This is the best value guitar for anyone looking for a good playing and sounding acoustic without electronics. This guitar has amazing sound and is made incredibly well. If you do not need electronics and don't want to spend more than $500 on a guitar, this is probably the best of them all. I did have to sand down the bridge a little bit to get the action where I liked it but action is all a matter of personal preference and a setup is usually needed on any guitar you buy at any dollar value. I use Ernie Ball Aluminum Bronze strings on mine and they sound great!
