Great Guitar Great Price
by Ken from Coldwater MIJust bought this one and love the tone. I love the thinner body which in my opionion is much easier to play. You do loose the deeper sound though.

by Ted Stott from Walsh, COThis is a big-sounding guitar for a slimline acoustic/electric. It is a slimline version of a jumbo-style guitar, not a dreadnaught, so for its size, the bottom end is surprisingly well balanced.

As a player for over 40 years, I've played many acoustics, electrics and basses, and it's rare that I find something that sounds and plays so well, especially at this price. The built-in tuner is very handy and works at least as well as anything you have to plug in. It locks on to the pitch instantly and provides clear and easy tuning without hassle.
The e-sonic preamp is powered by two 2035 batteries, as commonly found on most computer motherboards and are not expensive to replace, if necessary. I haven't had this guitar long enough to determine battery life, but keeping a couple of spare batteries on hand is always a good idea. I've found no automatic shutoff for the tuner, so make sure that you turn off the tuner when you're done to preserve battery life. Tuning mode will also mute the output, so if you're onstage, you'll know if the tuner is on or off.
Plugged in, this guitar sounds amazing, and with the e-sonic's Dynamics slider, you can easily tailor your sound to your own preferences. For live shows, the Phase switch will attenuate or completely eliminate feedback while still sounding excellent.
For studio recording, I would recommend mixing a mic with the output and a taste of your favorite EQ setting to get an outstanding acoustic sound. As comfortable as this guitar is to play, I'm sure that a great performance in the studio is only a matter of a little practice and a few tweaks of EQ.
Overall, this instrument is well suited for everything from the stage to the studio to the campfire. It's a joy to play, very comfortable, and with the Florentine cutaway, upper frets are effortless to reach. I took away half a star because it's made in China, but otherwise it's top-notch and worthy of any guitarist's attention. The other reason for taking away half a star is that a satin finish neck is not an option. close [-]

Nice guitar, but consider...
by milod from Northern Plains USAThe price drop makes this an even better deal. But it's not a guitar for all seasons. It's a very nice fingerpicker especially run through an amp to add a bit more mid and bass and less of a wire-like... read more [+] sound to the top strings if you use very light strings for a very light hand as I do - 9-42.

Do not buy it without a case. It's a nice light guitar with a nice neck and a phase button that keeps it from screaming feedback. If mine broke or was stolen I'd replace it in a minute but don't expect it to be a D28 or a Hummingbird. For lots of lighter-handed stuff from gypsy jazz to folkie fingerpicking it's very nice. close [-]
