I heard a Texan USA made guitar, and the sound and finish blew me away, so did the price tag. I had heard great things about the Masterbilt, so I decided to get one through zZounds. At a great cost under a grand, this guitar arrived quickly. So I tuned her up and I was stunned at the amazing sound of this finely crafted guitar. Very rich low end, perfect mids, and just the right amount of sparkling highs. The finish is a satin/ Gloss that looks perfect. I did file the saddle a tiny bit, and adjusted the neck, restrung with elxier strings.... and I absolutely love it. Plays great, sounds better than any Gibson J45 I've played... This is a keeper guitar that rocks. The electronics sound great through my studio p.a system. This is the best sounding slope shoulder guitar I have ever heard!! I was a bit leary being a high end Martin and Gibson guy, but I'm not anymore. I WILL hit the stage with this one, Yes its that good!! Go try one, you'll see.
