    nice guitar

    iv had mine for several years thought it would arrive with a spruce top but it actually came with a ceder top which i like better this guitar is sweet love the headphone option on the preamp i have played this epi and the gibson counterpart at the same store and really there is no difference i absolutely love the neck on this instrument slim kind of reminds me of a nylon string les paul the guitar is kind of heavy but that is not an issue this guitar players better then any nylon string guitar iv ever played i recieved this guitar around december 08 and still love playing it today i considered several other guitars that where similar and feel that i made the right decision get one im sure you will love it as much as i do

    Meh...

    I've had this guitar (actually have the 1.75" nut) for about 5 months now. I wanted to work some nylon-string stuff into the repertoire ( given popularity of Zac Brown). This guitar had a pretty lousy set-up from the factory. Needed a fairly significant truss rod adjustment, and the bridge supplied with it was awful. I made a bone bridge that works much better than the original ( set-up from the box was like a dobro!), but I still remain unimpressed. Single notes ring out clear, chords sound mushy and lifeless. I run it thu a Marshall AS50, and the chorus setting helps it a little, but not much. I was hoping to get the sound of a decent acoustic nylon, but this is nothing like it at all. Has a very " quacky" attack, and sustain is so-so. I use it a lot, but I'm still looking for the right one. Fit and finish are really good, and the guitar looks beautiful. You need to order the case- nothing else fits it right due to its strange dimensions. Apart from the so-so sound it is a wonderful feeling guitar to play once you get the set-up where you need it. If you need a nylon you can amplify w/o feedback, and you're on a budget (like me!), it's not a bad guitar at all. If you're looking for a guitar that replicates acoustic nylon sound well, this probably isn't your best option.
