I would rate it as very good and a half.
Only thing don't like is the usual tone on the high E string. Otherwise, I love the sound of this box. Like was already mentioned, does not require tuning as often as some others I own. I have had this for several year. Lover appearance. The harmonics resonate quite well.
This guitar seems a little harder to fret than some others.
This guy has been all over California, dropped, bumped, high humidity and low humidity, high elevation and low elevation. Only humidity and elevation seem to require minor tuning.
I am continually looking and trying out other guitars, I have no desire to get anything else of this type.
Model Year: 1999
Price: $490.00 $aud (new)
Where Obtained: Australia
Natural finish woodgrain. The neck is secured with four screws - this was unusual but I found no problems
I bought the guitar without any pickups and started using a Seymore Duncan woodblock before having a Paratek Equaliser fitted for a stronger more permenant system. i was happy with the final result
Preferred action is set as low as possible without getting annoying fret buzz during more agressive playing. This works fine using D'Addio Custom Light strings.
Acoustically great. For acoustic lead work the only problem is the additional strength required for good bends, I found this to slow me down a bit, to get around the problem, I start the bends one fret above where I would normally use on an electric.
Only one adjustment necessary over nearly three years of hard playing. This was due to a particularly hot and humid summer. The harmonic set-up rivals guitars costing four or five times what I paid for this model.
Live playing: about 6hours per week, I rarely need to adjust tuning during a session.
