I finally got a new guitar after using novice equipment for at least 7 years. This guitar has good acoustic sound, exceptional electric sound, and because of the two input jacks you can tinker with a blend of sound. You can muster a lot of low-end bassy sound, and crisp acoustic sound. You can rock out, play chill jazz, the acoustic sound alone without the electronics gives it a twangy country sound, almost like a banjo. I am starting to notice if you plug in the acoustic/electric jack, you hear some low fuzzy noise. It uses 9v battery for the preamp so don't keep it plugged in or it will waste power. It's starting to sound somewhat fuzzy, so I'm thinking a batter change might be in order. I got the sleek black model, and it looks and sounds like a champ. I am a singer songwriter who plays in various styles, and I can say this jack of all trades can really shine.
