This is an average guitar. If you have always played electric and never acoustic and want to switch, this is a good crossover. Yet I don't think this guitar is something experienced acoustic players would like.
Model Year: 2000
Price: $299.00 (new)
Where Obtained: Local Music Store
Features:
Its a very slim guitar. Its feels just like a strat. Thats the main feature I like about it. ITs a nice acoustic. My main problem is that it is a poorly made guitar. That is why it does not cost very much.
Playability:
It has a very nice neck that plays just like an electric strat. I really like that aspect of it. Although it is nothing extremely special.
Sound Quality:
It has a nice acoustic sound unplugged. Plugged, it sounds better through an electric amp then through an acoustic amp. I use a Princeton Chorus to play it through.
Durability:
It is not very durable. I have had the pegs break while trying to change the strings. I would not use it if you plan on taking it on the road a lot.

When I bought this guitar, I looked at nearly every electro acoustic in the city of newcastle. In my oppinion this has an unbeatable price/sound and build. so what if it's only available in two colors! [Black and White] If your willing to give a different looking acoustic a go try this one, The cutaways are very functional, and it's not just for show. Remember how well your last strat played? Just think hollow instead.
Where Obtained: Windows-Newcastle U.K.
Features:
Although some may be put off at first by it's unusual Strat shape, this is an exellent electro acoustic. The guitar feels like an electric to play, the only consession being the wound 3rd string as expected. the plugged in sound is unbeatable for the price. [I managed to get 35 quid knocked off!!] Controls: 3 band EQ contour and volume, on/off switch. Easy access battery conpartment. Rosewood neck, think tele thinline for width!
Playability:
This had by far the best neck and set-up for this type of guitar in this range. Body appears to use X bracing. The action is low but not so low as to buzz or give noise when giving the strings a good whack! Anyone with an agressive playing style such as my own has no worries of extrenious noise. only flaw: well although not on this guitar but in the same range the telecoustic seems to have a ridge on the top of the neck. on this one the srting tree for the E and B string is slightly out of alinement.
Sound Quality:
In my oppinion this is a guitar ment to be plugged in. It shows all it's best features when you have it plugged in, and try as I might I couldn't get a bad sound out of it whatever setting I used on the pre-amp! Has a loverly mellow sound for fingerstyle. The EQ is very responsive. You can Virtually any sound you need, couple this with a decent FX unit and you could go straight into the desk!
Durability:
This seems to me to be a VERY reliable guitar. With the back made from some sort of fiberglass composite it's both light and strong. A quick look at the insides shows that it seems to be very easy to sort out should the electrics have any sort of a problem.
