Price paid: $ 300

Purchased from: Braganza, Calcutta

Features: Made in China, year would be 2005. Electro-Acoustic guitar with Fishman Mini-Q Pick -up with Volume and Tone controls.. Came with Gig bag, Strap, Strings. Rosewood fretboard and smooth frets. Finish is Transparent Black. Cut away body with pearl inlays in fret board. The Crest Headstock just looks super and the baby delivers the sweetest of the sounds. // 10

Sound: The sound is superb. The Fishman Pick-ups installed are amazing. The guitar can handle a variety of sounds from Country style to Dirty blues. I have been playing it for 4 years and the sound has only improved with vintage. Using with a 15 watt practice amp. Have gigged with it and always have found it to be great! // 10

Action, Fit & Finish: The factory set up was good and did not need any modifications. The frets are nice and smooth and the action you get out of it is great. The guitar did not contain any flaws in the set up. The pick ups were nicely adjusted and the battery provided with it is still running without any hitches.The guitar did not have any finish flaws at all. // 10

Reliability & Durability: It has withstood live playing and torturing it for 12 hours a day. The hardware still is in perfect shape. Have gigged without back up. The finish is good to last and shows no signs of wear and tear after what I have put it through. The Strap button is solid and the tuners are in perfect shape. // 10

Overall Impression: I had got this guitar mainly to play Acoustic pieces of soft rock, classic rock, Acoustic blues and rhythm sections. It is a perfect match. Have been playing this one for 4 years and rank it amongst the best that I own. If broken or lost maybe I will go for a CD series, but I would definitely make sure that nothing happens to this one. I call it my "Black Pearl" and take good care of this baby. It is a great instrument to have. // 10
