Sound — 9
The guitar is great for strumming and fingerstyle. My family thought that this guitar was powerful sounding with sweet and clear mid tones. I especially love the mids and highs. And the rosewood back and sides provided the deep bass sustains.
Overall Impression — 10
I certainly would buy another if I've lost this. And would upgrade to the TW1000 to upgrade.
Reliability & Durability — 9
Strap buttons are of high quality. And I placed a Fishman humbuckle sound hole pickup to great success. I believe this guitar will last me a long time. Great value for money given that it sounded so good at such a great price.
Action, Fit & Finish — 8
Action was too high for my liking. But, being able to setup the guitar myself, I was quickly able to setup the guitar for my own style of play.
