Sound: This guitar suits perfectly my music styles, I play a lot of different things, from Folk to Indie and progressive, it is very versatile and can be used for many things. It definitively sounds better if plugged in an Acoustic amp, but it sounds quite nice unplugged too. The sound is very bright and not noisy at all. But if you want to play big shows, you will need an amp! // 10

Action, Fit & Finish: When I bought it, the action was very low and perfect, but I do not know if the guitar's action is like that or if it was ajusted because I bought it secondhand. I have nothing to say about the finish, it is just perfect. The only thing is that the jack input is a little loose. // 8

Reliability & Durability: I've played live with this guitar, it will withstand many hits, and the lyrachord back is indestructible. The hardware looks solid and the strap buttons too, even tough I don't really use them since I mostly play sitting down. I use it without backup, and I will continue to do so. // 10

Overall Impression: This is my first Acoustic guitar and it is a perfect match for me, I've been playing for almost a year and a half and this guitar is great. If it was stolen, I would really try to find one again (they are discontinued). I tried other electric-acoustics and the sound of this guitar is amazing for the price. I am telling you, you are not paying only for the looks, the sound is great too! // 10
