Sound — 10
The guitars acoustic sound is a real bright, full and rich sounding though when played through the amp it rattles like hell. It delivers a great tone for a wide range of guitar styles. The acoustic tone makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand up so it definatly deserves the top rating here.
Overall Impression — 10
I play punk and rock and this is really good for all the acoustic bits. I've played the guitar for about 4 and a half years and over that time I have aquired a Gibson SG Standard, a Gibson Les Paul Studio, an Ibanez GAX30 and a Gibson Humming Bird acoustic and this one ranks right up there with them. I love its sweet tone and playability but hate that damnn pickup. Anyway it has everything I need and it would appeal to an advanced player, beginer or pro.
Reliability & Durability — 10
Excellent. The finish (if not taken care of) could possably scratch a bit though.
Action, Fit & Finish — 10
Apart from the pick up this is a killer axe.
Features — 8
It is an electro-acoustic guitar therefore has a pickup inside its hollow body. It has a lovely worn rosewood neck with 22 frets and a laminated top. Although it has the electro-acoustic feature I just use it as an acoustic guitar (reason stated under sound).
