/15 at 06:07
The shape is lovely, once you get used to it. The finish is plain, and IMO much the better for it. It was the neck that I fell in love with: I was in a music shop looking for a slide, and I picked this guitar from the wall to try a slide with. In seconds I was struck by just how much this neck wanted to be played. I had never had that feeling before. Up and down and in and out...it really inspired me. The body is comfortable to hold, much more so than a jumbo or dreadnought. the sound is dark and mature, and has definitely become more so after playing steadily for a couple of years. I own a couple of different guitars, and this has become very much my go to axe.
There are no electronics, but I purchased a simple, cheap, passive pick up and it sounds great going through my ( admittedly very expensive AER ) amplifier. There is just something special about this guitar.
Buy it if you love to play. Buy it if you are a beginner. Buy it if you want something a little different and buy it if you are a pro.
