Tonal Perfection (PERFECT NEED I SAY)!!!
The construction of this guitar is absolute perfection to match the PERFECT tonal quality when gliding, sliding, hammering, pulling, strumming, and finger picking! Upon arrival, I opened the case and found a glowing gem from Heaven that shone like the morning sun! I was completely blown away by the beauty of this work of art, both aesthetically and acoustically, in terms of expression. I received this guitar on August 08, 2007, and it already has about 40 hours of play time. The incredible point in reference to playing this guitar is that it gets better and better sounding the more you play it. I suppose that goes along with seasoning prime cuts of beef before you devour them in a manner of speaking. The bottom line here, folks, is that you truly can judge this book (guitar) by its cover! Not only is it a joy to stare at for hours on end, it's the most addicting instrument I've played thus far. I've owned Gibson, Martin, and Takamine which pale in comparison in my humble opinion (IMHO). I'm not knocking the other guitar makers, but based on my own experiences (20 years now), this IS the best guitar I've ever played in my lifetime. If you don't have one, save your ducats, because it's worth every well-spent cent!!!!!!
