I walked into a Guitar Center in Tucson AZ and found the above guitar on the wall. I began to play this guitar and within 5 minutes, it just opened up and was a dream to play. I play Chet Atkins which sounded amazing, flatpick and this guitar was at the command of my fingers. It was so responsive and I had to adjust to how responsive it was. All I can say, this guitar was amazing. Unfortunately, they somehow lost power and the humidifier shut down and the guitar developed a crack on the top soundboard. It did not sound the same, however, I believe that after it is repaired correctly, it will sound amazing again. I have a very critical ear and even my wife could hear the difference when played before. I'm sorry for the individual above but I am sold on the V-class and can truly hear the difference. I just wanted to post my feelings on this matter. As for the strings, the Elixir's are the only ones I exclusively use and they sound amazing. When I get the money, the V-class will be my upgrade. Thanks and happy playing!!!
