Great versatile guitar
I have been playing the 312ce for a number of years. Bought it because my Martin dreadnought was way too big to do long shows with, and I looked like a 5 year old girl playing her dad's guitar. This one was much more suited for me in terms of weight and size. As for the sound, it sounds great plugged and unplugged. I really have no complaints. I think the only thing that always kind of scares me is that the end pin is where you put the battery in, and I always have some nightmare that the battery will fall out in the middle of a show, but that hasn't happened...yet.
