This guitar suits pretty much all I play. I play everything from Skynyrd to Disturbed. I am using a Peavey KB-1 amp right now, and it wounds wonder full with my guitar. The guitar does have a bit of noise when playign with the amp turned up, but it's nothing very noticable.

Overall Impression — 10
This guitar is amazing. All types of music sound good on it, it will withstand almost anything. If it were stolen I would definatly buy another one althought I would prolly hunt the person down. The only thing I have to say bad about this guitar is that: Buy a set of wouldnt bridge pins fo rit. The onses that come wiht it suck. Other then that This is a great guitar that is well worth the money for anyone looking for a new acoustic.

Reliability & Durability — 10
This guitar is ammazing. It was withstood me wailing away on it with a stainless steel pick, to falling over in the case without an damage. The strap pin was a little hard to get the strap over, but it is very secure. Over the past few months, the finish hasn't changed at all except for where I hit a door knob with it. It was will stand almost all playing environments.

Action, Fit & Finish — 8
It was wonderfully set up when I got it. Everything was perfect. Except for the bridge pins. They snapped when I tried to change my strings for the first time. Everythign fit perfectally.

This Chinese made guitar has 20 frets. It has a solid sprue top with a gloss polyurethane finish. The neck is made of nato, fretboard of rose wood, and the sides and back are of laminated maple. It has an active Fishman 4 Classic preamp with bass, middle, treb, and billiance control. I'm not sure what kind of tuners are on it, but they stay intune almost all of the time.

    I had the DG20CE, and found that custom set of strings with thicker low strings and thinner high strings helped to balance this guitar out a bit.

    I bought a Fender Acoustic, never got the model number from the store, but I think it was this one. Except mine has 22 frets I believe. Definitely a good buy on my part and since i

    Bought this guitar as my first acoustic and I must say I'm very pleased with it. Done lots of recordings with it and they all sounds great. The action was off when I first got it (still kinda is) but I have no other qualms with the guitar.

    I bought it for 150 a few years ago. It sounds great through an amp and the action is good. Sounds great with a plectrum, but I wouldn't advise finger picking. I'm just about to sell it. I reckon 80 reserve.

    Wouldn't advise finger pickin'? I do. I handled one @ Guitar Center a while back. Maybe it was just me, but it lacked a balanced sound strummed-- lacked bass when strummed, but maybe that'll change as w/ time as it ages. It sounded pretty when finger picked though.

    I have had one of these guitars for years now and love it. It has taken right through learning to play to doing Gigs and sounds great through amps and PA's. I would recommend one to anybody. I give mine heaps, Play it soft or hard, strum of finger picking. Sounds great.
