The amazing ability to go from clear, clean acoustic to blazing rock overdriven sounds is almost mind boggling. Add to the stellar electronics a smooth, fast playing neck, thin profile and great look, and this guitar gets a lot of admirers. If mostly used for its acoustic settings, a light set of acoustic strings can be used. I do a lot of electric playing, so I use a light gauge electric set. The 5 way selector switch allows the guitar to range from acoustic to almost any electric sound (strat, Les Paul, tele, and more). It's the ONE guitar I've held onto while selling and buying many others.
