"From an aesthetic point of view this is a very handsome guitar whose gloss black finish marks a marked change from the more usual natural or sunburst look and the overall standard of finishing is flawless."
"Sound-wise, the acoustic tone is a good example of the excellent symbiosis between the timbers; the Sitka Spruce top provides a strident but not overly shrill top-end shimmer whilst the mahogany back and sides add warmth and a nice thumpy lower mid that helps to project the guitar's voice without degenerating into the harsh over-compressed sound that can sometimes mar the performance of lower-priced acoustic guitars."

The product price includes 6 years' warranty and 180 day money back guarantee.
