"Sounds great and plays great"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I love this guitar. It produces rich, clear tones that ring out whether strummed or played finger style, using the Godin A6 light strings it came with. The playability is excellent. I was looking for a steel string guitar that was a little wider than normal at the nut because my fingers are so thick, and this one is perfect (as I recall, it is 1.8" at the nut). It is a versatile instrument. I use this guitar as my primary instrument for leading worship, but it is also great for solo flamenco style playing for a steel string. guitar. Another great bonus is that this guitar stays in tune! I suppose that's largely due to the way the headstock is designed, the strings are straighter. I will say that the look of the headstock isn't very attractive to me, but who cares if the functionality is improved. I highly recommend this guitar. The Godin strings it came with sound pretty good, but I'm going to try a higher-end string soon, and I bet that makes this guitar really sing.
