I played gut strings costing 3 times as much and they weren't worth it compared to this. I bought this guitar for its tone, feel, "Northwoods" look and for the outstanding value. (almost unbelievable value) You can buy this guitar today without electronics for around $250 dollars new! I would like to own 2 of these babies. I would replace it same day if lost or stolen.

Where Obtained: Goodtime Music-Streamwood, IL
Made in Canada, (the Seagull company). Has solid cedar top w/ mahogany back and sides. Has a nice satin finish which gives it a very non-spanish look for a gut string guitar, which I like alot. Has more of a "woodsy" look to it. Has a piezo bridge with an active EPM Quantum EQ (volume and 3-band eq control. Good amplified sound through PA or direct recording. It's a traditional non-cutaway spanish style body.
I love the way it plays. Maybe the intonation isn't perfect, but it is good.
I play non-classical finger style on this guitar. It's perfect for me. I think more players should explore gut string guitars. What a sound it is. This guitar has well balanced output across all 6 strings with a great over all tone.
3 years old with no problems at all.
Sounds and plays very well for a low price. Competitive with Spanish guitars costing twice as much.

Main feature is a very resonant top similar to the Seagull guitars. Has adjustable neck, which is unusual on classicals.
Excellent for price range.
I imagine a non glossy finish is more vulnerable to the elements.
