What can I say, I am very happy with this guitar and
plan on keeping it for life. I picked this guitar over
three or four new guitars in the show room.
Eventhough it was used, I felt it played and sounded
far better than some 5 and 6 hundred dollar
acoustics around it. It has a very unique look, it's a
real beauty. This guitar was a college graduation
present from my late grandmother. She wanted to
get me a class ring but I told her that if she got me a
guitar instead I'd have something to remember her
by. Her name was Amelia and so is the guitar's.
Where Obtained: Woodsy's music, Kent, OH
This guitar was made in St. Louis, MO; has a walnut
or ebony fret board, not sure; 20 fret; 6 string; single
bar-style bridge pick-up, no control...much like the
owner; peg style
bridge with non-locking tuners.
The condition of this instrument is pretty flawless
other than the fidelity of the bridge pick-up which is
never used. The action is smooth but requires
decent finger pressure to sound cleanly. Great bold
low resonance and good sustain on all strings and
frets. Very nice to play.
I really only know blues rhythms and leads and it
holds its own when playing rhythms or solos and
pickin'. Overall I'd say it has a very warm but bright
tambre. Compared to other acoustics I've played I'd
say it has above average acoustic volume and more
depth than say a Yamaha or Fender.
I have owned this guitar for 10 years and I have not
needed any adjustments..tends to stay in tune pretty
well. It doesn't leave the house much...stays in the
hard case when not playing. No blemishes.
