My wife bought this guitar for me because of my connection to Holden Village. I had played GS minis before but missed the larger sound of a bigger bodied acoustic. I had talked her out of buying it at first for that very reason. Lucky for me, she got it anyway. This may be a small guitar, but it has a big sound. It's great for working through charts as well as practicing or playing in tight spaces. It's responsive and the sounds has a strong body. Great for accompaniments.
