"good value, good playing, good guitar"

Overall: 5 out of 5 stars
(see rating details)
Well it doesn't sound like a Martin, but has a deep sound that you don't expect from a parlor guitar, I go to bluegrass jams and it just blends in so nice. I already have a Martin, so I feel it is a great compliment. I had it set up and plays like butter, has a stunning appearance, overall you would think the price should be double for what it is and is a great value, far better than I expected, if you want a Martin, buy a Martin, but I could gig with this guitar and I wanted something different for jams, but would be great solo or with a band. I would record this with my martin, so in that use is better as a second guitar than a martin and if you record and it is your only guitar it has its own sound.
