[Submit a Review]

Price Paid: $600 USD
Description: Made in USA. 1 Fishman pickup w/ preamp. Solid spruce top, solid mahogany back, laminated sides. Built 1997
Tone:
Comments: Full, bright sound especially with Elixir extra lites. Best sounding Guitar I've ever owned. I replaced the bridge saddle with bone and the sound got even better.
Quality:
Comments: Small flaw on neck about 1 inch by 1/2 inch. Looks like something touched the satin finish before it was dry. I didn't see it for a few days after I bought it.
Overall:
Pros: Wonderful sound, great intonation, easy fingering, a real pleasure to play. Can't believe I got it so cheap. Hate to leave it home so I take it to the Firestation with me.
Cons: If not kept waxed the body will show fingerprints and dirt smudges.
