Overall Rating:
I looked at Yamaha, Takamine and a few others. Norman (Simon and Patrick, same thing) sound better to my ears. Sound is so subjective though.
Model Year: 1998
Price: $250.00 Canadian
Where Obtained: Pinecone Music
Features:
Made in Quebec Mahogany neck, Rosewood fretboard Naural Matte finish Flame maple back
Playability:
This guitar is loud, which is good. It resonates for 15 seconds on any string. The action was too high but I sanded down the saddle following directions at frets.com and now it plays easily. The neck is a little narrow at the nut for fingerstyle ,but capoed , it is a dream.
Sound Quality:
This guitar sound s very open and a little dark , by that I mean it projects more bass than treble naturally but if you pick in closer to the saddle you can get treble happening.
