I was a bit apprehensive about buying a guitar off the internet, unseen/unplayed.. seems a bit un-soulful, and you know how guitars can vary.. especially lower quality ones.. which is one reason I chose to spend a little more on this mid-range guitar.
There was nothing to worry about. Packaging was very good and protective, and the quality of the instrument is very high. Mine came exactly as pictured, And MAN it is so gorgeous in person.. jeez I nearly cried.
I would agree with the other reviewer, it plays like butter. I like its voice as well, similar to the nicest resonator guitars I have plinked on locally, perhaps a little brighter due to the new strings.. once I got it tuned up and strummed a few chords, I knew I'd be keeping this guitar the rest of my life.
