Wonderful, beautiful guitar. I bought this guitar because I play worship music and often need to fill different roles. I run this through a Pod 500x The ability to go from an electric guitar with tube amp breakup to a nice acoustic sound has been incredibly valuable! I just select a different patch, turn up the piezo volume, and I'm off to the races. I have found that the piezo by itself has a very hot and "tinny" sound. I pulled the volume back on that patch to match the level of the electric settings. Since you can use the combined output jack, I also leave the neck pickup turned up when using the piezo. This really mellows out the sound and makes a much fuller, rounder sound. I'm thinking of putting a piezo pre-amp or acoustic simulator in the signal chain just to see if it makes a difference. If I do, I'll update the review. But as is, it is a very passable acoustic tone. I have gotten compliments on how good the "new acoustic" sounds.
The electric pickups are pretty bright. Maybe it is just my ears due to coming from a semi hollow body to this. However, it fits in our mix nicely and really cuts through when I want it to. So I would say that it sounds great in a full band mix, but a little too bright for solo work (to me). Not a bad thing though, just more information if you're thinking about purchasing.
The quality of this guitar is amazing! I also love the Light Burst color. Beautiful wood grain look. I really like that the neck has a satin finish. Very smooth and comfortable. Fret height is nice as well for my style of playing (mostly rhythm, a little lead).
As usual, Sweetwater and Dustin Keesbury were amazing in the purchase process. Dustin was very knowledgable and helpful when I was deciding between this guitar and other choices. He kept me up to date between ordering the guitar, it arriving, and getting some accessories. The guitar was packaged very well for safe travel. Top quality packaging (and candy in the box). A quick string tune, and I was jamming! Love ordering from and working with Sweetwater!
