This guitar has spectacular tones, whether plugged in or unplugged. The action is smooth and it plays almost effortlessly all the way up the fretboard, right from the factory. No need to make adjustments up or down. The finish is great and it has a really nice look to it. I bought this to replace a Hummingbird Pro that I had decided to retire. And I have to say, this Songwriter absolutely blows away the Hummingbird Pro - played side by side, there is no comparison. I liked it so much better that I gave away the Hummingbird to a friend of mine.
Back to the sound. The tones are perfectly balanced. From the bass to the midrange to the highs, the sounds are simply incredible. Once you pick this guitar up you won't want to put it down. When plugged in, the electronics are easy to use and can really compliment the type of music you are playing with minimal adjustments.
This guitar is worth every penney. I would recommend this to anyone needing a high quality acoustic guitar that is great for the stage or just pickin' some tunes in you living room.
