UTILIZATION

Channel pleasant
Slight
Good ergonomics easy to play
is best suited for finger picking.
Very tolerant of Celtic music

The lifts are small, so we rolled two and a half turns on the low E string .... against 3 of a normal folk.

The guitar comes without accessories ... So without the key to adjust the truss rod, or bolt is smaller than a normal sized guitar ... it will be necessary that I find the right key, I did not intend to go to the store every time I need to adjust my neck

SOUNDS

Sounds balanced.
Medium of a little compressed ... we'll wait until a table opens to clarify
The highs are very present
The bass is generous but of course less dominant than on a guitar larger format.

A good extra-tain on this guitar.

The intonation is correct, no flaws found, this guitar is right.

OVERALL OPINION

I just bought it
This guitar is beautiful is a joy to behold.
A version with body mass would have been welcome
The price / quality ratio is very good
I tried this model only after taking info on the net.

Against by not buying this guitar blind, I mean on the net. Indeed, I noted the great disparity in the quality of the finished product between the two guitars that the store had in stock (and even a third in another store). Basically one of the two models had cosmetic defects including a clear spot on the nail showing missed on the finish.

Well ask for an adjustment of the neck, the guitar I bought had the truss rod completely relaxed that making a disturbing noise in the handle on certain agreements.

The very positive points, this guitar is very nice with a good aesthetic choice especially his back flamed maple and rosewood melant or the net abalone / maple ... yes, no plastic on this guitar (except ankles) .. . even the frets are made of bone!

The sound is not drinking for a guitar mass of small format, I will describe this in a few months when it will open the table, for now it is too early.

I will ever be the choice for the same budget and the same need.
