I've played on 'em, and I'm not huge on their tone. I prefer a solid dreadnought over an ovation with a plasic back.

I think they sound like crap tbh, just not a full acoustic sound.
A recent study shows that 8% of teenagers listen to nothing but music with guitars in it. Put this in your sig if you're one of the 92% who aren't close-minded morons.

i tried one once.. the sound was okay and it was good to play on. but it was kind of expensive. not worth the money, a real acoustic is better

they're good acoustic/electrics, but not good acoustics. The slim back prevents a full projection of sound, and thus makes it quieter. Plus, the back is rounded so that makes it doubly harder to hold.

I own a CS 257, and use it on stage, cause I dont like miking acoustics, and it does fine, but in a normal situation, alvarez makes better acoustics for a cheaper price.

Leid is pretty much spot on. As an acoustic guitar only .. not so good. You'd be better of going with something made by Alvarez, Yamaha, or Takamine. However, plugged in I really like the sound. The backs are a little odd (bowl shaped, kinda) and I normally have to play with a strap on because it slides. My dad has one and if I want an acoustic-y sound but loud I'll plug his in. I guess play it, and then play some "straight" acoustics and see what sound you like better.

I had a go on one before, I hated it but this is all personal opinion, it just didn't give me the urge to want one, and it was horrible looking, the backs of them are oval they looked cheap and plastic tacky, and it kept slipping off my lap because of the shape, there shite guitars IMHO
