I play in a praise band, and took this guitar for the first time to practice last night. Everyone thought it was a beautiful guitar. It plays so effortlessly. The sound is so clear and rich. I couldn't be happier. The Koa wood is striking. I know this isn't an inexpensive guitar, but well worth the investment. If you love to play, having a great guitar just makes your enjoyment that much better. Sometimes, I just open the case to look at it.
