I'll be the first!

After a bit of a wait, this guitar arrived minutes ago thanks to Mike Godlove and team. Excellent setup. I went with D'Addario Nickel Bronze Strings and what a great choice! Whether it's the punch of the strings and/or the meticulously designed thinline body, this guitar packs a punch, acoustically. It's as loud as a Breedlove that I have and the quality of sound is superb. Articulates well at low volumes with fingerstyle and has a nice bite with a Joe Bonamassa pick. The Fishman onboard electronics, which I ran through an AER acoustic amp into a Bose L1 (I know, overkill!) gave a delicate, balanced and thoroughly omnipotent presence with no feedback. Very little string squawk and nice thin neck. Feels more like an ES-335 in shape and touch, but of course, tons lighter. I give Mike and team five stars on this one. There are many fine lower end guitars on the market today-this is one of the tops.
