This is my first guitar and im sure il love it for just that reason!
Its a nice acoustic thats also electric and its got a black finish, and most features on it are outlined in black..
It has a nice tone, i havent seen too many guitars, but i like this one a lot! ^_^
Rarely it gets a rumble in it im unsure of the cause of it for now, but sometimes this happens...
I looked at the lower end Takamines and Washburns before I bought this, I might have bought a Seagle S6 if I had seen one first, but I like having a pickup and I didn't spend extra to get one. Overall, this was a great guitar for the money I spent on it and I think It's good enough to last for a while, I play it a lot and it has held up very well.

Guitar made in Korea I think, laminate guitar with good pickup(fishman) sounds good unplugged, even better through a small tube amp.Has natural finis very well made, action is nice and low, easy to play. This is a cutaway auditorium style which allows easy accessibility to the upper frets. sound is full and balacnced throuout and the tuners are a sealed Grover type ( not Grovers) and it stays in tune when sitting a while and afer it's been played
This guitar plays well, it's the first guitar I've bout in about twenty five years, so I wasn't aware of a lot of stuff that was out there. If It were stolen I'd probably buy another one for the price, because I like having the pickup and eq that's in it
Sounds good, a little more treble than I like until it's plugged in then you can use the eq to give it a better bottom end. good for coffee house work and travels well in hard case. I'm looking at a Taylor 310 now, because I belive it has a more balanced sound overall, but I'm very pleased that I bought this one
Holds tune very well has adjustable truss rod accessed thfough sound hole, although once I seet it where I liked it it has stayed put. This guitar stays in tune and has a compensateing saddle so it is in tine throughout the entire neck. Hardware seems very durable, at least I haven't had a problem with it yet (2 years).
I looked at EVERYTHING, and this one was a great price, aesthetically pleasing, had great sound, and I liked the action. I would buy it again if I lost it, but I hope I never lose it (heh).

Made in Korea. 21 frets, 6 strings. Pre-amp with phase, volume, bass, middle, treble, and shape.
I love the action on this guitar. Neck allows for quick slides... not too fat. I enjoy this more than many guitars I have played on, but that's just personal preference. No flaws that I can think of.
No effects, but I usually use it with a 150 watt Marshall amp. I play some punk (yes, punk) on it and with gain it sounds JUST LIKE a regular electric. It is also great for alternative and folk music. Oh, and blues... sounds GREAT. It has a mellow sound, with the capability to really boom.
It is reliable. I have not had to do anything to it yet, except, of course, for tuning it every time I play. Hardware is great, still, and shows no signs of wear, etc. Have not noticed any warping, etc., with climate changes.
I think the guitar retails for $480 new, which is a nice price for what you get. Its a solid, stageworthy acoustic without any stupid bells and whistles.

Spruce top, mahogony back with a nice fret acess thanks to the cutaway. My model has a decent EQ but the 1999 model has a fishman which is awesome.
The frets are really well done, the action is low and the neck is straight. Just plain good.
Nothing special hear. A punchy sound that works well with pretty much any style of music. Kinda bassy. I play alot of dave mathews type stuff with it.
My friends brother was walking down the stairs with it in his hand and fell. He got more damage than the guitar did.
