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

Made in Quebec Mahogany neck, Rosewood fretboard Naural Matte finish Flame maple back
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 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.
