One of my best buys. See review for dimensions.

This may be the ONLY place you are able to get this EXACT dimensions, as EVERY Web sight has a different flavor.
The guitar is flat out gorgeous!
I am a guitar collector and hobby player with over 100 guitars in my collection.
I have stayed away from jumbos in the past, because I am mainly an electric guitar player, and the largest acoustic I am comfortable with is the Ibanez PN15 Parlor.
I wanted a bigger sound, as close to the high priced Gibson SJ200/J200 as I could get, and I think this guitar does just that.
The guitar is made in Indonesia, which I personally like about it, rather than China made. There is an on going battle between which is best, but I have had better luck with Indonesia, and that is all I can speak of.
The finish is flawless, with no finger rash. The stock strings are great, with no need to change them out. The action is low, with
no fret buzz, and no need for any truss adjustment. I think I lucked out with the set up on this one, or maybe we chalk it up to the Sweetwater set up.
I have not tried out the electrics on the guitar, and did not buy the guitar for this function, so look elsewhere for this.
Due to my trepidation about the guitar size, I was very pleased that being a jumbo, the guitar felt playable, and reach around was
complete, without wanting to play in front of a mirror to see where my fingers were placed. I have one guitar (made in Canada...ahemmm) that is 5" deep, and I just can't play it.
This is a VERY well made guitar, with a full rich (not muddy like the Canada guitar) sound, and worth at least twice the asking price.
