I was surprised with this guitar for Christmas by my grandparents. Before I even played it, I knew it was a decent guitar by the look. When I played it, the big dreadnought body produced a loud, beautiful sound. I LOVED it! It immediately impressed me and I fell in love with this $300 guitar. I soon put Elixir custom gauge .1152 Polyweb 80-20 bronze strings on it, and it sounded even better. I can guarantee that you will most likely enjoy this guitar. So strap up, start pickin' and have fun!!
