Description Canadian-made, natural-finish, six-string acoustic. Really pleasant deep tone. Not as twangy as other acoustics in this price range.

For the price, I definitely recommend this as a starter guitar. I wouldn't consider trading it in for something else, although I hope to buy a couple electrics and a Martin acoustic/electric some day - just to add to the collection.... If it were lost or stolen, I'd be very unhappy, but would probably save up for a more expensive axe rather than run out and buy another of these. Not a knock at all, however, on this guitar.
Price: $200.00 (new)
Where Obtained: Musicians' Superstore/ProSound
Features:
Canadian-made: apparently from a small village in Canada where about 1/3 of the residents make guitars. Online research revealed this company is a subdivision of Godin established to make good quality entry-level acoustics. Wild cherry back and sides, maple neck, and spruce top with a rosewood fretboard. 22 frets. I really like the natural lacquer finish. Have received comments from friends about how much they like the "wood" feel of the neck. Standard dreadnought body.
Playability:
I've only been playing for about six months, so it's a little tough for me to decide if "playability" is my problem or my guitar's. I enjoy playing it. I think the action is kind of high, and I'm going to try to get that adjusted. It came with some pretty thick strings, which the salesman suggested I might want to change, and I did.
Sound Quality:
Definitely a deep, warm tone for a $200 guitar. I play some country, some classic rock, and a little pop/alternative and it seems to fit in just fine. Mostly just jamming around with friends after the bar closes, you know?
Durability:
Haven't had any durability concerns.
