Love this guitar

I love this guitar. I have been playing it everyday since it arrived. I take it with me to the beach and everywhere I go. The sound is so much better than the Yamaha I once own. Gave it away once I got my Washburn. I play folk and pop with it. This is a great guitar. Her name is Melodi.
