Nice silk finish to the body that's aged really well over time, Had this about 10 years, The preamp hasn't worked so well for a while, but it's a nice guitar with a full bodied tone without being too big.
I have the the guitar since 2006 - one of the best acoustic in terms of playability (also compared it to other higher models from more traditional manufacturers). Thin neck, small radius, very comfortable. With a good set up it plays excellent. In terms of sound, it has good projection, less loud than you would expect for its body size, bass could be richer. However, for its price (laminated b /s) it was a very good investment. It holds very well in D standard tuning. Changing the nut and saddle to bone improved the sound. Electronics - I have the version with Bband preamp, thin sound compared with other mode modern systems, tuner works very well. I had several issues with noise hum, imbalances from string to string.
Overall, I really recommend the guitar for its price point, for live situations I would suggest upgrading the pick up system.
