I did look at the time at other guitars, fender, ovation and gibson but when I picked this guitar up it felt familar, like an old pair of slippers, they just feel right. If I could find one I would buy it again in a second.
Model Year: 1969
Price: $275.00 Can (new)
Where Obtained: Long and Maquade
When I purchased the guitar the Canadian dollar was worth 1.08 to the U.S. dollar.
Made in Japan
The neck seams a little wider than a fender but I am use to it.
I would say it is just as good as an Ovation 12 string in quality, sound and playing.
Folk and soft rock.
sound is full and warm.
Its 32 years old and still in perfect condition. I have been playing it just about every day for the last year and 1/2.
In 1997 I took it in to a music shop to have it inspected and to have the neck adjusted. They said that the neck was fine and did not need adjustment. I have played this guitar in 100 f and 60 f weather and it stays in tune and the sound and quality are the same.
