Like I mentioned, I've owned or tried em all. For the price you can't beat this guitar. Only thing I will do to it, is install a pick guard. Great guitar if you can find one for the price I found mine at.
Model Year: 2000
Price: $290.00 (new)
Where Obtained: eBay

Even without a setup it had good action. After I had it setup, it has great action. It has the single cutaway body with I need for my playing styles. I want to get to the higher registers. And the cutaway allows me the really whail on this baby. It is flawless.

I don't play it through an amp right now, but I tried it through a Prime acoustic amp. It sounded awsome, with it's built in preamp. The thick body gives it a rich deep tone, that I was looking for. I've owned more acoustics than I can count, and this one rates at the top.
When it was setup, the tech agreed with me, that it was close to being as setup as can be, right from the factory. The neck was straight as an arrow. I believe the neck will hold up for years. It is as durable as a guitar can be. It's built to be a stage axe. I've bumped it into tables and amps, etc. No signs of damage, Yet.
