Wechter TO-8428 is Wonderful!
In a word, the T0-8428 is exquisite. It is made exceptionally well, the sound is well balanced, and crisp. This was the first guitar, ever, I have bought that played well out of the box. Visually, it is stunning to see from the Herringbone trim, to the ebony neck, and well polished spruce top and rosewood sides/back. The Snow-Flake fret guides are very pretty, and a classy addition to the instrument. The mahogany neck is easily playable, however at 1 7/8 inches at the nut, it is a wide neck. As a comparison, the Martin Triple O is slightly smaller at 1.75 inches at the nut. Over-all the Wechter T0-8428 is worthy even if the price were twice the amount. The only thing I would change with this instrument is adding a strap peg at the neck, body joint., a personal preference which is easily accomplished. If you are interested in a visually beautiful, balanced sounding, highly playable guitar with the right appointments, you should consider this instrument. I also want to thank my friends, Marc Silver, and Mike Arango (ext 1334) at Sweetwater for the emails, and phone conversations we had about this instrument. Thanks Marc, and Mike!
