Great Guitar for Great Price
I'm an electric player but have a couple acoustics that I use at times - wanted an acoustic-electric under $500. This is a great deal. Plays well although I found the action to be a bit higher than I like. I removed the saddle and sanded about 1/32" off which was just right to provide good action all the way up the neck. I also smoothed the edges of the saddle, which makes the guitar much more comfortable to play - for some reason they were left kind of pointy. The bone saddle and nut are great features for a budget guitar and are easy to work on. There are lots of quality features that make this way better than any of the "bargain" guitars I tried at local music stores. The Wechter preamp system is excellent and produces great sounds - no need for additional processing gear. The color is very cool too - sets it apart from all the natural top guitars you see, but in a hip sophisticated way. Other than the sharp ends on the saddle, the finish details are all far beyond what you might expect from a low cost guitar. I expect this guitar to serve me well for years and no worries if it picks up a few dings along the way. I'd recommend this guitar to players at any level who are looking for a solid, good playing, good sounding acoustic-electric for under $500 - heck it costs less than half that. Glad I wasn't put off by the low price - it's not a "cheap" guitar.
