Sound — 9
This guitar has a warm sound. I'd prefer a more "metallic" sound, but I like my Earth200 a lot anyway! Since I like fingerstyle (with or without thumbpick), my guitar's "full" and somehow deep sound sounds pretty well, I think...
Overall Impression — 10
I like country/blues/folk style. I prefer fingerstyle. I play since about 2 years and a half. I'm not very good, but I'm not so bad! Ahah! I bought my guitar less than 2 years ago, with the help of a friend. I bought the best guitar I could buy with the budget I chose (I decided to spend max 300. I spent 299...). It was funny since I was going to buy the Earth200 NAT color (279). Then we saw the Sunburst one and "let's try this one too!". We didn't think there could be something different, but we wondered why it costed more than the other one. Well... The sound was completely different! My friend tried it and "you must buy this one!". Ahahah!

It look like a very good guitar, to me.
Action, Fit & Finish — 8
I'm just a newbie and so I'm not able to judge all this. But I know my guitar had some problems with the neck (I fixed it, but the 6th string still "buzzes" a bit, sometimes, and I don't know why...). Probably it's my fault!
