Overall: Nice Guitar! The only complaint i have is the finish isn't as "bright" (in the middle section) as the graphic depicts on the product page - there's more black showing as the sunburst fades into the orangish part than there is the brighter orange. The pic shows the orangish middle of the guitar really standing out, as the black fades into the orange, hence the middle orangish part is somewhat dull. Maybe it's just the one i got though. Apart from that the action, quality, workmanship, electronics, etc, is all flawless/perfect. It also has a really nice "crisp" sound to it; not muddy at all - very 'balanced' sounding.

Sound: For the price I was amazed at how good this guitar sounds. I set it up for open C tuning and it sounds amazing! Alone it sounds ok but the Fishman electronics make this thing sing. It sounds better than some guitars three times the price in my opinion. Feature: As I said the Fishman pre-amp sounds great! I am also impresed with the tuner. I was able to tune the Low E down to C and it held steady, no jumping around like you see on some guitars. Ease of Use: The action on this guitar is very nice. I customized my string guages for open C tuning and a minor tweak of the truss rod is all it needed to keep the action nice and low. Quality: It seems well made, and it sure is a beauty with the Maple top. Time will tell how well she holds up. I like it so much I am considering buying a couple more so I have many alternate tunings available. Value: This thing is worth every Penny! Manufacturer Support: No experience with this The Wow Factor: This thing looks awesome with the Fender inlay and all the binding, but the Maple top is definitely the Main attraction Overall: I plan on keeping this until it is worn out

Sound: I went through two of these through my local music store. Both had bad frets...one of them was terrible above the 13th fret - the other one was close to being acceptable but all it takes is one dead spot to mess things up. In this case the 8th fret. Do your self a favor spend a little more and get something besides a Fender. These were not the first brand new Fenders I have had issues with. a Deluxe Players Straocaster last year was also way less than acceptable for a brand new 600 dollar guitar. Feature: nice pre amp - beautiful veneers - Ease of Use: nothin' to it... Quality: The T-Buckets (IMO) are not that good. Okay for a beginner but you will be glad if you spend about 100 or 150 more bucks for something else. I finally went with a Washburn for about 425... It feels and sounds so much better than this particular model of Fender acoustic. Value: In short, NO! Manufacturer Support: I contacted Fender last year for a lettuce shredder neck that came on a Deluxe Players Stratocaster - was advised to take to authorized repair outlet to make it right. I almost returned it to zZounds but it was filed, smoothed and finished by a local tech. The Wow Factor: I was dazzled by the tops but the performance just isn't there. Overall: tried two overnight from local music store - had to trade up to higher quality instrument...
